12.6 is no load voltage, load voltage is nominal at 3.5 a cell below that represents a cell that's not holding voltage in a pack.

Yeah, I wish per cell load voltage was 4.2....

So you do the math at [desired RPM / (3.5nominal cell voltage x cell count) ] and if you have higher c rated batteries you can go up around .1 for 30c or .2 for 40c on the voltage which makes a notable difference in RPM.

For Sherlocks case 37000 calculated RPMs is around 3lbs with this rotor so he should be cool if he has 3s packs that keep voltage...amps will go up of course

How can you tell?

Thx

On the product page in the "Stock Arrival Alert" box. It says "End Mar".

The calculation is only to determine the resulting Kv of a motor.
in this case a 3600kv motor on 3s would work in the same range of power an engine of (X) Kv to 4s.
3600 * (3.5 * 3) = 37.800 / (3.5 * 4) = 2700.
this has nothing to do with rpm.

3 cell lipo, have a voltage of approximately 12.6Volts.
The new batteries 30 and 20 C 40C sustain discharge voltage 11V average. (Use the voltage rating is very rough and correct)

A very important factor that is missing from this equation is the NLS% (percentage of No Load Speed.)
In EDF is very important that the engine is not charged too much for this factor does not drop below 80%. Possibly in some applications where the motor is much torture can be used up to 75%. But it is highly not recommended.

Also consider the actual motor Kv can vary the die post for the manufacturer.

Take the voltaje of the battery and multiply the Kv of the motor and multiply for %NLS factor = fan RPM.
11.1V x 3600 x 80%= 31,968 RPM.

I used to take the 10-15% loss out of both calculations but later found it was moot because the RPMs would be proportional and that's why I put calculated RPM to thrust.
 Mar 07, 2012, 12:32 PM Registered User Joined Feb 2006 2,429 Posts so at 32k rpm will it produce about 3lbs of thrust? if so I will have about 6lbs for twin operation. That is plenty it would be more than 1 to 1 weight ratio on 3s light set up.

 Mar 07, 2012, 01:00 PM it wasn't me flying that plane United States, NC, Wilmington Joined Mar 2011 811 Posts I guess you guys know both fans are availible here in the states now so no waiting on a HK order to get 1... I'm planning to do a little experimenting as well....will post results here.. Take care............Chris

I will go another route, i cant find anyone that wants to buy the fan and motor< i got two sets of them LOL
 Mar 07, 2012, 06:46 PM Registered User Mexico, BC, Mexicali Joined Aug 2004 6,046 Posts Sherlock You have few options. 1.- put to motors in 70mm EDF clone 6 blades. with 3s, around 600 watts. for 4s is around 1000-1100 watts.with 5 blades starmax clone./ detrum. in Het / wemo fan around 800 -900 watts. 2.- buy new motor L2855-2800Kv.

If you have a big amp esc and pack you could look at a 2800 to 3000 kv motor. sherlockshah, Yeah I think you have too high of a kv motor for even 3S on this fan. You aren't going to be happy. It seems this fan likes a low kv motor on high voltage to really make it shine.
