TURNIGY manuals/info? TR 42-60C 500Kv & Plush 60 -- added test data

Am considering getting these; can I download their manuals/info, mount dims etc, from somewhere? Or via e-mail?

What info specifically are you looking for? I have a Turnigy 50-65C and a Plush 80 ESC. I don't think the motor came with instructions... all the specs are listed on HC's website along with real world results posted by users.

The Plush ESC is pretty much a standard unit.. you can program via your TX and change LVC, timing, etc. It automatically detects cell count.

If you're interested, I can scan the instructions when I get home & post them...

Edit: In addition, you may want to consider the SK version of the Turnigy motors... better bearings & magnets. They don't have an exact replacement of the one you posted but this one is pretty close.

It does not appear that dimensioned drawings are available on the motors and after perusing HC's forums it appears that many have posted looking for exact dimensions....

some data

Got them and they seem to plug and play pretty well.

Grub screw for for shaft collar was too long; fortunatly had a shorter one.

Never feel reall good about my tach data; so my Calc & DriveCalc aren't doing too well predicting performance.

Motor dia: 42mm
Length: 60?
To prop thrust plane: 65
Add Cross: 68.5
shaft stick out of motor: 20

Chinese paper doesn't scan too well ; and will do the programming card later.

Same motor, new end bell. They are made by http://www.xyhmotor.com/en/Emp_Conta...Action=Contact in China, just like many of the other "inexpensive" Chinese motors. My data is in Drive Calculator, which you can download at http://www.drivecalc.de if you want to play with cell counts and props. I'm using it in my Flite 40, now with a 6S1P "A123" pack and APC 14x8.5E prop.

Here's the manuals/info I got with my HC order: ESC, programing card, mount and prop adapter.

Didn't get the sheet of paper like the one shown under the motor in you photo ken.

Also, though shown on the diagram, there wasn't a collet type adapter.

The Plush 60 and 80 amp units are trouble free. I have the SK version of this motor and use it on 6 cell Lipos with 12 x 8 or 12x10 props. This gives my 6.5 lb plane unlimited vertical. However, is possible front mount the motor as with the rear mount the motor flexs when in flight and this has loosened a couple of magnets.

I've used two motors like this one on one plane and would like to get a better quality motor with the same spec's and size (diameter not wider than 45mm).

Anyone?

In general, HK is not interested in giving away good info, only in selling stuff. Their plan is that you keep buying more different things until you get what you want.

I use some of the other dealers to figure things out. The "X" mount plate for example is probably the same as this one:

http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...unt-for/Detail

So if the motor has the four holes on a 25mm spacing, the holes for attaching the "X" mount to the plane will be as seen there. I think I actually measured those at 42 mm.

Set it up for 14 magnets. Again, HK will not tell you but all of these that I have looked at have 12 arm stators and 14 magnets. If you want to count the magnets place a small washer on the outside of the magnet housing, make a mark in the hole, and advance it around until you get back to the start. If you mark every hole, you should have 14 evenly spaced marks.

Some larger high Kv motors will have 8 or 10 magnets, some smaller motors will have 9 arm stators and 4 to 12 magnets.
