i am new in this hobby and since I started flying 2 years ago I have 95% of the time flown electric airplanes. In my learning process I have had several electric motors which I have tried in some of my models and collected the data of each one of them and I would like to share it with anyone who might think this information could be useful. Hope it helps other people as it has to me.
Not much data for now but as I continue to do test I will post it here.
I WILL BE ADDING MORE NUMBERS FROM OTHER MOTORS I HAVE ALREADY DONE WHENEVER I HAVE A BREAK
MOST CASES BATTERY USED WAS 2200mah 3 Cell 25-50 IF ANOTHER BTTERY WAS USED I WILL MENTION IT.
I have only been practicing this hobby for almost 2 years now and it has certainly been a great hobby. Never before in my life I was able to get into the hobby even though I always liked it since I was a kid. At that time I could only dream about it since it was imposible for my parents to purchase such an item; because there was simply no money for this sort of things. It was not until I was 47 years old that I decided to venture into this hobby. Maybe not the best time to start because of 3 main reasons, first; the only remote control I ever dealt with was the TV remote, second starting to learn now it was kind of a challenge and third; the economic situation which has not been that good lately. Even though I believed I had all this against me, I simply went ahead and gave it a try. More than a hobby in which I have had a lot of fun, it has turned out in an excellent way to build my confidence back and believe in my capabilities. It has showed me that if you put your mind and effort into something, you can do anything. That even though sometimes you could fail in the process, there is always a greater lesson learned than when you succeed. That sometimes patience is a great virtue that we simply overlook. That you can still meet great people and learn a lot from them and maybe even become good friends. They say that things come to you when you need it the most; this hobby certainly came into my life in the right moment. I am sure that I would have not appreciated it the way...Continue Reading

There is no doubt that Hobby King offers good prices on their merchandise, BUT when yo receive something that does not work, you have to eventually return them the item at your expense to China. Yes I am aware of this everytime I make a purchase. I purchased a micro Spitfire which did not work properly when I received it and now a battery balancer; the Chargery DB8 which does not balance my batteries while I charge them. On the other hand I have made purchases on USA based companies and the end result is totally different. I have learned my lesson!
