Hello, this is my 2nd test.

Long test... to make it close to the real flight situation..

Bernoulli 3515 500kv - 2nd Test 6S with 1248 & 1447 (16 min 51 sec)

Now lets see the motor first:

Came with built in 20A ESC (35A burst) and bright LED light.
Inside the box we can find:
- Manual
- Direct mount propeller adapter and screws.
- Standard mount propeller adapter (CW thread) and screws + M6 Lock nut.
- 50cm Power Wires with XT-30 plug.
- 75cm Signal Wires (optional length),
- Motor mount screws.

Motor designed to withstand extreme condition, so we don't need to worry about wet condition since the ESC already coated
- Motor = 167g,
- Power Wires 16AWG 50cm + Signal Wires 75cm = 28g
- Standard prop mount with 4 M3 screws = 12g
- Size: (will update)

Built in ESC:
- No need for settings, just plug and play! this is good! => Simple to build, neat result,
- 20A (35A max burst) 4-6S rated ESC's should be enough for most application,
- ESC far away from sensitive equipment, especially compass,
- No ESC replacement, Marc from Inspired Flight guaranteed for Whole Motor Replacement if something going wrong with the motor.

How to set the LED (Video on my 1st test
- Press 0.5 second to change light color (default Green), => Green-Yellow-Blue-Magenta-Cyan-White-Off-Red-Green
- Press 5 second to change light pattern (default Solid),

How to set motor direction (Video on my 1st test):
- Switch to change direction.
- Unplug power source
- Plug back power source.

Test condition:
- 800m above sea level
- Two different propellers, CF-1248 and CF-1447.
- Fully charged batteries, 2x3S 1100mAh 25C in series, Quadcopter ≈ 6S 4400mAh 25C ≈ 6S 8800mAh 12C
- Reversed test, max PWM first just want to know about the max thrust with fully charged battery.
- Throttle position between 40-75% to simulate in flight situation.

To be continued....

Hello, this is my test and review about new Bernoulli 3515 motor from Inspired Flight.

Bernoulli 3515 500kv Integrated Motor Built in ESC & LED light - Thrust Test and Settings (12 min 36 sec)

First impressions:
- Really nice build quality.
- Super smooth bearings.
- Bright LED,
- A lot of accessories,

I need to know about the motor in real flight situation, not only the max thrust in perfect lab situation.
So my test using partially charged old batteries and 1447 carbon fiber props.
I think this represents a motor performance: in the middle to the end of the flight.

Test result with 6S batt + 1447 props:

- 770g (40%, 4.19A)
- 890g (45%, 5,36A)
- 990g (50%, 6,16A)
- 1090g (55%, 7,25A)
- 1220g (60%, 8,72A)

Its safe to say 900-1100g = recommended weight per motor. (1200g should be no problem in calm day situation)

Based on 8 minutes test, temperature never reach 47C, so motor capable to use bigger props if more thrust needed.
Unfortunately I don't have 15" and 16" props. I just have 12", 14" and 17" to test with the motor.
I will post my test with 12" + 6S later (maybe 17" with lower batt setup)


Mfr specs:

Motor Size: 3515
RPM per Volt: 500 kV
Shaft Size: 4 mm
Weight: 167g
Input Voltage Range: 10V - 25.5V
Recommended Battery: 4s - 6s LiPo (14.8v - 22.2v
Continuous Current: 20 Amps (500W)
Burst Current: 35 Amps (875W)
Mounting Bolt Pattern: 16x19, 19x25, &

Back to 2015, this is one of the most powerful racing motor i can get.
I decided to make a new lighter frame for the motors.
Lets see how the old guy perfoms, paired with the new Racerstar Tattoo 35A ESC's..

SunnySky x2207s 2700kv 3S brushless motor thrust test 6040 5040 (7 min 45 sec)

As you can see, this motor still has a lot of thrust. smooth, and superb built quality.
I'm not a racer, so 3S + 6040 CF props + 35A ESC setup should be enough for me..

Motor: Sunnysky x2207s 2700kv
ESC: Racerstar Tattoo 35A,
- Carbon FIber 6040,
- Kingkong 6040,
- Plastic 5040, (sorry, the green propeller is Gemfan 5030)
