HET 2W25 will push over 1000 watts without breaking a sweat and its the price of a couple of those turnigy with shipping 69.00
I've been flying Skyfuns for a few years now but am still seeking that elusive perfect set up. My current (2nd) Skyfun used to run the HK 2836 2350kv until I switched to another motor listed on this thread way way back - a hobbypartz 2750kv. To be honest, it appears to be hardly any different than the 2350, about 50 watts more than 2350 on the same set up. With a 2200 4s APC sports 6x4 and a Turnigy plush 60amp it pushes out 1000w and 68amps on ground testing. iPhone app RC speedo has clocked it at 280kph during slight dives. Not sure about accuracy of this app though.
However, this thing still screams at that pace and I was wondering-what is the best motor/set up that provides 160km/h plus speed with much less screaming? I'm mindful that my new 'airfield' is only a few hundred metres away from houses and want to be more 'respectful' of others.
Are the NTM motors from HK any quieter than the 2350? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=25042
(this is 3000kv so probably not)
What about these famed HET 2W25s? Are they quiet until pushed to the max?
Any help would be great!
