Knotronic 500-30 5.2:1 in a 2.5 or 3m glider?


Have any of you used the Knotronic 500-30 with the 5.2:1gb? I am thinking of putting it into a 2.5m and 3m e-glider 7 or 8 cells.

I have not used a Knotronic BL before, how are they in general?

I have a 500-27+6.7:1 on my 3M Graphite and it has a great climb.

I have several Kontronik motors and I have never had a problem with any of them.

Hi Doc

How many cells are you using and which prop?

12 cell CP1700SCR (from Diversity) and an 18.5x12 prop. It's pulling a little over 50 amps.

I use the 500-27 with 5.2 gb, 10 x cp1700, 16x10 prop. Pulls just under 40 amps.

It is installed in the MPX Kranich (2.8m ws, 6 pounds) and it flies great.

I am thinking of the 500-30 so that I can use it in 7 cell comps. Was thinking of using a 18x12 prop.
