I was surprised by the power output. My Himax 6330-210 has better output and is almost 400 grams lighter. I'm currently running a 20.5x14 on my Himax with 10S

at exf3bguy,
I only have 1 Leopard motor, a 4250, a lot smaller but this motor is 80mm dia. x 72mm long yours is (whether it's the old or new 6330) is 63mm x 67mm, I would hope it's lighter. This motor puts out (according to the above) 13.4kg of thrust, 29.5 pounds of thrust. What does the 6330 put out? The 6330 is a very popular F3A motor but I couldn't find any thrust specifications only rpm at voltage readings and my prop/rpm/thrust calculator didn't go to a 20" or 21" prop.

Not very scientific but I have been flying IMAC and F3A for a long time. In both disciplines a power to weight ratio of 2:1 is pretty standard. That being said, the Himax has to be around 24lb to 27lb of thrust. My current F3A airplane is heavy at 12 lbs ( converted from YS power ) but the Himax gives me unlimited vertical. I may be wrong here but I would expect the 80mm outrunner to be in the same power class as a 50cc-60cc gasser.
