In the past, the Edge Racing series motors made their mark in the quadcopter market, and now we have them
available in the foamy airplane market.

I received two of these motors for review from Buddy RC, and I've got to say that I am impressed!

In my current possession, I have 2304-1800kv installed on a Value Hobby 32" Sbach foamy,
and 2305-1850kv installed on a WMParkflyers 34" MX2 foamy....

In the packaging upon opening, I found the motor, 2 o-rings, 2 longer rubberbands, 4 mounting wood screws,
and 2 different prop adapter rings.



A new feature that I haven't seen before with foamy motors is that the prop saver mounting tabs are
machined as part of the motor bell. I do like the built in prop saver band/o-ring mounting ears. I can say
it is so much easier to get the bands on them compared to the screw heads of the other motors. I find myself
not having to reach for my prop-saver band installation tool as I have for the past motors I've ran. I use either
the standard o-rings, or pieces of cut off elastic thera-band for mounting the propeller.

These motors feature a hollow hardened motor shaft to help with weight-saving and strength.
I can say that I have been durability testing these motors on a weekly basis at my indoor flying sessions.
I've had a few good "whacks" on the gymnasium floor. So far, everything is looking to be strait and true
with no vibrations or visual wobbling on the bells noticed yet.

On the backside, the motor mounting screw hole tabs are the same dimensions as the Sunnysky x2206-1900kv and
the Gforce 2206-1900 motors. This made swapping out motors a snap and it's nice to know that these are a direct
install/replacement for setups that we already have.

These motors are lightweight, powerful, and the build quality is great. I've have been flying these for the past month
indoors and outside any chance I get, since I'm in the middle of the Ohio winter, and foamy season is at hand.

In the past, I have ran SunnySky 2206-1900kv and Gforce 2206-1900kv motors on my foamies fueled by 2 cell lipos
(450mah and 800mah) running Gemfan or GWS direct drive 8x4 props for many years now.
The two Edge racing motors I have are both more powerfull, in my experience. I did notice quite the power gain
compared to the old motors. They also seem to run quieter too with less harmonic whining noises, from my experience.

During the last indoor session, I shot some pics of the watt meter during a static test of both of my foamies running
2s-800mah pack and Gemfan 8x4 orange prop:

With the results above, even with the power/handling on my foamies, as amazing as it feels to me now, I'm almost
sure these motors are capable of even more... I don't feel that I am pushing them even close to their
limits as they come down absolutely "cold" in temperature compared to my old motors.

I will have periodic updates as time goes on, so keep checking back.

Pakratt, do you realize that your pictures in post three are unreadable in the form you have posted them? Instead of putting a picture of the web page in your post, put a link to the page so that we can read it.

Yes, I can open the picture in its' own window, but on my screen it is about two inches wide and the 10 in height of my monitor and I cannot read it. I don't like downloading pdf's. A link to one of the motors is below. Just copy it out of your browser address bar and paste it into the posting. Probably simpler than posting a picture or a pdf.

I see now that the link brings you to the overview portion of the page. There is a "Tech Specs" tab that you can select to bring up the pictures you have posted. I guess that is the best we can do.

Yeah, the images on their website are massively broken when I try to link them, and I did the best thing I knew to to which was my last two options....

Example: (this was the first 4 sections of one motor's image links)

Well the link I posted will get people to the right place. A little back and forth to get to the specific motor you want info on but it is doable.

I am intrigued by these motors. The pictures seem to show a single strand wind but I cannot tell if that is a real picture or a rendering. It looks like there is space for a bit more copper in the pictures. I may order a pair for a twin I have in mind. Not real wild about the prop saver type prop attachment for the higher Kv motors on 3S.

Yes, that is the same page I linked this morning. Interesting, this morning it was in English, now Chineese. Google translated enoung though.

I just tested a bit more and while the link for Specifications translated to "Product Parameters" that link will not bring up the charts and specs like it did this morning.

I went to the indoor fly again this past Sunday with my local Eagle Squadron, Galion, Ohio
crew, and I tried something different on the Western Michigan Park Flyers MX2 with
the 2305-1850kv motor.

This week I flew a 9x5 Gemfan orange prop instead of the Gemfan 8x4 that I have
been flying.........

Wow! What crazy fun!


This is the new static full throttle reading with the 25C-2s-800 lipo and 9x5 prop.

I'm still ok with my setup, right at the borderline upper range... I have a 16amp/20amp burst esc, and
I'm running 25C-800mah packs which are capable of 20 amps when you do the math.
(after flight, batteries are ever so slightly warm to the touch with my flying style)

Temperatures are actually pretty low still.... very acceptable in my opinion.
I have other motors that run much hotter temperatures than this one does.
Granted, I'm not wide open throttle constantly, as it isn't required with this setup,
but I'm confident that I can use the power as my flying style sees fit.


Here are a couple short videos of the 9x5 prop performance with the 2305-1850kv
running on the same 25C - 2s-800 mah packs I've been running.



Ken's MX2 (2 min 10 sec)


Ken flying his MX2 (2 min 20 sec)



Ending results for my 9x5 prop testing this past weekend on the 2305-1850kv Edge Racing motor:

I'm going to keep running a 9x5 on this motor and will report back with updates as time goes....





As far as the 2304-1800kv motor stands on my Value Hobby Sbach stands.....
It's still performing like a champ, and I'm going to stick with the 8x4 gemfan
props on that one.

Here's a short video of that one flying a little:

Ken's Sbach (1 min 18 sec)



Still very happy and impressed with these SunnySky Edge Racing motors!!!!!!
