The new version of the Wicked EDF motor has arrived! This motor was designed specifically to operate in the 600-800 watt range with 4S lipos. This is a great motor for use in the 64mm EDF fan units and in 64mm EDF twin EDF models such as the Hobby Lobby SU-34. This is also is a great motor for the Hobby People Squall with either the 3 blade or 5 blade Squall rotor (the Squall stock fan requires the 3mm shaft and XF rotor plug). Motor leads are bare wire and direct soldering of motor wires to the ESC is recommended.
NOTE: This motor is not intended to be used in any fan larger than 64mm with the exception of the Squall 70mm rotor as that is a special low load rotor. Use in bigger fans such as the HET 6904 or Wemotec Minifan 480 Prp or at higher watt levels is at your risk.
Motor weight with standoff adapter ready to mount: 86 grams
Shaft size: 3.00mm for 64mm EDO type I fan or 4mm for HET 6404 fan
ESC Timing: Low for Pentium Series ESCs (higher timing does not increase RPM only amp draw)
Here is some test data from my Eagletree logger (more data to come)
Squall/Phase 3 F-16 70mm 3 blade rotor and 4S 4000 mah lipo: 51,000 rpm, 693 watts, 46.6 amps
Squall/Phase 3 F-16 5 blade rotor and 4S 4000 mah lipo: 46,069 rpm, 786 watts, 54.7 amps
EDO Type I 64mm rotor* and 4S 4000 mah lipo: 50,500rpm, 675 watts, 45 amps
(*Dynamic balancing is HIGHLY recommended on the EDO I fan at these watts)
Motor with standoff adapter and EDO rotor plug: For use in the 64mm EDO style 5 blade fans units
Motor with standoff adapter and no rotor plug : 3mm shaft output or 1/8" shaft output
WARNING: Do not use any Wicked EDF motors with Electrifly or Suppo brushless ESCs, they can not handle the the high rpm of a 6 pole outrunner and will fry the ESC and motor. The Hobbywing Pentium brand of ESCs are the only recommended ESC for all Wicked EDF motors. If using any other brand please contact the ESC manufacturer to get the rpm limitation of the ESC with a 6 pole outrunner motor. If you are unsure of the ESC you have then please email DonsRC before you try as DonsRC can not be held responsible for burned out motors which are damaged due to lower quality brushless ESCs.
DO NOT SHORTEN THE THREE MOTOR WIRES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Shortening the motors wires will VOID any warranty and DonsRC will not service any motors or be held responsible for any collateral damage to ESCs, fan units, lipos, planes, etc when motor leads have been shortened. In other words don't do it!
NOTE: The use of bullet connector on the motor leads is NOT recommended. Direct solder the motor leads to the ESC leads with 1/4" overlap. Bullet connectors can cause issues that can lead to ESC failure and or motor failure. Use bullet connectors at your own risk.
10/19/2014: Due to the slow economy and MOQ from my supplier on this motor, at this time I have no plans on restocking this motor.
