450 Brushless Motor for Esky's Belt CP and 450 RC HelicopterNavigator2011September 7, 2011I am using this Esky motor (EK5-0006) in a Walkera V400D02. My previous motor had a 3.0mm shaft and I had a hard time finding a correctly sized pinion gear that would work with the V400D02 main gear. This Esky motor has a 2.3mm shaft, for which pinion gears are far more easy to find. I picked up a 2.3mm pinion at another online vendor, used my 2801 Pro Tx to adjust the motor's output, and everything motor-related has been great ever since.
450 Brushless Motor for Esky's Belt CP and 450 RC HelicopterVictor PawlikApril 4, 2011I've been using this motor on my Belt CP for the last 4yrs and its still as powerfull now as when I bought it. I had the 3100 on my HBKing at first, and it did the job untill I got better at flying. I put the 3800 on it and it was like a rocket. I'm familiar with both Esky and Exceed being that I run the Exceed 4500 inrunners in my 64mm edf- F-16's. And my opinion there both worth every penny but if Esky made a edf Br/motor I would go with Esky. And by the way Louis why do you need a retainer or washers. And as far as the bullit connectors go, I think it good that Esky dont put them on because they dont know what size your using on your speed controler anyway.
450 Brushless Motor for Esky's Belt CP and 450 RC HelicopterlouisMarch 13, 2010Unfortunatly this motor is not the best i have bought two so far and both have been defective they dont have a collar or retainer for the shaft or motor screws or bullet conectors wich makes you still go to your local hobby shop and the first one came apart in flight and fortunetly i was able to save my heli the second one started to loose power and eventualy just died after about 8 flights so i changed to the exceed rc alpha 400 for the trex 450 (3500kv) and it is awsome more than enough power great punches in 3d and normal flight and it does have a e-clip that holds the shaft in plus it comes with the motor screws and bullet conectors the only thing is that there are no washers but they are not hard to find great job exceed rc ..
