An LRK (outrunner) brushless motor for R/C aircraft up to 3.5 kg powered by 7-16 cells or 2-5S LiPo; suitable for cabin models, scale models, aerobatic models and gliders - this motor would work well in competition gliders with a large prop - use the 110A speed controller if you are going to push this motor. No gearbox is required because of the high torque of this motor type.

Prop figures above:
Are actual measurements taken with this motor fitted to my E-Flite Beaver cabin model. The model is 1.8m wingspan and weighs 2.36kg. I tried a 15x7" prop on 3S first and the Beaver flew like a pylon racer. I stepped back to the 13x6.5" and I now fly on full throttle for take-off and half-throttle during the flight. Measurements with the 13x6.5" were taken with a partly depleted battery using an Emeter, so real figures may be a little higher.
