No gearbox is required because of the high torque of this motor type.

* Actual test by David Morgan using an Emeter - AN folders draw more amps than APC-E for the same size and give more thrust.

** Prop figures given here are for the Series 1 motor, but cna be used as a guide for the Series 2. Generally, the Series 2 motor is more efficient than the Series 1 and may draw less amps but produce more power.
