The 24gm 1300kv brushless motor (also called 2730) is a truly wonderful and versatile motor that earned the nickname “Blue Wonder” (it once had a blue color, unfortunately the current models are silver) because it can handle a wide variety of props and can be used with 2S or 3S Lipo batteries. The maximum recommended current draw is around 10 amps. The recommended 2-blade propeller with a 3S system is an 8×6, and on our twin-engine models it performs very well with a 9×7 3-bladed propeller. We’ve used it with a 12×3 prop on a 2S ultra-light Damioselle model.
RPM rating: 1300kv (no load)
Shaft size: 3mm
Weight: about 24gms (1oz)
Voltage – 2S or 3S battery
Power – 90 watts approx. at 8 amps (with 3S battery)
Recommended prop – 8×6 2-blade (or 9×7 3 blade when used in twin-motor configuration)
The motor is supplied with the aluminum motor mount. A 10-amp ESC, and propsaver or prop adapter is required (not included, but we sell them separately). For best results we strongly recommend using a removeable “threadlocker” compound on the tiny grub screws that hold the motor to the mount.
We offer several custom-designed 3D-printed spinners specifically designed for the 3-bladed props in varieties appropriate for our models.
This motor is also available in a 1700kv version (we call it the “Blue Monster” and a 3000kv version (called the OMG). All three versions are the same physical size and weight but differ in RRM and current draw.
