The 24gm 1700kv “Blue Monster” brushless motor (also called 2730) is more powerful than the similar 1300KV “motor. We’ve used the 1700kv motor on the “Combat Komet” and the ME-262 with a 3-cell battery. Regarding the Prop – understanding that the 1300 works very well with the large 9×7 3-bladed prop in our twins (or an 8×6 2-blade prop with a single-engine plane), the higher-speed 1700KV motor requires a smaller propeller. The recommended 2-blade propeller with a 3S battery setup is a 6×5.5 APC. You may use a 3-blade 8×4.5 propeller with a 2-cell battery. The maximum recommended current draw is around 12 amps.
The 1700 motor is identical in size and weight tot he 1300. These motors are no longer being made with the lovely blue anodized color that gave them their nickname, unfortunately….
The motor is supplied with the aluminum motor mount. An ESC and a propsaver or prop adapter is required (not included, but available separately). For best results we strongly recommend using a removeable “threadlocker” compound on the tiny grub screws that hold the motor to the mount.
Shaft size: 3mm
Weight: about 24gms (1oz)
Voltage – 2S or 3S battery
Power – 110 watts approx. at 10 amps
Recommended prop – 7×4 or 6×5.5 APC high-speed
