The Firepower 480 Sport (3530-11) is a 2.6 ounce, 480 class, 260 watt, 960kv direct drive outrunner brushless motor capable of producing 40 oz of thrust from a 3-cell Lipo battery. It's a good choice for sport planes weighing 18 to 45 ounces, and 3D models weighing up to 28 ounces.
We suggest using a 3 cell Lipo battery that is rated for about a 35 amp continuous discharge (or more), such as an 11.1v 1300 50C to 11.1v 2200 50C.
We recommend using a 30A to 40A Electronic Speed Control (ESC) with this motor.
The Firepower 480 Sport weighs less than a 400 speed brushed/geared motor, and it can be used in many applications calling for a 400 to 600 brushed motor. Keep in mind that the Firepower 480 Sport is a 35mm (1.4") diameter motor, so you'll want to be sure you have room to mount it on your model. Should you need to use a 28mm diameter motor, take a look at the Firepower 450 Sport (2836-11) and see if that will do the trick for you. And if you need a brushless motor that is the same size and weight as the Firepower 480 Sport, but uses smaller propellers and provides higher speeds, please check out the Firepower 480 Speed (3530-14).
The Firepower 480 Sport comes with 4.0mm male connectors installed, and female connectors are included.
MOUNTING OPTIONS: The Firepower 480 Sport can be mounted in front of a firewall using the 3500 series 'X' mount and the 3500 series rotor end prop adapter, which are included with the motor. You can also mount it behind a firewall, and a 4mm prop adapter can be purchased to mount a prop on the motor shaft.
