Power Up 400 Sport Outrunner Brushless Motor
The Power Up 400 Sport is a 1.8 ounce, 1000KV, 170 watt, 400 class outrunner brushless motor that works well on many small to medium size parkflyers. It will produce up to 30 ounces of thrust when using a 3 cell Lipo battery and a GWS 9050 prop. This motor includes an X mount and prop adapter!
The Power Up 400 Sport is a good choice for models such as the GWS P-38, P-40, Me-109, 190, T-6, Spitfire, Corsair, Mustang, Zero, Formosa and Estarter. You might also consider this motor for planes like the popular Super Cub, Mini Super Sportster, Seawind, Sig Rascal, and many, many others.
You can choose to have moderate performance and very light weight using a GWS EP8040 prop and a 11.1v 1000 30C Lipo battery. If you're looking for high speed, try the GWS HD8060 prop and a 11.1v 1300 50C Lipo battery. And if you're after maximum thrust and a long flight time, the GWS EP9050 prop and a 11.1v 1500 30C Lipo battery will give you excellent results.
MOUNTING OPTIONS: The Power Up 400 Sport includes an X mount that makes it easy to mount the motor in front of a firewall. It also can be mounted on the front of a , or the Aluminum Outrunner Mount for 10mm Sticks, making it a drop-in fit for many planes with 10mm sticks.
A 3.17mm Prop Adapter is included for mounting props.

Please be aware that the battery used can make a tremendous amount of difference in the performance of brushless motors. The above data was obtained using batteries in good condition that were fully charged. Thrust and amp draw may be less with the use of batteries rated at lower amp output, and slightly more using batteries rated for higher amp output. Other factors, such as ESC timing and variations in actual motor KV can affect the performance of brushless motors as well. We recommend the use of a Watt Meter to test the current draw of your particular power system, especially if you plan to use a prop that pushes the motor near it's maximum amp rating.
