Power Up 450 Sport Outrunner Brushless Motor
The Power Up 450 Sport is a 2.5 ounce, 1100KV, 450 class outrunner brushless motor that works well on many medium to large size parkflyers. It will produce up to 37 ounces of thrust when using a 3 cell Lipo battery and a GWS 1060 prop. This motor includes an X mount and prop adapter!
The Power Up 450 Sport is a good choice for a wide variety of models. You can choose to have moderate performance and light weight using a GWS EP9050 prop and a 11.1v 1300 30C or 11.1v 1500 30C Lipo battery. If you're looking for high speed and maximum thrust, try the GWS EP1060 prop and a 11.1v 1800 50C Lipo battery.
We recommend using a 30A to 40A ESC with the Power Up 450 Sport motor. Many of our speed controls come with 3.5mm female connectors installed, so no soldering is needed when used with this motor.
The Power Up 450 Sport is a good motor to use in a brushless conversion of the popular Hobby Zone Super Cub. We suggest using the motor with a HURC 22 Amp ESC, APC 9 x 6E Prop and an 11.1v 1300mah 30C lipo battery for best performance. We also sell a special aluminum Motor Mount for the HZ Super Cub which replaces the stock gearbox and takes the guesswork out of mounting the Power Up 450 Sport brushless outrunner motor in the Super Cub.
MOUNTING OPTIONS: The Power Up 450 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 GWS Plastic Outrunner Mount, or an Aluminum Outrunner Mount for 10mm Sticks, making it a drop-in fit for many planes with 10mm sticks.
A 4mm 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.
