The Firepower 480 Speed (3530-14) is a 2.6 ounce, 480 class, 300 watt, 1400kv outrunner brushless motor designed for high speed planes, and for models where prop size is limited to 8 or 9 inches. This motor is a good choice for warbirds and sleek sport planes weighing 20 to 35 ounces.
The APC 8x4E is a good all around prop for this motor. The APC 8x6 prop can be used for maximum speed, and the APC 9x4.5E prop can be used for maximum thrust.
We suggest using a 3 cell Lipo battery that is rated for about a 45 amp continuous discharge (or more), such as an 11.1v 1500 30C to 11.1v 2200 50C.
We recommend using a 30A to 45A Electronic Speed Control (ESC) with this motor, depending on which prop you use.
The Firepower 480 Speed comes with 4.0mm male connectors installed, and female connectors are included.
MOUNTING OPTIONS: The Firepower 480 Speed 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 5mm prop adapter can be purchased to mount a prop on the motor shaft.
