Turnigy G60 reduced at Hobbyking
« on: September 18, 2019, 02:52:50 PM »

The Turnigy G60 brushless motor was discussed on a previous thread as being good for the vintage style 48" planing hulls.

The G60 has been considerably reduced in HobbyKing's current cyber sale from 49.10 to 33.93, a 30% off (saving 15.17).
It says they are in stock in the UK.

Check the price of batteries first. These motors require  5~7 Cell /18.5~25.9V

The given voltage is to produce the maximum wattage and highest thrust when used as an aircraft motor. It should run on a 12V supply (3S) although the full revs will be around half of that given.Brushless motors will run on lower than the rated voltage and will not heat up as much and use a lower amperage ESC. I use a motor rated as 6S and around 650kV in my ST Cruiser on 3S, it still gives too much thrust and needs the ESC set to around 60%. At this the maximum current is around 5 - 6A so will give a good long run time on 2 3S 8000mAh in parallel.
