excellent deal on a good motor – Hobbymate HB2835-H 3800KV Brushless Motor for 450 Helicopters Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
this motor was recommended by a friend who was guiding me on a 450 helicopter build. it came with all the necessary hardware and i liked the allen screws to mount the motor on my heli. my original ones were phillips. it run's smooth and did not have any vibrations on my helicopter. it was luke warm to the touch even with the blades spinning at 80% for 5 minutes of flight. the Kv on the motor said 3600 instead of the advertised 3800. that to me was a bonus because it matched my 14T pinion gear much better
Cons:
advertising the specifications needs to be more accurate (ie the 3800kv on the website vs the 3600kv rating marked on the motor when it arrived). that however was to my advantage because i needed a 3500kv motor for my setup and this was close enough
Other:

Bottomline:
great motor and you can't beat the price
