Hobbymate HB2835-H 3800KV – Hobbymate HB2835-H 3800KV Brushless Motor for 450 Helicopters Reviews

Pros:
I have four of these motors on my 450 class Heli's. They perform well and I love them over several "other" motors I have tried. So much so, that I rebuild them when neccessary. I fly around a lot of dusty places and increased bearing wear is a result. Also have replaced the shaft with my self built ones. All you need is a quality 1/8" stainless steel rod stock and a dremel. :-) I used sealed bearings for replacement bearings. They are great little motors!!! Draw some amps so use a 30 amp Controller at least. I use 40 amp with no problems of overheating at all. Even in solid 3d flights. 2200 mah 20C minimum battery.
Cons:
Little bit weak at clip point on shaft. Easy fix if you break in crash though. Takes a good crash to break. :)
Other:
Great price and good match for 450 Heli and 13 tooth pinion. Plenty of juice for 3D flight too.
Bottomline:
Can't go wrong with this motor. All parts needed are included to prepare to plug into your brushless controller.
