Default ewatt brushless motors

Hi everyone, does anyone have any experience with ewatt (in Australia, don't know what they are called elsewhere) brushless motors. They are quite inexpensive, and seem to work very well but I have'nt seen them in this forum. The less powerfull r2212 bell type ones, coloured pink and purple have been discussed ,but not the blue and silver "can "style 2217 and 2213 types which I have been using. For $25-29.00 aud they are great value for money and the after sale service is first rate. They come in a plastic box with bullet connectors, heatshrink, mount and screws, plus front and pusher mounting options and prop adaptors!. Would be interested in hearing from someone else who has tied them Cheers...

They look suspiciously like Turnigy motors in a different color: I tested one of these Turnigy motors some time ago: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...hlight=Turnigy

Default Turnigy/ewatts brushless motors

Hi Dr Kiwi, Thanks for the advice. On further investigation, it looks like they are the same motor rebadged. I have found that the Ewatts name appears on other items that are also marketed under different banners, but that is just free enterprise. We have nowhere near the amount of variety here in Australia (and even less in Tasmania!) that you have in the U.S., hence the lack of info on many items, but thats life Most brushless motors here are twice to three times the price of the Ewatts/Turnigy products so they are really good value for their performance. I use the 2500kv one in my son's SB "Komet", with an APC 7x5 prop and a 3s 2200mah lipo through a 40 amp esc and it flies great. The plane is virtually indestructable, and has now been pranged 33 times, so an expensive motor would counter productive. Being so inexpensive, we can keep practicing aerobatics (inverted touch and goes etc) without grimacing every time it cartwheels at 130 kph And it goes vertical, and flies backwards in gales.... cheers
