Yeah, I have to blow so much sunshine in my emails at work that I almost forbid myself from doing it out in the real world... I just couldn't bring myself to lather them up, so no motor for me lol

I've sent three emails with no response. Seems to me they're playing favorites, but then again they could just be very busy.

Smile 2217/12 flight review

Well my new 2217/12 motor arrived the other day and I was excited to get it bolted into my Hobby People Wasp and see how it would measure up.
The Wasp has been flying well with a Turnigy 450 of the same weight and nearly the same power specs as the new Pulso, although the Pulso has a higher amp ceiling of 30A.
Because the Pulso has the identical mounting and prop adapter style as the Turnigy it is replacing today, the motor bolted up without a hitch.
Powering up the aircraft and doing a few quick tests with a 9x4 MAS prop, the Wattmeter showed 27 amps @ 11.2V for a total of 303 watts and enough thrust to wanna pull the 26oz Wasp (AUW) vertical out of my hands.
Changing to a smaller but speedier 8X6 APC prop, using the same Rhino 1750mah 3s battery, the Wattmeter showed 23.7 amps @ 11.5v for a total of 273 watts. Thrust was not quite what the 9in prop had, but I had expected that. To compare, the Turnigy 450 was not as amp hungry but also would not pull the Wasp vertical for any extended period of time in flight.

OK.....out at the field, pre-flight done and we're ready for our first flight. Fitted with the 9in APC prop, the taxi and take off showed quite a bit of reserve power as I was barely at 1/2 throttlestick to get airborne and climbout. As I made my first turn away from the pit area I gassed her up to full.....hey very cool, that motor is strong! Pulling my Wasp through manuevers that take some heavy throttle such as vertical climb from a high speed low pass showed the big plane (my heaviest ) continuing to climb slowly as long as I held her nose straight up. Not unlimited but better than I had seen before with the HC motor.
Bringing the plane down and checking things over showed only a warm motor, ESC and battery.....just what you'd want.
Changing batteries and switching to the 8x6 APC prop showed some increase in top speed with a trade off of less thrust. The Wasp has quite a wide wing cord and the shape of the wing (Clark Y flatbottom) makes for a bit of drag when the speed gets pushed up, but the Wasp was bookin along faster than I had seen her fly before.
Runtime was decreased only slightly from the lower powered motor with same Rhino 1750 3s.

All in all, the Pulso 2217/12 450 is another strong smooth player, along with the 400 sized 2212/20 I tested earlier. Recommended

I have also sent three emails over the last four weeks with no response. They have all been very polite, not demanding, and explained my qualifications to test, review, and help promote their products. I guess they are overwhelmed but it really leaves me lacking in desire to ever want to purchase any of their products. They should at least correspond back that the request was denied.

What motor would be similar or a step up from the 480 motor in a T-28?

Default Pulso 480?

Hi Clint,
Since their website only lists motor output in ounces, not watts, I'd say the motor for a 30-35 oz (845-1000 gr) model would be the 2217 series;

Good Luck!

Well this is a old thread that I wanted to pull up and see how the motors that the lucky ones received are still using them.
I got the 28/20/10 I didn't realize it has been almost 3 years since I have been using this motor with out any issues. I lawn darted the plane it was on the motor was buried in the topsoil and full of dirt. That was only a couple of months after I put it on the plane and flying with it. I rinsed it out good let it dry and I am still using it on the same plane and It is still running great even after the lawn dart action. This motor has been on the same plane and I have well over 300 hundred flights on it.
Just wondering who is still running their motor and if You liked them, and how they have been standing up to the use, and abuse over time.

Any new people this is a old thread brought back from the dark corners of the basement no new free motors here.

I got a 2826/12 from them. It has actually been an outstanding motor for me. It lives in an E-flite Diamante that I fly on 4S or 5S. It handles 5S quite nicely. I don't keep a true tally of how many flights I have on it, but I would guesstimate it at over 200 trouble free sorties

My Pulso 4130/12 & Pulso 70 amp controller combo is still pulling my BME Cap Maniac along without problem.

The only issue I had, was a bad solder joint on the Pulso ESC wire from the battery, and that was my fault. The motor is spectacular on 6 cells with the plane.



I started on 5 cells, but went to 6 and love it. I try to not crank on the throttle too much since 6 cells is its top rating.



Honestly, I think this Pulso freebie is one of the best motors I have. Not just due to the "Try Me" price, but because flight after flight, it just purrs and pours on the power.

Nitro gave the answer, and it was in my original post.

Glad to hear two of you are still using these motor with no issues.
I figured I would ask because I can't be the only one that is happy with my 20.00 dollar motor. Wish they would hurry up now and get the factory retooled so I can get another motor in the same size for a plane that I will be working on soon.
Figured more of the folks that got this deal might chime in and post up. The long term results that matter the most actual flying, and how they have been holding up.

Nitro I do love your pilot made me grin the first time you posted that plane, and still does.

In hindsight i wish i would've gone with a bigger motor given the prices... but my 2212 1900kv is still going strong! I have it in a profile F-22, and it absolutely Rips on a 6x4.
