Default Can anyone identify this motor

Can anyone tell me what motor I have here. Near as I can measure it is 50 mm in diameter, 38 mm long, and weighs 16 0z. It has no markings on it at all.

If the cannot give you the information ...

Rule of thumb for a decent motor: 3watt/gram.

Several simple methods for determining Kv

Looks like a motor made by DYS from the colour. Can't help more than that.

It looks like an XYH C5065 these motors were sold under many names but XYH are the actual manufacturer. The motor is made in a few different Kv values and you can only find that out by testing:

By the way, the length of 38mm you quote must be wrong, the photo shows that the motor is longer than it is wide, not vice versa. There is a dimensional diagram in the above link so you can check if it is the right motor. XYH also do a 55mmm long version called C5055.

I think it looks like one of those Power Up (rebranded) ones that HeadrupRC used to sell 7-8 years ago. And yeah, that is a lot of motor. Man JPF, you are like an Encyclopedia of RC aircraft.

Thanks, the 38mm was just for the barrel length, the chrome part.
