Pushers are for wings and Jets.
Tractors are conventional motors mounted on the front of a plane through a firewall or behind a mount.. Pushers are normally on the rear of a plane and they axle faces away from the plane/wing. Pushers with a C Clip can be mounted on the front of a plane and act as a tractor would - in front of a firewall.
This is a great little brushless motor that is very powerful. I run it both direct drive and geared. Direct drive you should not go larger than 5x4 prop, which will get you exptremely high speed. A GWS 400 gearbox or something that holds a 400 size motor is ideal for geared operation in parkflyers, or 3D planes.
Yes - this motor, although called a 300DF is 400 size !
This motor is available in 2.3mm for geared operation, and I have some 3mm bells for direct drive. 2.3mm is more versatile, but 3mm is obviously less likely to bend or break. I use a prop saver on all my pushers and in addition to saving props, will keep the shaft from bending.
Max Current: 10 Amps.
Weight: 29.7 grams
Shaft Diameter: 2.3mm
Mount holes: standard 16.5 & 19.5
We have done extensive testing on this motor and are really excited about putting it into action in some of our IFO's, Tiger Moths (can you say 3D Tiger Moth), PT-17, and any plane 12 oz's or less should go 3D !
The motor has been tested and works well with two and three LiPo cells in series. I like them on three LiPos !
A two cell runs between 6 and 8.4 volts. A three cell runs between 9 and 12.6 volts, depending on the state of charge. See the Tech Chart to figure out what type of performance you'll get with these motors.
