I know the Hacker A40 10L turbine motor has been flown in the 600 class Logo heli's but I was curious if anyone has flown it in a heavier heli...specifically the MA Razor 600E?

I had a Tango motor in my Razor and unfortunately it demagnatized or burned up..I'm not exactly sure since I haven't pulled it apart yet but it is locked up. I know the A50 it a good motor for the Razor but was just curious if anyone has tried the A40 turbine with a Razor on 10S.

Thanks.

hey, its to small, send the Kontronics motor into tower, they will replace it for free. take it apart and they wont replace it.

try the Xera motor, the 4025 2Y , its a drop in replacement and will have about 10% more power and about the same flight time. the efficiency is way better than the actro,

RealMcCoy,

I suggest that if you burnt up a Tango 45-08 (?) on your 10s (?) razor then your power set-up (gearing, collective pitch) needs to be looked at. I've seen lots of local guys using this motor on 10s razors for very good 3D without any problems. I also have used this motor on my 10s Trex600e for almost 2 years, trouble-free.

Imop this motor is good for up to 2200 watts peak. If you need more, then look at something else.

Cheers,
TomC

Thanks for the response guys. Regarding the Tango I had this setup for over a year with no issues and I decided to bring it out of the hanger to get it back flying and check over everything before I sold it when the motor went out. I put a Scorpion 4025-890 in it geared 14.25:1 and it flew very solid this past weekend. Motor never got any hotter than 150deg. this weekend and batts were around 130 deg. Bert K. flew it very hard non stop for 3 min. and 45 sec. on the last flight of the day and the motor and batteries were right at 150 degrees on a 10S 3300 set of older 25c packs.

Pretty hot on the batteries but I could never fly it that hard and they were fairly small packs for the Razor at 3300mah. My packs are the Flight Power 3700's so all in all it proved to be a good setup.

I am actually selling it on the For Sale Section to fund a 90 size machine.

I hate to sale it cause it is such a true and square flying heli and is loads of fun to fly but I have to make the room for a new heli.

have you considered the A50-12L electric turbine? Not sure about gearing you will need, but they have 550 and 640kv versions. It is used a lot in logo 600's and is rated for 3KW...

Just a thought. I'm actually going to try and put one in an Ion-X, which may be too much helicopter for it... But 3KW in a 600 would be sweet.

I'm using the A40 turbine in my T-Rex600 on 8S and it works just fine. I think the KVs too high for 10S though.

Viva La Airtronics!
