Hi Guys,

We make the Chili Pepper motors... and I was sent to this forum by one of our customers who just bought a motor for a Showgun 400. He said quite a few of you guys ran them and like the Chili in your helicopters! I'd love to see some pictures or video of one running in your helicopters!!

If there is some interest... I can do a group buy for you guys on motors! Get a group together and depending on the size we can discount the price accordingly!

If anyone is interested or has some pics shoot me a note!

225W looks damn good! I wonder, does anyone know what the Park400 is? I am guessin' 175W like the himax motors.

One question I have is what temp. are the motors rated to? They will be put to the ultimate punishment in these helis!

Hello Kevin,

The magnet is rated to just above 300 degrees F. But try not to push it that hard... as you know... as temperature goes up efficiency goes down! Also note... that even though the can temp may be say 180 the core temp of the motor could be much higher!

What kind of amps are you pulling?? The motors max efficency is between 12 and 15 amps... We run them in planes up to the low 20's! Much higher and it wont take long to heat em up real hot!! haha

Happy flying!
Donnie

Thanks Donnie,

The 300 deg. should work for us. I don't know if you airplane guys use heat sinks, but we pretty much have to use them. I am very interested in trying one of your motors! For one, it's made in the U.S.A. baby! Plus I think I know enough about elec. motors to say the higher watts is going to mean more power right?

I am running a Park400 right now and really don't have any problems with it, but if I can get some ponies then why not!

Donnie, I am not sure what max. amp draw we get with Shoguns, but maybe one of these smarter guys might know!

Later Donnie,
Kev

Hey Kevin,

Sounds good...

Yes, higher watts means more ponies! LOL

As for the heat sinks... We are experimenting with the idea of going to a can with a built in heat sink. Can you guys provide me with information on can sizes... will it affect you if he can is slightly larger then 20mm in diameter? What would be the max? Would you even want a motor with a built in heat sink?

Your comments are appreciated!
Thanks!
Donnie

Donnie,

Having the heat sink built in would be more efficient. You can look in my gallery to see what the heat sinks look like that we are running. I don't have my heli with me to measure size for sure, but the fins are about 5mm deep or about 1/4". So based on that I wouldn't make them larger than 30mm in diameter.
