G-Force Motors for HK450?
Hello, I'm new to this site as well to Heli's. I'm building my first ever Heli (HK450GT Pro belt). Does anyone have any experience with G-force motors? Looking at the E450-4000Kv...Thanks!

I don't have any experince with this particular motor, but I'm planning on getting the same kind.

Basicly everything on this page. (well just one of the motors)

I'd say the motor will be fine, just be sure to get a couple extra pinion gears so you can make sure to gear it so the motor runs as efficient as possible.

I am getting the 3500kv motor and the 29.99 kit tomorrow-I'll let you know how it preforms. Will be using 11t pinion or whatever the motor comes with

I also planning on reducing my ESC timing to low-aiming for 2500 RPM headspeed.

Thanks guys. I guess I'll just try it, looks like the motor comes with a 13t and my kit has a 13t pinion in it as well. I'll have to just get it built then take it to someone for help because I dont know anything about headspeed...or even fine tuning the set up for that matter. Sure is fun to build though.

4000kv.....
The 4000kv motor will most likely be to much for the 450..... I would suggest that you stay in the 32 to 3500 kv for your 450.... it will keep the hs a bit more sain for you first heli!!!!! Most of the motors supplied with Align, if I am not mistaken are in that 3500 range...
I would also suggest that you go with a bit larger ESC... not the 30amp..
Hobbywing Pentium 40A Brushless ESC with UBEC should do the job a little better for you...

Good Luck.... Stan

Oh and I forgot to tell you...for the servos- you will need to remove the upper frame to install them. No big deal I just wished I knew before I assembled the entire heli then had to take it apart again. Install the servos first.

Be very careful to not strip screws they are crap just like in the align kits. I stripped 2 but there were extra in a screw bag. Follow the SE V2 instructions available from heliproz

Good luck!

Thanks for the tips guys! I wish I would have read them before I made my order tho...I got in a yank an ordered the bigger motor, servo's and such. I'll probably be odering another motor by the sounds but I'll get it together and at least see what it does. I also couldnt wait and put the thing together without electronics...I just couldnt wait! I thought a read somewhere that all I would have to do is loosen the sides of the frame to install the servos but maybee that was for something else. The good news is I knew I would have to do at least that, so I havent messed with any of the forward screws...they still need lock tight. I have read that the screws strip and are junk but I havent had an issue with that, but I did buy an Align hex driver set along with a full set of Align screws so I'm not worried. If I get the thing in the air I know it wont take long for it to come down hard either...Thanks again guys!

Merry Christmas!!

gforce e-450-3500
Yes I tried this motor from Value Hobby.It did not come with mounting bolts. I bought it to replace an alpha 400 on my HK 450gt pro. It started smoking and got extremely hot on 1/4 throttle. it also caused my Hobbywing 40a to get hot. I replaced it with the alpha 400. Any one else have this problem.

Gforce-E450-3500KV Problem solved
After rechecking motor I discovered that the mounting bolts I was using were to long. I reinstalled it on my HK 450 GT Pro using shorter(3mmx6mm) mounting bolts and motor works fine. I can now highly recommend this motor considerably more power than exceed alpha 400.
