Weight (as shown in photo): 67 grams
KV: 4000-4200 rpm/volt
ESC Timing: Low for FlyFun Series ESCs (higher timing does not increase RPM only amp draw)
This is a special wind of the Wicked EDF motor that is about 4000 KV and is a good replacement for the stock motors that comes in many of the ARF and RTF 64mm EDF models which are very popular these days. This motor can be flown on either 3S or 4S in the 64mm fan units. 3S in the 64mm fans will be similar to the stock power, but will really come alive on 4S (note: 4S operation will require a 40 amp ESC so make sure your ESC is big enough as the stock ESC in many 64mm ARFs is only 30 amp). This is also a popular replacement for the discontinued Jetscreamer motor.

The use of the Wicked EDF motor in other EDF fan units or with higher cell count lipos than listed above may burn out your motor, ESC and puff your lipo. Please email DonsRC with any questions on setups not listed.
Please note the motor options when ordering below:
Motor only with 2.3mm shaft: For drop in mounting into the SF fan. Excellent motor for the Hobby Lobby Executive Jet and Soarstar EDF. Do not exceed 370 watts with no standoff adapter.
Motor with standoff adapter and EDO rotor plug: For use in the 64mm EDO 5 blade fans units as in the Hobby Lobby F-18, Mirage, and Raidentech F-15 jets. The 5 blade rotor in these planes presses directly onto the included rotor adapter!
Motor with standoff adapter and Alfa rotor plug: For use with the Alfa line of EDF jet models. Strong 4S performance.
Motor with standoff adapter and no rotor plug : 3mm shaft output, as used in my Electrifly L-39 video. Fits Hyperfow , XF, Haoye, Wemotec Micro, and Airfield AF64mm fans.
WARNING: Do not use any Wicked EDF motors with Electrifly or Suppo brushless ESCs, they can not handle the the high rpm of a 6 pole outrunner and will fry the ESC and motor. The Hobbywing FlyFun brand of ESCs are the only recommended ESC for all Wicked EDF motors, set timing to "low". If using any other brand please contact the ESC manufacturer to get the rpm limitation of the ESC with a 6 pole outrunner motor. If you are unsure of the ESC you have then please email DonsRC before you try as DonsRC can not be held responsible for burned out motors which are damaged due to lower quality brushless ESCs.
DO NOT SHORTEN THE THREE MOTOR WIRES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Shortening the motors wires will VOID any warranty and DonsRC will not service any motors or be held responsible for any collateral damage to ESCs, fan units, lipos, planes, etc when motor leads have been shortened. In other words don't do it!
NOTE: The use of bullet connector on the motor leads is NOT recommended. Direct solder the motor leads to the ESC leads with 1/4" overlap. Bullet connectors can cause issues that can lead to ESC failure and or motor failure. Use bullet connectors at your own risk.
