Found 6 of these in a shed  clearout..  they are HOBBYKING  contra rotating types  (push and pull) ....
.Max power: 17A*2=34A
Max power: 375W
KV: 1050rpm/v
Prop:10*4  or  10*5
11V 10.5A*2 Thrust:1320g/46.56oz
ESC Required: Two 25A

Wonder if they would go on a Quad.  No reason not to.. seeing as some Quads have a motor above and below the arm.
Trouble is they require two ESC';s each but I have seen somewhere how they can be operated by one ESC.
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.


I bet they would work on a multirotor - something like a Y6 or similar;

Although how well they';d work depends on how smoothly they run - how rattle and vibration free are they and whether the shafts are prone to bending after a crash.

Might be an interesting project if you want to do a bit of experimenting.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.


Could be interesting.  Wish I could remember where I saw the  ref to using one esc per unit....
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.


They look good Ross I would build a quad for them if you have 4  ~~ I doubt that you could reliably run them of one esc though because the motors are controlled with feed back levels or something like that and each motor would need its own esc  ~~
