EMAX CF2822 Outrunner Brushless Motor
The EMAX CF2822 is a 1.4 ounce, 1300 KV, direct drive outrunner brushless motor that works well on a wide variety of models weighing up to 30 ounces. It will produce about 24 ounces of thrust using a 3 cell Lipo battery and the GWS 8040 prop.
I've been using this motor on a GWS Zero, and it's an excellent choice for this light foam model. The CF2822 easily takes the Zero straight up using a 11.1v 1300 20C Lipo battery and the GWS 8040 prop. For extreme speed, I use the GWS HD8060 prop, and the little Zero really whips by on a low level pass!
I recommend using the ZTW 20A ESC with the CF2822.
To mount a prop, you will need a 3mm Prop Adapter, or 3mm Prop Saver.
MOUNTING OPTIONS: A firewall mount is included, and an Aluminum Stick Mount (for models with 11mm sticks) is available in our store. Always check the tightness of all motor set screws and motor mount screws when installing motors. The set screws require a 1.5mm Allen wrench. The picture below is for reference only. NO STICK MOUNT IS INCLUDED.
Recommended props when using 3 cell Lipo batteries:
The GWS EP9050 produces 30 ounces of thrust at 17 amps. Use with caution
The GWS EP8040 produces about 24 ounces of thrust at 12 amps. Best all around prop for this motor.
The TP 8x4E produces 25 ounces of thrust at 14 amps.
The GWS HD8060 produces 22 ounces of thrust at 17 amps. Use with caution
The GWS EP7035 produces 15 ounces of thrust at 7 amps.
The TP 7x6E produces 19 ounces of thrust at 12 amps.
Recommended props when using 2 cell Lipo batteries:
The GWS EP1170 prop produces about 21 ounces of thrust at 15 amps
The GWS EP1060 prop produces about 18 ounces of thrust at 12 amps.
The GWS EP1047 prop produces about 19 ounces of thrust at 13 amps.
The GWS EP9050 prop produces about 16 ounces of thrust at 10 amps.
The GWS EP8040 prop produces about 12 ounces of thrust at 6.5 amps.
The above data is a result of our own testing using fully charged Lipo batteries.
