Worth a try Review by Richard

I got one of these just to try it on my Crack Turbo Beaver. Even though my Beaver is grossly over weight (don't know the exact weight) it had plenty of power to hover with no problem with a 3s 8x4.3 setup. The only downside is that this motor is about 10 grams heavier than the recommended motor. (Posted on 6/25/2016)
I love these little red motors! I use them as purchased, or rewind them to my liking Review by Joe
Overall

I have quite a few of these, some I use as purchased, but most I rewind to my specs.
I notice that some complain about bent shafts..I have yet to bend one. The problem can be highly minimized by cutting the shaft. Mounting the prop adapter on the long shaft gives it too much leverage. Shaft should be cut just long enough for the prop adapter. Use only as much shaft as required..whether using a prop adapter or prop saver.
Another mod I do is I drill two extra holes for grub screws and tap them to 6-32. Sometimes I re-tap the existing grub screw holes to 6-32 also. It's much easier for me to find 6-32 tap and drill sets and 6-32 set screws than metric. Boxes of 50 set screws for less than $6. I still use Loctite on the screws. Of course, if you already have a metric tap and drill set to match exiting holes then just drill and tap two extra holes.
Another benefit is that not as much force is required on the grub screws and reduces the possibility of distorting the bearing tube. (Posted on 2/9/2016)

I use this motor on my Iowa R/C Combat Foamie. We have a big group in Madison, WI flying combat using this motor. Only downside is motor shaft is a bit too easy to bend. 8x4 APC style prop, 20A ESC and 3S 1300mAH battery is great combination. (Posted on 1/18/2015)

The price is def right for this outrunner! Mounting it is a bit tricky, but it has plenty of power! Order extras because the inset hex head screws that set the motor to the mount strip out easily. (Posted on 3/16/2014)

Perfect for the new EPP Edge for all the 3D you need. (Posted on 11/9/2013)

Super little motor Review by Benjamin

I put this motor in my P51 Mustang with the skywalker 20a ESC and 3s 1300mah 30c gforce batteries. They all work great together. I found with this setup 8x6e props pull 12.62a and 147w, APC 9x6e-14.77a 170w. They have plenty power to swing my favorite props. Plus they are cheap enough to purchase a brand new one if something goes wrong.

The shafts bend like any motor, and replacement shafts are cheap enough. I will recommend to Locktite the grub screws holding the motor on the mount.

My motor now has a "click" to it, and Im not sure why. I might run it until it dies, then buy a new one, at that price I can't afford to say no. (Posted on 4/4/2013)

Just use a little loctite on grub screws and you will have no problem with this motor. Cant beat the price for the power it puts out. (Posted on 3/21/2013)

Great motor Review by Tim

Overall
Great low speed motor, especially for the price. I've been using a 9x4.7 slow fly prop with a 3s batter and 20a esc, and the motor has never even been warm. provides enough thrust to hover most of my "swappable series" scratchbuilt airplanes. Seems very durable too...many, many flights on it, a couple of nose first crashes, and I've not had one problem with it.

One concern...the motor attaches to it's mount using a small set screw. Make sure to locktite that in place, or it will work loose. I have not had a problem with mine yet, but I know plenty of people have. A little red loctite, and don't give it a second thought. (Posted on 1/31/2013)

The Emax CF2822 is a pretty good motor. I am currently running them on a tricopter. I don't really like the way the base mounts to the motor. I had a base come loose on my first flight and trash one of the motors. After that I put loctite on the screws that hold the base to the motor. Overall not bad for the price. (Posted on 12/6/2012)

Rarely am I impressed any more. I have to say, Value Hobby has been great to work with. really fast, cheap shipping and low prices matter theese days, and they have both. This little motor is wonderful. I have two of these one on an E starter I stuck together to help my daughter learn on and the other on a foamy 3D plane I designed. Both are around a pound and have 1000 mah bats and 18 amp speed controls with 9-3.8 props and guese what? BOTH HOVER! the guys at the field ask all time if ever have land. you will be surprised at your flight times. I was shocked to get the quality I did for under eight bucks! (Posted on 9/8/2012)
