Thrust 50 Brushless Outrunner 500kv
The Thrust® 50 incorporates a new curved Rotokool® impeller design which is extremely complex to produce. We have gone the extra mile to incorporate this feature for the larger Thrust® motors (Thrust® 40, and 50) in order to further increase the cooling efficiency so as to handle larger props and smaller capacity lipo packs. The Thrust® 50 combined with the Quantum 70 ESC is extremely efficient and capable to produce tremendous thrust and high speed while drawing very low amps out of your packs! This means smaller battery capacities (lower cost and lightweight) can be used with excellent flight duration.
This makes the power setup one of the most economical and practical approaches for driving larger models and one of the best motors for .40-.60 size electric aircraft conversions!

NOTE: APC 15×7 and 15×8 are NOT recommended for any of the PA planes as they generate a lot of vibrations being out of balance and will draw much higher amps compared to the Vox props at the same sizes being less efficient. The APC props might suite much heavier models that requires the extra thrust. Make sure your motorbox can handle them before using them as they can easily lead to motorbox failures due to the tremendous thrust.
We recommend getting a few different size propellers with your Thrust® 50 motor. Swapping a propeller is an easy task so you may want to experiment and feel the difference to fit different style of flying. Also in a hot summer day you may want to use a smaller propeller while in a cooler day you can run the motor with a larger propeller.
