My first scratch built (greetings from Cabo)


Junior Member
I´m requesting a bit of your knowledge folks, need help on my first scratch biult.

Can I use this lipo battery (Turnigy 1.6 1600mah 11.1v 3 cell) to power this motor
(Turnigy D2826-6 2200kv Outrunner Motor) and can this motor work with (Hobbyking
SS Series 35-40A ESC), I´d really appreciate your help ...


Amateur Extra Class K5TWM
6X4 should normally be appropriate for 2200KV but look at the specs from the HK page on that motor

Rpm/V: 2200kv
Shaft: 3.17mm
Voltage: 2S~3S (7.4v to 11.1v)
Weight: 50g
Watts: 342w
Max Current: 34A
ESC: 40A
Suggested Prop: 7x4(2S) ~ 5x5 (3S)

Notice that the recommended prop for a 3S battery is 5X5, a 6X4 prop will probably be OK also if not run full throttle for long periods of time. Your ESC should be fine.
