APS 70160 Inrunner brushless motor 4800W E-foil

Anyone noticed that one?

Looks like this one:


Specs APS say 70-120

Original Thread:

Not a bad price though…

They mention “Waterproof” … :crossed_fingers:

The strangest part about this motor is how do they expect it to be connected to a mast mount. Are you meant to remove the grub screws and replace then or just clamp it tight…

Maybe hotglue? Good for everything :joy:

Just tried this motor from Alien, but cannot make it works properly…
I tried with 12S and 16S, with flier 400amp, outside water it works well and turns fast…but in the water it is slower than my grandmother…i can grab the board with one hand with the full throtlle…no Torque at all…i do not understand. Maybe It needs 20S or 22S at least…

No amp no torque , try settings in the esc : maybe start power 40-60…

That prop is WAY too much pitch. Even my 80100 which has more torque than this motor could barely work with it. Go with a Yamaha 6” pitch alu boat prop or 3Dprint a 120-150mm prop and see how that goes.

thx Alex, i will try…

I use this prop for my 80100, 80kv and it works well…i will check if i have a 6"…thx !

I have tried startup power 60% and 100% but still the same…

Ok same, with smaller prop…i have discussed with Bruno (nice person!) and it looks that this motor needs more voltage to deliver necessary torque…
If someone is interested i sell it
