T40 Power System - Thrust 40/Quantum 45A/Prop Adapter
This T40 Power system is a complete power solution for your Precision Aerobatics model requiring up to 500 Watts of power with a 3-cell LiPo and 12 to 13" diameter propeller. See below for detailed info on proper propeller selection.
The Thrust® 40 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. This makes the power setup one of the most economical and practical approaches for driving larger models.
Outside Diameter: 37.2mm
Weight: 140gr / 4.94oz
Motor Shaft Dia.: 5.0mm
Mounting Bolts Dia.: M3
Max efficiency Current A*: 35 A
Peak current A (15 sec)*: 45 A
Battery pack range**: 2~4 LiPo / 5-12 NiCd
KV rpm/V: 850kv
Peak Watts: 500 watts
* Unrestricted airflow and air scoops are mandatory to ensure long service life and long term performance consistency. Extended Continuous Operation without the required cooling provisions may be detrimental to the coils and magnets and will void warranty.
** PA 3cells (11.1V) 2200mAh V2 pack is recommended. With 4 cells pack the chosen propeller must fit within the motor's limits (current drawn).
Precision Aerobatics recommends having a few different size propellers with your Thrust® 40 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.
The PA Quantum is a performance enhanced Brushless Electronic Speed Controller specifically designed to seamlessly match Thrust motors.
The ESC comes pre programmed for the Thrust motors so it’s only a matter of plug-and-play. The Quantum ESC is only geared for one thing: to allow you to execute the most challenging maneuvers with ABSOLUTE confidence in your drive system.
With ease of use in mind, the PA Quantum includes ONLY features that you NEED for performance, minimizing the hassle of lengthy and confusing programming steps. This means less time spent on the ground going through lengthy and frustrating programming features that you do not use.
- High output BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit)
- Fully programmable Microprocessor Controlled
- User friendly human interface for easy, hassle free and quick programming
- Exceptionally low resistance for excellent efficiency and cool operation
- High Rate switching with High RPM Brushless motor support
- Rugged surface mounted industry grade components for added reliability and crash durability
- Lipo, NimH, NiCad battery pack under-voltage protection to safeguard premature deterioration and pack damage.
The PA Quantum 30 & 40 BEC has 4 power regulator chips (Quantum 18 has 3). The 4 power regulator chips support the high torque micro servos in the most demanding load-conditions imposed during aggressive 3D and freestyle aerobatics, providing bulletproof reliability. This form of flying is when servos actuating oversized control surfaces may momentarily stall under extreme aerodynamic loads that would cause most low and medium power BECs to overheat and shutdown resulting in catastrophic loss of control.
The PA Quantum ESC’s high power BEC has been specifically designed for extreme aerobatics and therefore has the capability to support the higher momentary peak demand loads to eliminate the possibility of unwanted shutdowns. This high power BEC is also capable of supporting continuous simultaneous multiple servo operations typically found in CCPM equipped hardcore 3D E-helicopters. This is especially important when using a 2.4GHz receiver.
The PCB board of the Quantum ESCs is considerably larger, to accommodate the 4 BEC chips as well as a larger heat sink for better cooling. Although it is larger in size, the PA Quantum ESC is still lightweight in comparison to smaller ESCs available on the market.
CNC machined propeller adapter
It may seem like a minor component installed in your high performance aircraft. However we find it extremely important since the prop adapter affect the final thrust and performance of your motor. Most prop adapters on the market are off center creating excessive variations which lead to glue joint in motor-box to come loose. In high end RPM they cause the motor excessive heat thus reduce efficiently and power.
The adapter is CAD designed by Precision Aerobatics and is made in Germany.
Note: this pacakge include 5mm prop adapter, which is matches the Addiction X or ultimate AMR. It does not match the Bandit as the Bandit requries a longer 5mm adapter due to the cowling shape.
