These motors are great but i installed these in my Blade nQX and its flying very short. I have 200mAh/35C batterys and its hitting the LVC after 30 seconds of flying. With the stock battery (150mAh/25C) it doesn't even spin the motors. Are the ESC's of the nQX board too bad for these motors? Or are the batterys the problem?

I hope you can help me!

Hey Simon,

you have installed 7mm motors into you nQX? How did you do that? They will not fit the stock frame.

200mah batteries are not enough for the 7mm motors.
I recommend 300mah nano-tech batteries from Hobbyking for the 0720 motors.

But the nQX board will have difficulties dealing with these powerful motors.
Its not the power consumption itself, but the throttle curve. Once you powered the motors with a good battery, you will notice that the lowest possible throttle position is above hover throttle. Its like riding a bull ;)

For the nQX, you should look at our 0615 motors:

I've had these motors for a few weeks now and taken them on many flights and I am very impressed with them.
Installed them on my Hubsan X4. With the original motors, the x4 struggled to lift an 808 keychain camera and as a result I damaged a motor and the camera during a crash. I replaced all of the original motors with the CL-0720's and there was a noticeable difference in speed and maneuverability, so I tried flying with the camera again and it goes great! You have to throttle up almost full still, but it won't fall when you try to bring it down slowly, and the motors get quite hot, but that is to be expected.

To put it simply, More power = more fun.

I had trouble putting the x4 props on these, they were a bit tight. I installed the props on the original motors first to stretch the holes in them, and then installed them on the CL's and it was fine.

Ordeded a ten pack of these for my Hubsan X4. Big improvement in power and flight times. Shippin time-EXCELLENT!
Waiting for the flight controller to be back in stock so I can order a few of them as well.

I put them on my Black Stag Beetle... Brilliant!!!

These are a perfect stock fit for the Syma X1. Great motors with lots of power. Breathes new life into the Syma X1 and makes flying in windy conditions much easier. These in conjunction with upgraded batteries and my Turnigy 9x transmitter make it fly like a whole new quad.

Using this motor in a Nine Eagles Galaxy visitor 2 (same quad as the Heli-Max 1Si)
I am sure you will never go back to the original motors if you used this little devil.
To get more flying time I would recommend a bigger battery, lifting more weight is no problem.
(the original charger will support up to 500 mah)

I modified my Hubsan X4 by putting it in an X-Dart body. It looked nice but wasn't anything special. I changed the motors for these bad boys.

Now it flies like a Rolls Royce. Great motors!

habe diese Motoren in meinen Nine Eagles Galaxy Visitor 2 eingebaut da mir die originalen Motoren zu schwach waren, jetzt mit diesen Tuningmotoren ist der GV2 endlich ordentlich motorisiert, ich kann diese Motoren nur empfehlen.
MM from Victoria, Australia on Apr 13, 2014
These are nice motors. I’ve installed 4 of them into a 3d printed quad:
- Flexbot (modified from here: chassis
- Propellors from a Hubsan X4
- Receiver/flight controller salvaged from a crashed WLToys V252
Total weight is 28.9 grams without battery. With a well-worn Skyartec 240mAh battery, it weighs 36.7 grams and gives 5:25 of moderately aggressive flying. With a used generic (blue) 380mAh battery from, it weighs 39.0 grams, and provides 6:45 to 7:00 minutes of fast backyard laps. This setup provides more punch and power than the stock WLToys V252, despite carrying a few extra grams of weight, so I’m very pleased.

I carefully tested these motors before soldering, having read MM from UK’s comment about polarity on the black and white (CCW) ones, and found that white is positive and black is negative, as advertised above.

On first installation, I thought I’d mounted the wrong props, as the quad wouldn’t launch straight up and kept trying to flip. No amount of calibrating helped. But after a minute of running, it gradually improved. It then seemed to become more responsive and faster over the following few flights. Perhaps the motors needed burning in? Or perhaps I just took a while to get used to the new toy.
MM from UK on Apr 07, 2014
Got the motors in a reasonable time after ordering. However, the info on the site regarding the polarity of white and black wires for the counter clockwise rotation is wrong. For a CCW rotation, the wires need to be connected opposite to what's advised, The correct connection is white - and black +.

(I had to desolder my motors to correct the above...)
