Review by: Graham LorimerDYS 2225 In F5RES Glider
My search for a suitable Motor / Prop / Battery combination to convert a F3RES Magic 2 into an F5RES example, has not been simple.
After several false starts, this DYS D2225-13 32g 2000 RPM/V has proven to be a great choice. With a diameter of just 22mm it fits in the nose of the fuselage, (just), and runs very smoothly.
Fitted with a 7” x 4” folding prop and power being supplied by a GNB 300 3S 80C HV Lipo, it can pull the 465 gram Magic 2 up to 60 meters in 15 seconds, and I can comfortably get 4 launches on one charge, an additional test was finding that the battery only needed 64 mah after 1 launch and a 15 minute flight.
The motor output measured at 140 Watts and is drawing 11.3 Amps. I did find when trying several batteries, a 350 mah 3S 25C battery was not man enough for the job, with significant power drop off after 6 – 8 seconds.
The temperature seems very manageable, I had 22 launches today with zero problems, so looking forward to a lot more use from this combination.
