Re: Himaxx Counter Rotating Motor

Hey guys,

Oh how time flies. I have flown this motor a few times but have had trouble getting props for it. It is in an 85" yak 54 from aeroworks. I hope to have this model at the arizona electric festival. I did not report enough info on this product as I should have, so I will try and get some more information for everyone.

Re: Himaxx Counter Rotating Motor

To answer the above questions, there are two motors here, running opposite directions. They each have their own speed control, but both run off the same power. The rear prop mounts on the front of the front motor, and the front prop mounts on a prop adapter on the rear motor. There is a shaft that runs from the rear motor to the front of the system to transmit power.

"Bad Ass" just doesn't even get close to describing that set up.

I hear it screaming for a military airframe though!
What cc power is it equal to in petrol?
Screw it- about how much $$ ?
