Perfect match for 3D park flyers weighing 20–30 oz (565–850 g)
Ideal for scale park flyers 25–35 oz (710–990 g)
Ideal for models requiring up to 275 watts of power
High-torque, direct-drive alternative to inrunner brushless motors
Includes mount, prop adapters, and mounting hardware
External rotor design—4mm shaft can easily be reversed for alternative motor installations
Slotted 14-pole outrunner design
High-quality construction with ball bearings and hardened steel shaft
Quiet, lightweight operation
Needed To Complete
- 25A–40A brushless ESC - 2S–3S Li-Po or 6- to 10-cell Ni-MH/Ni-Cd - 10x7–12x6 propeller
The Park 480 Brushless Outrunner motor is designed to deliver clean and quiet power for 3D park flyers weighing 20 to 30 ounces (565 to 850 grams), scale park flyers weighing 25 to 35 ounces (710 to 990 grams), or models requiring up to 275 watts of power. It’s an especially good match for E-flite's Mini Edge 3D ARF (EFL2225) and Mini Funtana 3D ARF (EFL2075), and it would provide extreme power for sport park flyers such as the Mini Ultra Stick ARF (EFL2250).
Specifically this 1020Kv option can handle more current than the 920Kv version, so it is more efficient when matched with the Thunder Power Pro-Lite cells.
Review by Scratch B. on 20 Dec 2017review stating Excellent motor for my ~900g Scratch Build
Sweet motor! On a 30A ESC I had to cut the throttle axis down to top out at 70%, so as to not exceed amperage of my ESC. I'm running a 10x7 apc sport prop. Powers my plane no problem, and I get a good 10 minutes flight time on a 2200mah 3s. I don't have a way to clock speed but man the plane is zippy with this motor. I didn't expect this since I am limited to 30A, and my plane is heavier than recommended, but wow, this thing still pulls my plane up to ~35mph. Really great motor!

Review by Daytona6000 on 24 Jan 2018review stating Put this motor in the Parkzone Sport Cub
I put this motor in my Parkzone Sport Cub for better performance and run Parkzone's T-28 prop (PKZ1012) on it. You will have to play with the motor mount a bit or create one out of plywood (not a big deal) since it's not a direct drop in replacement for the 480 motor that comes with the plane.

Review by Chris92 on 15 Nov 2015review stating Value Confirmed
I had a slick 480 that had a no name 480 motor that cost $25 and it flew good. I crashed the plane, bought another one and decided to try the "expensive" eflite power 480 in this one. I was skeptical because this motor is physically smaller and lighter than the no name. I was very surprised at the performance. Same plane,battery and 12x6 apc prop and this thing has much more vertical than the other, very very surprised. For $50 compared to the $25 no name there IS a noticeable gain in performance. Worth the extra money.
