Tarot Multirotor Frames

Tarot make excellent multirotor frames, but they also manufacture well engineered motors to match. The 5008 340KV is a high-powered, super efficient 6S (22.2V) motor, specially designed for heavy lifting multirotors (5 to 10 kg). It lends itself to the X-Series Tarot frames, but equally to any heavy lifting hex or octocopter. Matched with a 18x5.5 propeller, it can produce over 3kg of thrust at full throttle. For a hexacopter that equates to in excess of 18kg of lift, which is more than enough to lift a large DSLR. It's efficient too; pulling 1kg on 6S it only draws 3.8amps, an efficiency of over 11g/W.

The motor utilises quality components such as a neodymium iron boron rotor, a high-precision CNC machined shell and large high-speed precision bearings. The motor features a high pole count for smooth and responsive power, and a turbofan cover, which provides excellent heat dissipation. Every motor is tested for concentricity and balanced for smooth running. The end result is a super efficient, vibration free, high performance motor.

The 5008 can be matched with 15" to 18" propellers and we recommend using a 40A ESC like the Hobbywing Pro. We sell compatible quick release prop adapters for the 5008, please see 'Related Products' below.

No issues running that motor on 6S (50AMP ESCs), it's designed for 6S input.

Hi. What would you suggest is the minimum C rating for a 6S lipo to run these motors?



By william on

Hi, the capacity of the battery is also important as that determines the max current draw along with the C rating. Max Current Draw = Capacity x C-Rating. For example if you had a 8000mAh battery with 15C current rating, you would have a constant 120Amp available. For large multirotors which use these motors 15C / 30C burst is usally okay.
