The new Hyperion Zs motor series cost more than "budget" brands, but provide much more value in the short run - and over the years. Simply put, everything inside
and out is the very best obtainable. Japanese 0.2mm stator steel and NMB bearings, 200C magnets and coil wire (hand-wound), and precision all-CNC construction; All these lay the foundation on which two years of intensive design and testing
have delivered the highest efficiency motors ever produced. And stringent ISO 9001 Quality Control
- plus extra care such as magnet temperature batch testing - insure your maximum satisfaction,
both present and future.
The Zs22 series replace our previous Z22 series airplane motors. While the
Z series remain fine motors and still compete with every other high-quality brand in
the market, the new Zs simply blow away the competition on performance. On
average, when the a Zs motor is configured to turn the same prop at the same rpm as
the "Z", it will consume 13% to 18% less power from the battery, due to large
gains in efficiency. This allows you to use a smaller-capacity Hyperion G3
LiPo pack to achieve the lowest possible flying weight. Or you can fly much
longer on the same size pack and have that pack last longer, due to reduced
stress on the battery! Alternatively, you may choose to "push" the Zs series
motors much harder, as they can handle more power without overheating.
Zs22 motors are drop-in replacements for the previous Z22, which were recommended for many
of our Hyperion ARF models. In addition, the Zs22 come with an
extensive hardware package containing everything needed to either front or
back mount the motor - including a prop adapter with 5mm shaft - so there are
no extra costs.

- Typical Current (A) - These indicate the usual range of amperage
for the typical model in which the motor is used. This range will
provide very high average efficiency, and should be safe under a wide range of
conditions (summer/winter) and model setups assuming adequate cooling
- Max Current (A) - These specs are for general guidance only and
for <10 seconds continuous. Conditions particular to your situation -
such as ambient temperature, number of cells (S) in series, airflow
available to the motor, etc... - can have a profound impact on the max
current you are able to safely draw from the motor. You may be able to
safely exceed these specs, or not, depending on those factors. It is YOUR responsibility to check
motor temperature after 10 seconds runtime and again after a short flight.
If the motor feels very uncomfortable to the touch (or exceeds 80C measured)
you should reduce propeller size or pitch. While the ZS motors can
sustain higher temperatures, a properly setup model can usually obtain
tremendous performance without exceeding 80C. We strongly recommend
use of the
Hyperion Emeter II,
which measures voltage, amperage, watts,
temperatures, rpm and more. This empowers you to optimize your
power system performance, and insure that it will stay reliable.
- Max Power (Watts): The same cautions as above with Max
Current apply. Check temperatures to determine proper combination of
battery and propeller.
- G3 Lipo Light/Duration - We hope you'll use
Hyperion Generation 3 (G3) Lithium Polymer packs to power your Zs
motors. They provide the highest possible performance, long life, and
can be charged in as few as 10 minutes. The "light" suggestions suit
models which need the lowest possible flying weight, such as 3D aerobats.
The "Duration" picks allow longer flights, or multiple flights per charge,
and are common for the average sport model. Note that "in-between"
sizes may give an ideal blend. For example, Zs2213 motors may use the
recommended VX (35C) 1100 for 3D or CX (25C) 2100 for duration, but you
could also choose either VX or CX 1600 for a "middle" pick.
- Atlas ESC Suggested -
series speed controllers will be available worldwide by June 1st 2009.
They feature the best of hardware components for lowest internal resistance
and high efficiency - as well as new firmware with extremely sophisticated
motor drivers for best performance. Suggested ESC are typical for each
motor, but you may choose a higher-rated ESC (i.e. 35A rather than 25A) as

recently will show recommendations for the previous "Z" series motors.
