New huge multicopter motors from Hobby King

Hobby King has come out with 2 new multicopter motors in the 9014(!) size. One is 105kV, the other 135kV. With 385g, they are surely on the heavy side, but they are designed for 6S with a max current of 40A. According to the description, they were made for 26" props.

Surely nothing for your everyday sport quad, but now there's finally motors available which would allow building really big quads (MD4-1000 class and bigger) with reasonable air times.

75KV, 12-14S battery, weights 5200g, with a 250A max draw... recommended prop is a 40x15

That would be the right motor for my two-seater manned quadcopter dream project :D.

Holy moly, that's big.  I thought my 4250-350kv motor was big.

These would be interesting for a gear-less helicopter.

What is wattage output of the high efficiency gas powered turbine generator one can get?  hummmm. :)

Propellers are hard to find for these, there are wood ones, but they would need a prop adapter.

And the 12 1/2 horsepower motor from RCTiger could power an ultralight.

Four of them could probably power a 1 man quadcopter although you'd probably need to run it from an extension cord.

Hmm great idea for a carnival ride - - well maybe not.

that would be one seriously thick extension cord.. especially since the cables going to that tiger motor already look like garden hoses..  lets see.. where can I find a 250A per motor extension cord :)

I saw this on product's comments section

@Lanmark: I used to work with a ROV and there was 320volt DC in the cable from the remote to the ROV. Then a voltage divider in the ROV down to 24 volt for loads. 320volt don't require a thick cord.
