The new KDE Direct 13218XF-120 (HE) Multi-Rotor Brushless Motor is an aerospace-level flagship of technology from KDE Direct - designed specifically for heavy-lift commercial and industrial applications. With an all-new bearing design (triple-supported, ABEC-7 angular-contact and radial bearings) specific for high-thrust capacity and market-leading durability, the motors encompass the premier of UAS technology. The motor incorporates a very high-efficiency (HE) 42-pole design, used in our industrial applications, and now brought to the UAS market for long-duration flight performance. The motors are designed with performance and durability in-mind, with features unseen in the current market: (1) high-grade, 240°C continuous (340°C maximum) high-temperature solid-core copper windings for failure-free operation in extreme-climates, (2) Japanese-built, 0.2 mm silicon-steel stator laminations and Kevlar tie-wraps for high-efficiency performance, and (3) integrated centrifugal-fan for cool running temperatures and high-performance capacity. These are just a few of the advantages built-in to these motors, and every detail of the motors was scrutinized to produce the absolute best available; for a wide-range of flight applications.
Motor includes 200°C, 13 AWG, 760mm silicone-wire leads and ф4.0mm 24K Bullet Connectors (KDEXF-BC40, pre-soldered to the motor leads and ESC matching Bullet Connectors).UAS Multi-Rotor Brushless Motor Series Technology Review (PDF)

*: Brushless motor requires consistent open airflow (5 mph or greater) across the windings to maintain maximum continuous current and power ratings during operation. Performance figures are provided as guidelines for normal conditions and operation; environmental factors, such as air temperature and humidity, can significantly alter the maximum performance limits of the motor.
