- Made of the finest materials
- Extreme efficiency & power output
- Longest life
- Highest value
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 Zs40 series replace our previous Z40 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 - due to both their increased efficiency and also
construction using the highest-temp-rated magnets and coil wire
The Zs40 come with an extensive hardware package containing:
4.0mm Female gold connectors and shrink tube (to match male plugs
preinstalled on motor wires), prop adapter, Cross-piece with
M4 blind nuts and matching bolts for firewall installation.
Note that the Zs40 series are "backmount only" (a.k.a. radial
mount), as large outrunners cannot be reliably front-mounted in most

- 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 airflow exists.
- 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 a quick touch (or exceeds 80C
measured) you should reduce propeller size or pitch. While the ZS
motors can sustain higher temperatures, a properly setup model should
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. These figures are
not intended to be a hard limit but reflect typical limits in normal models.
If you exceed these, the model must be carefully set up for proper cooling
and well-monitored for over-temp conditions.
- LiPo Range (S): This
indicates the range of LiPo pack "S" typically used with the motors, such as
"5S~8S" for 4035-12. In this case packs higher than 8S generally
should not be used, as it exceeds the target rpm for efficient use of the
motor. The numbers like "(6/8)" indicate that this motor is most often
used with 6S to 8S packs.
- 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 aerobatic
models. 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, ZS4020-14
motor may use the CX VX (35C) 3300 for 3D max power/weight, or CX (25C) 5000
for Duration, but you might also choose something like CX 4000 as an ideal
"middle" choice for your particular model.
- Atlas ESC Suggested -
Hyperion ATLAS 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 you wish.
- Replaces "Z" - Hyperion ARF
model airplanes produced until recently will show recommendations for the
previous "Z" series motors. This shows you the appropriate
substitution for each of the new Zs series motors. Note that the ZS40
series - due to their high efficiency - can often be "one sized down"
compared to a "Z" series motor which was originally recommended. Do
keep in mind that CG should be checked with a weight equal to the Zs motor
you are considering, to be sure that balance can be achieved with the
