The AXi 4120/18 has now been replaced by the AXi 4120/18 v2.
The AXi 4120/18 Gold Line brushless motor is suitable for large sailplanes weighing up to 4500g (158.7 oz) and sports aerobatic models up to 3500g (123.5 oz).
This particular motor is suitable for vintage, slow flying and trainer type model aircraft up to 3800g (134 oz) but would also suit a senior Telemaster on a 5s LiPo battery. The advantage of being an outrunner provides the ability to spin a large propeller without a gearbox, making this motor particularly suitable for flying scale models.
These brushless motors with neodymium magnets and a rotating case are manufactured using the latest technology from the finest quality materials. The hardened steel shaft supported by three ball bearings, and overall robust yet lightweight construction, ensure a long service life.
AXi motors are designed such that the propeller is mounted on the shaft, but a radial mount set is available as an option, to allow the motor to be mounted directly onto the firewall. This optional radial mount set includes: mounting flange, propeller adaptor, a securing collar and screws and is usually the preferred route for glow conversions.

I am using the AXI 4120/18 to power a World Models 1/5th scale clipped wing piper cub.
My setup is:
- 5s lipo
- JETI SPIN 66
- 14x7 APC Thin Electric
I could add an extra cell or go up slightly in prop diameter, but the level of power is just right on this setup. Not vertical, but enough power spare to help in those bad spots!
