Ciao a tutti! , Who can tell me if it is possible to connect 4 of these mini motors on one ESC 12/15 A, then handle the rotation speed of a single esc, and how can I connect? Thank you for your cooperation! nik
Does the Edge 540 and Telemicro come with this motor or the NTM. My planes look like they have this motor, but the descriptions for the planes here say its the NTM 13-12 3000? Which motor is better this or the NTM? Thanks
At Joy: If You are looking for a 1S setp, take the 1S3A from here but flash it with better/faster firmware , Marcal is absolutly right on 2S, iy You`re going to build your own frame try dylans (astroid-designs.myshopify) motor plates and search for him at helifreak. The AP05 is from my view the best micro motor ever in this price range.
The suggested prop for this is a 5030, HK sells a set of 3xCW and 3xCCW 5030 props (red or black), add to this the new micro integrated pcb with 4 esc's quadcopter frame, a KK2.0 and i think you have a great combo, less than 200g of weigth with a 1000mA 2s LiPo and receiver.
No just solder all 3 wires to the 3 wires on the ESC (separately). Next power everything on, advance the throttle and see if the prop is spinning in the right direction. If it spins in the wrong direction, switch the 2 outer wires (from ESC) and try again.
you can also usually program direction on the ESC if soldering is too much of a pain for you. Or you can solder servo connectors (get some servo extension wires) and then if your motor runs backwards, you can just flip the connector.
I'm trying to convert a art tech 600 mm glider to rc.would this be a good motor to use?.what would be the excellent power system?I need a powers system that DOSENT complete over powers it.lastly how do I use it with an esc,what esc would I use?
Depends on how much the glider weighs. i like to have at least a 1:1 thrust to weight ratio with these gliders for a quick high climb. If your glider weighs around 100g this would work fine. A good ESC would be one that is at least 5A. So the plush 6A (on HK) would work well. (note that you will need a 2S battery and the 5030 prop to generate the 110g of thrust. Good luck!
Hello SBCOFIRE .i have two and what i did was soldering any motor cable to any of the ESC 3 cables,and after bind RX and plug battery try without soldering,the rotation of the motor,becareful not with prop try clear tape on motor shaft ,after find out the right motor rotation, just soldering the rest of the 2 cables..the 3 cables in any brushlass motors don't have polarity so don't worry..remmember use shrink tube
Just solder the motor wires to the ESC's output 3 wires (doesn't matter which is which, if motor is spinning wrong way then switch the other 2 wires). Then plug in the ESC signal wire to the receiver. Connect the battery, check rotation of motor and that is all. Be sure not to bend the motor wires too much, the metal is brittle (and isn't stranded) so be careful!
You can either use a push-on propeller or buy a "prop saver" adapter that attaches your propeller to your shaft by o-rings. It is included with the motor. It is called a prop saver because it allows your prop to move if hit and saves props from damage.
Is this the motor that comes in the Durafly Mirco Edge 540? I need to get more thrust for good 3D in the Edge, and I'm wondering if this motor would be an upgrade. The flying weight is just under 80 grams with 2 cell 180 battery. But I'm at altitude (mile high) so I need a little extra thrust.
I bought two of these AP05s. One of them runs smoothly and starts up by itself. But the other wouldn't start by itself. It will vibrate until the ESC cuts off the power due to over heating. It will start one time, that is right after the battery is plugged in. If I cut the throttle and try to restart it will just vibrate. Also when it is running it has a lesser throttle range compared to the good motor.What should I do?
If you are using 2S, I think a single 3020 will work fine. No need for 4 blade configuration. This motor gets real hot when using the recomended 5030, so by reducing the prop, you will increase motor life. Dont worry, she will pull for her size. Just make sure you get a HIGH C battery, like 180mA 25C.
I am running this motor with the Turnagy 6A plush, GWS 5030 prop and HP180 2S batt. But I only get 60gr of thrust.. Does this motor require advanced timing or other ESC settings to get the 100gr of thrust??
Hi JJ460, what is HP180 batt? I find motor performance varies greatly with battery specification. I would make sure I am using a HIGH C battery, like 25C or even 30C is better. How to calculate the C is to divide the battery capacity by the maximum current. So 5/0.180 = 27.7C. SO I would try a 30C Battery.
Thats too bad. To be honest, i have never measured the thrust. But I have gone through a few of these motors. Being small they are a bit fradgile. One has failed due to overheated and two have failed because they make a s****ing sound and are spinning slower or lost power. I am not sure what is making the sound, because the magnets do not look like they are touching the windings.
Yes I'm using a AR6400L with a Turnigy 1S 3A ESC and Zippy 240mah Cells in a Parkzone micro.
with the 5030 about 30g of Thrurst and 1.8A on 3.9V
I also tryed the 5043 same thrust, better pitch speed but hard on motor. I will soon try a 4540
man, those are crazy numbers! I went ahead and backordered one. Seems micro-modeling is really umm taking off hehheh. I wonder how this motor will compare to the C-05? Hey what plane izzat...Hawker Tempest I believe?
I use it on a 90g F22 Raptor with GWS5030, 6A ESC and 2S360mAh: Awesome. About 10 minutes of flight mixing cool and 3D. Be very carefull with wires, after a hard crash the esc go out with the wires of the motor...
