That is what you connect to the speed controller.
Those three wires coming out of the insulation have like a clear varnish insulation like the wires used to wind a motor with. You need to remove this from where you solder them to your connectors. About 3/16 in or 4mm off the end. HK has a 3 wire micro connector that works really good. PRODUCT ID: 6pin M-plug
What kind of prop adapter/saver can I get for these motors? Not the alu cone type please - too heavy.. Looking for a prop saver with rubber bands..
oh, and I prefer not to have to buy the AP05 just for the prop savers :)
I have been using these.. they are made for smaller shaft size. When I drill them through I can make a tight fit with a 1.4mm drill bit but they do slip out eventually.. :(
I tried gluing them to the shaft with CA but it makes it extremely difficult to remove them without damaging the motor when they get broken.
Hi, I'm considering using these for a nano quad also. Was going to use it with either the "2.4Ghz SuperMicro Systems - Brushless ESC - 3.5A" or the "HobbyKing XP 3A 1S 0.7g Brushless Speed Controller"...I'm honestly not quite sure which is better or what the difference is...here's my question. I only see one lead coming from this motor. Do these motors have 3 leads like my larger brushless motors? If not, how do these things hook up to the ESCs?
the XP 3A is eaiser to connect, and has more programming options. AUW of the ESC will be 1.3 grams.
the supermicrosystems is lighter but much harder to solder. SMD soldering, super tiny. best weight of me is .89 grams AUW. no programming. good thermal cut off, well, slow down.
both are very good esc. depends of skill level of soldering. i use the super micro systems ESC. cheaper.
Thanks for the reply. I'm not too concerned about my soldering skills. However, I'm such a noob programming the things never occurred to me. What significance does thermal cut off play? Also, does this motor have 3 leads?
yes its a brushless so it has 3 leads.
thermal cut-off is most important, should your esc run hotter than what is acceptable to the internal IC, it will shut off to protect it. or else it will go up in smoke.
I'm looking to use 4x this motor for a nano quad i'm building i'm thinking about using 4x Turnigy 7amp speed controller with a 3x2 prop does that seem like a good setup for a nanoquad mostlikly going to be running a 180Mah 2s lipo
ok the wires on this motor are THIN!!!! im a newb at soldering so i twisted each of these little wires onto some slightly thicker wires and soldered them. i plugged them into my little 3amp esc and nothing happened. i tried them every combination but i got no response from the motor. is there a trick to soldering these little suckers?
The wire's insulation (the gold color coating) is removed with heat. So when you solder this wire, be careful that you don't apply too much heat and then leave an easy short between the wire since the insulation could be burned away.
It doesn't matter where you solder the wires to, a, b, or c. If it spins backwards, just swap any two wires.
Yes, your should have no problems using thicker wire as long as you don't short the output of the speed control. There is not much space between the outputs on the speed control so thicker wire is more difficult to correctly solder for me.
kingjamez i know this is an old post but i have had this motor for a while i am going to use it in a 420radjet but was hesitant as the wires looked bare and i wasnt sure how i was going to insulate them you have answered my question many thanks
I used a GWS5030 prop with a turningy 130mAh LiPo and XP 3A 1S esc and it gave relaxed performance on a 35g flying wing. If you want to go vertical on a 35g airframe you need to get the 7500kV motor and run it with a 5030 prop
I use Turnigy 2S 138 mah( no balance plug!) also Zippy 2S 180mah - both with best results. More power on 180 Zippy. ESC only Turnigy plush 6A without shrink tube and shortened wires.
Experimenting with small Cox props - good results!
Hi, i'm trying to upgrade the Ultra micro Mustang from parkzone.
I'm going to use 127mm x 76mm propeller with this propeller www.link took all the informations here: www.link hope this answers to you question.
I have purchased all of the AP micro motors and by far have been the best performing motors I have from Hobby King.All performed as specified.They work well on 2 cell with proper throttle management. Very pleased!!!
Can't wait to see whats next.

accurate weight of 3.1 gr. easy to glue in firewall of 30r gulliwing Piper and drives a GWS prop with handmade plastic spinner. pulls 25gr with 70ah single lipo

I use this motor AP03 with Turnigy 5A 1S ESC. It works fine with Lipo single cell.

Nice running little motor, not what I had hoped for power wise on 1s.
