This is a great high powered motor, which I find very reliable BUT REMEBER THAT IF IT DOES NOT START, SWAP THE TWO OUTER WIRES, NOT THE MIDDLE ONE
Pic of my plane with system via link
I received 2 units. One starts up with the proper tones and works. The other beeps 3 times and stops, then will not control the motor at all. The esc from the other unit works this one ok, so it myst be the esc. I saw this mentioned in the review section. Has anyone had this problem?
Thanks! Throttle is OK. I can use the other esc/motor combo, and I can get this motor to work with the "good" esc, so there is something about this esc. I did put throttle up to enter programming to reset default values in case it was set to nicad, or something. no dice.
I have got another question: The two edf's are in a 75 mm housing. I get 1200g of thrust out of both together on the ground. Do i get more out of them if I "fill" the housing so its only 70mm?
I use a turnigy 3300mah 30c could it be that the bat can't provide enough power for both?
1. Check out the manual. It can be found on the Files Tab of the page for this item. Confirm that the timing for both ESC's is the same. If not, then change them to be the same.
2. Set your system up so the two ESC's are driven by different radio channels. Adjust the rates until the thrust is the same for each motor.
Keep it at 45 or less amps and 4 cell lipo at most.you can burst over that but your taking a gamble.ive used this esc and itll pump out strong strong power all day long at 45 amps without overheating.the only limiting factor is the fan itself.
I have this setup and the motor itself is out of balance. The orange metal piece on the rear can be seen spinning out of balance. It causes a lot of vibration, noise and heat. I don't know how to fix this!!! Please help.
Quesnes, what sort of model do you have it installed in? as I am thinking of putting one (or two maybe!) into an MPX ultra jet which come in at 875gm with a normal prop setup so If you have 1kg then it will really go
