I am installing this motor into a Bixler 2. Don’*t have a radio set yet so cannot test with my ESC - 30A 3A UBEC Product ID F-30A.
Can someone tell me which direction the motor turns when connected to the ESC wires Black to Black, Blue to Blue and Red to Red and how you are looking at it. I know I can reverse rotation by switching wires but I want to set it up correctly first time.
It doesn't matter how you connect the wires, just connect them all regardless of colours. If the motor is turning the wrong way, just switch any two wires from motor to esc and it will change direction
Shaft Can not be reversed, because lock nut and lock pin groves are cut at specific points, to fit into the motor. If you still want shaft to be reversed, buy a 3mm ss rod and cut the specific grooves on a lathe machine, as per your requirement.
i'm new to these stuff, and builiding my first quad..
can anyone please help with picking a motor rotors ESC Battery?
i would like to achive a flight time above 10 minutes,
and geared-up with a gopro cam..
Total Weight about 2.5Kg - 3Kg
tnx in advance!
have a look at the SK3 series motors in the 2836 size (stay under 1200kv), I use the SK3 2836 1040kv motors on most of my multirotors, they give around 1.2kg thrust and are not too hungry on the power, spin a 11x4.5 2 blade or a 9x5 3 blade prop and a 5000mah battery with a decent C ratting, remember that multirotors smash the amps so you need a high C rating on your lipo if you want it to last more than 20 charges. 2.5-3kg is a heavy quad, I would aim for the total weight to be under 2KG (better to be around 1kg) if you want decent flight times without an a huge battery. On my hexa I run these with 9x5 3 blade and get around 20mins flight time with 16,800mah of batteries, it is around the 3kg mark (half the weight is the batteries, keep in mind I have over 7kg of thrust).
You pay a little more for these compared to other motors the same size, but this is for good reason, they last if they are run a max throttle all the time and the best thing about these is the shafts are easily replaced and cheap.
Thanks mick_fly. I'm flying with Turnigy DLUX 30A ESC, 3S 20C 1800mAh Lipo with 7x6 Prop. I've now 3 of these motors and am very satisfied. Lots of power. I've never done programming to my ESC. Just wanted to know, if I perhaps should do some change. But everything seems well so far. I had only problems with the bearings of one of my motors. Perhaps due to a crash. It still runs, but ist a loud now even after replacing the shaft (some KD shafts fit)
Hi there, the berings in the small motors can fail I have replaced berings but the cost is not far short of a new motor but satisfing to be able to fix somthing and see it work again, good tip on the shafts thanks, no programming changes done, they say some changes can be made from transmitter but it seems a bit tricky. good luck cheers
Has anyone used this motor with the Turnigy AE-20A brushless ESC? If so how did you get the motor to respond to the throttle input from the transmitter? I've done the initial programming to the ESC but I cannot seem to get the motor running
you can check the battery, if the battery is low the servos works but the motor doesn't run. Or, you try the manual throttle programming (you can see youtube videos with the title 'throttle end points').
i show you something *)
this motor can give max 17A , for quadcopter you need 4 , so all can give (17x4=68)A , your battery have 20C = 40A for 2200mAh so it's to low
you need more than 40C , i suggest you Turnigy-nanotech 25-50C
****give me credit if i help****
is the motor shaft pressed into place like most of turnigys motors or are there set screws on the bell holding the shaft in place? what is the mm of the shaft? is it 3mm or 2.9mm? or maybe its a different size completely? thanks
I need a motor for a Fokker Triplane, wood, about 700grams, about 10x4 or 10x5 prop. Suggested are 100 to 200W. Would this motor fit in the plane, or should i better take another one, i want it to be agile...?!
This motor works best with 7 to 8 inch propellers. You want a motor in the same weight range, but with a lower KV. Try looking at motors around 1100 KV, and most of them will have written recommended propeller sizes. Also read the reviews of the motors, where people post their test results with different propellers and batteries.
150w for trainers/pound, 200w for sport/pound, and 250w/pound ussually works well. This motor will work but is a little high on KV so requires smaller prop than your plane likes but will work. Larger prop gives more wash over services for lift and control..Personaly I would drop down to around 1000kv for your prop and around 200w motor. Hope this helps....
Hope my set up information can help. I'm using Just Go Fly motor, spact : 1600kv 18amp and my set up using 7x5 bluebird prop, 25amp Turnigy ESC and 3s 1500mah Turnigy battery at my DIY Sukoi profile at A.U.W >410gm. It's really fun,good power and vertical clim no problem.
his engine was experimented with a propeller GWS 7 * 35 DD, with an ESC-HK25 30AMPS and battery with a 1800mAh 20C Turnigy.
propulsion-850g Amps - 16.9A Volt - 11.9V Watt - 144.1 W Motor Efficiency-71
so far seems very good product, I hope that the bearings remain good. It seems to have a very good construction.
price - 5 stars Construction - 4 stars (with bearings only time you can say something) Motor Efficiency - 4 stars Total - 4 stars

I bought two Of these motors and I am useing a 30A ESC and a 2200mAh,3s,11.1v,30c,Lipo. Both motors give me 187watts with a 7x3E propeller. I tested these motors with a Eflite Power Meter and I was very happy with them.
I installed one of them in my foamy and switched to a 6x4E propeller and still got 164watts of power. My flying time was easily 15 minutes. If you want to see the foamy that I put this motor on. I have a youtube video on how to make a flying Wing that is the type of model I put it on. Search Youtube with my call letters ( 56dkrb ) The Wing flying weight is under 16oz or 464g Great Motor.
