I want to build autonomously RC racing robots for the event (www.donkeycar.com)
I got this motor, to pair with the Berserker 1/8 chassis, and a 120A 3S sensored ESC also from HobbyKing. It's driven by a 3S 5200 mAh Graphene LiPo. Also, a Solar D771 servo for steering, and finally a FlySky FS-GT2E to do some manual driving. Almost all of it from HobbyKing!
The motor is rated up to 4S, but the ESC only does 2S or 3S, so I run it at 3S. I run it with the sensor. I program it in "rock crawler" mode with high braking force and the lowest settings for timing advance and low speed boost. The point is: I want torque and low speed control even more than I want highest possible top speed. Even with a 60 Hz camera, if I'm going too fast, the computer will just have a blur to look at, which does not help.
Anyway, even geared down as much as possible, driving this 4S rated motor at 3S, when punching the throttle, there's very quick response. Similarly, the braking action is noticeable; the wheels will stop and the Berserker will skid. While the Berserker claims it wants 4082, I run this motor on it and it fits fine.There's even a couple of more millimeters to spare.
I had to solder the power connectors myself, which was fine (I have a permanent soldering station set up) and the speed controller came with pre-stripped wires, which fit right into the castellated connectors on the motor.
One caveat: The motor came with a sensor cable, but one of the cables had broken off from the connector. If I had used it, the sensor wouldn't have worked. Luckily, the ESC also came with a sensor cable. Also, neither the chassis, nor the motor, came with mounting screws; the good news is that, because this motor is made to work with both M3 and M4 screws, M3x6 screws will work fine (2mm goes to the mounting flange; 4mm into the motor.) The draw-back, on the Berserker chassis, is that with the motor in the appropriate engagement of the pinion to the drive cogs, the A phase connector leans very close to the center aluminum frame strut. I jammed some electrical tape in between to make sure there's no accidental short. The broken sensor cable, and the lack of mounting screws, bump down my rating for quality.
All in all -- this gets me where I want to go, on a budget I can afford, and I haven't found any flaws with the motor itself! Hopefully it will stand the test of time, as well.This motor is a gem, it does everything right; low speed torque aswell as nice top end speed, i run it in my 1/8 Summit with a Hobbywing 120A V3.0 although i would recommend using a 150A or higher if you want to get the most out of 2s/3s performance since it running hot at higher timing settings.
Go with a 150A esc capable of running 4s-6s it will keep things cooler and way faster.
BL 4 pole sensored is the way to go on big heavy rigs like the Summit.Motor leistet Solide Arbeit in meinem 1/8 Verbrenner Umbau! In Verbindung mit dem 160A Hobbyking ESC optimal.Il motore decisamente potente e generoso nelle prestazioni.le temperature sono per elevate anche nel periodo invernale.I run this in my mugen mbx7 and its awesome! I replaced my tekin 1900 with this and Im totally satisfied. Cant go wrongPerfecto, mucho torque!Ein Top Motor! Trotz des extrem gnstigen Preises steht er teureren "Markenmotoren" in nichts nach. Ich fahr in mit einem 150A Hobbywing Regler in meinem JQ eCar. Er hat ein super Ansprechverhalten und eine sehr gleichmige Kraftentfaltung.
Aktuell fahr ich ihn aber ohne Sensor, da mein Regler keinen Sensoranschluss hat. Wie er sich mit Sensor verhlt, kann ich somit nicht sagen.Motore veramente potente !!!!! Riscalda poco per via della sua circonferenza, assorbe poco ottima coppia per buggy;)!!! Il migliore da me provato!!!I put this motor in my new dex408t with a HW sct pro and it works great. Im geared 20/60. After a 10min main, the motor hit 177deg esc hit 117. The motor is an excellent value, and it has great solder tabs.I am very pleased. It is a great replacement to my Tekin 1900kv motor for so much less $$$$$ Great work hobby king.
If you are just looking for top speed, get a higher KV motor.
