Thanks for the info.I have already put two sets(of four) on this quad as of now and as I explained I had burnouts of esc's and motors. Kind of afraid to buy 4 more of these NTM's plus I have these 2200kv coming which I think are useless for me(I'LL probably keep them and make a small quad to play with). Here's my question! Using my existing Turnigy ProStar 30 amp esc's can one of you experienced quad builders give me the proper size motors to handle this Quad that weighs in at 3 1/2 pds???chly3001, I had 10inch props when I had the NTM 1000kv motors on.But I did have a4s battery on at the time I smoked both the 1000kv and the 750kv! Is there a good strong motor I can depend on? My wallet is starting to get light!!!and I'amm getting flustered with thisQuad,Even have thoughts of sticking to flying my 1/3 scale Sopwith Pup!!!!!!
I had the 1000kv NTM on this quad, with the 30amp turnigy esc's. But I did try it with a 4s battery.(smoked both the motor and esc) Then I put 750kvNTM motors on and when I tried to goose it I smoked another motor(750kv) and another esc.I don't know were to turn now because I have these four 2200kv motors coming and from what I am hearing from you guys is that they are not going to work right either.Buy the way I had 10x5 props on the 1000kv and the 750kv motors at time time of burnout!! This Quad is Hobbyking 650 frame and with everything on including a GoPro camera it weights in at 3lb14 ounchs with a battery. Help!!!!!!
return it to hobbyking under no fuss returns. as long as you dont use it, they should refund you. you can check out their policy
in the meantime you might want to try 8/9 inch props on 1000kv ntm 4s or 10inch props 1000kv ntm 3s. by your setups you should be using 3s, but if you want to use 4s you should down size the prop
Thanks for the comeback mike-o,I was running 1000kv NTM's with 30amp Turnigy prostar esc's., with 10x5 props. First test flight I burned up a motor and an esc.(was using a 4s).So changed to NTM750 with the 30 amp esc(4s). burned up another motor and esc.I thougt that these new motors would work better and I ordered smaller props. But I am putting a gimble and GoPro on this quad and I don't want to loose this thing in the air. This is relly confusing me because I am new at this and I thought when I bought the 650quad kit from hobbyking and they listed motors and esc's to use with that frame, That I was getting what I needed. Not so I guess.Now I ordered four new motors that you are saying won't be suffient!! You think this thing will work O.K if I use a 3s battery?
These motors will make a poor choice for a quadcopter. Quads work much better with lower KV motors spinning larger props. If you look at the motors listed under the quadcopter section, nearly all of them will be less than 1200kv (there's a few outliers, mostly for micro quads), and most are between 600 and 1000kv. I'm not sure how larger of a quad you are building, but I would recommend you get something around 1000kv, swinging an 8" prop minimum, on a 3S battery. If you insist on making these 2200kv motors work, it could be done on 3s with 5x5 or 6x4 props on a 3s battery. It should work and your motors won't smoke, but again, high KV motors on quads create lots of tuning and vibration problems that are only made worse if you're trying to use camera equipment with them.
i use this motor with 3s 2200mAh 20C 40/50 ESC hobbyking and 7*35GWS DD, very fast motor, a bit hot but this motor is good
