i just received this motor , and i was testing it with 40amp turnigy pulsh esc , and it got hot after starting it for few seconds even without mounting a prop , so i'm wondering if this is normal?? or something wrong with it ??
and after this i tried it with 50amp redbrick opto esc , and it got hotter than before , and i smelled like something is burning .
help plz ....
Check all connections, continuity, polarity, and lipo specs. Not normal to have quick heat build up if running for a few seconds. Next, check your ESC programming. Read manual then reset to default and then set your parameters from the default starting point. Incorrect configuration can lead to unnecessary energy loss (heat) and shorter flights. Your 40A ESC should comfortably run with your motor and remain reasonably cool throughout a flight.
the thing that makes me thinking of something wrong , is that i've tried starting it with many different esc's , but after reading more reviews in forums , i found that many people just asking about same thing , and more experienced people replay that it's normal .
Check wires. I have been using these motors several years. I just tested and power on after 1 minute it was totally cold. With slightly throttle after 2 minutes still cool. There is no need to change any timing when using Turnigy plus or AE ESC. Just connect and go! This is also quite crash resistant! In my video pizzabox using this motor and running with 4s battery.
Love this little motor. I've used these on my noob tubes, axons, 30" and 44" wings. In fact, the motor in this video started on an Axon. sat outside for a week after the Axon crashed, moved to my frakenplane, went through a pretty nasty crash with that one, moved to my 44" KFm-4 wing, went through a few nasty crashes and most recently moved to my 30" wing (shown in video). Had a nice night flying last night and of course yet another crash which the motor also survived.
yes it gott deletet ... Just go on ebay**** and write ''3.17mm replacment shaft'' and if you fine anny just see if they are 4cm in lenght,if it is so then these are for d28-26-6 ... So the shaft must be 3.17x40mm that's all and just a note,shorten the sahft when you replace it so that the prop adapter sits tigt at the engine (this way it's unposibull to bend it).
Couldn't find anny on hobby king but here these frome ebay will fitt prefectly and justa note,shorten the shaft so the prop adapter sits driectly on the motor,i made that with mine and i newer bendet my shaft www.link
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
