    PROPELLER EXPLOSION! too much power?

    Hey everyone, I am trying to get my f330 working, and it seems that the Emax cooling 2208 1500kv motors, were so powerful that they exploded all the 8050 props on my quad. My girlfriend standing about 10 feet away got stabbed with one, and i was literally holding the base of it, and didn't get...

    Motor Issues

    Hello, I have an Emax motor and ESC. I can sometimes get the motor to spin up to full throttle, but most times the motor seems to skip and turn only slowly. When I do get the motor to spin up I have to carefully feather the throttle to achieve full throttle up. I have set the start force to...

    Question on Motor and ESC replacement

    I broke the front right arm on my Eachine Falcon 250 Pro and banged up the motor too, from the sound of it. I have to replace the arm and I am going to replace the motor too. The ESC (all the motors and ESCs are stock) should be just fine and I want to keep it. If I buy a new motor should I...

    Motor Stutter

    I'm running an emax rs2205 2600kv motor with a 40a ESC on a 3S lipo and 5x4 props, and I'm getting issues with the motor stuttering on low throttle. I tried a 12a and an 18a ESC and had the same issue. Is my battery too low voltage or is my ESC too low amperage for the rs2205?
