    New quad, no motors spinning after small crash.

    So I received my new Wizard X220s yesterday, and got the first sets of flights in today. Crashed a few times with no issues besides some mud that was cleaned off while batteries recharged. Unfortunately, after a very minor crash from a 2 foot hover, none of the motors spin now. Everything...

    Horrible motor noise?

    I recently got into the hobby and built my first plane. It is a foam pusher with a carbon fiber arrow for a tail boom. The thing flies pretty well, however the motor is a little concerning. The motor does not respond at all until the throttle stick is about 1/3-1/2 of the way up, but then...

    high voltage brushless motors

    I was wondering what it takes to change the voltage from a normal 6s capable motor to a higher voltage one, something like 10s. This is for a mini quad (250) experiment. I don’t think that it’s the size of the wire, because that is regulated by current. But, I may be wrong. Any ideas?

    Extra motors, multiengine projects

    The motors on my pumpkincopter are the 2212 1000kv orange cheapies, for now. As I look to upgrade the motors on my XJ470 in the future, the more powerful Multistar cans from that will probably end up on my electrohub (again, pumpkincopter) quad. I really don't want to have all those motors...
