    Motor Comparison

    Hi All, I have a question about trying to "compare" electric motors. I'm looking at buying a Balsa Cub Kit (Link) from Sig/Alien Aircraft. The recommended motor is a Himax HC-2808-1160 (Link). If I want to fit a different motor, what are the important numbers to compare (besides dimensions)...

    Noob needing ESC/ Motor help

    I’m a newbie to RC Aircraft but am meticulous when it comes to following the right order and getting the details right, especially on something like this. I’ve connected my motor, ESC, Receiver, and Aileron servos in order to setup and calibrate my ESC. I got a successful bind from my receiver...

    Is a similar size motor with much higher KV alright?

    So A very nice guy gave me a elitemodels 8mm epp acrocub kit, but it is just the foam. it recommends a 2206 -1900kv motor with a 8x4.5 prop but I thought maybe I could just get a flitetest powerpack and not buy things separately. The powerpack F has a 2205 2300kV motor with a 6x3 prop, and I am...

    Help! Motor issues

    Hello everyone! I've been watching flite test and have been a fan for almost a year now, I would say. I've learned a ton from them, and was recently inspired enough to buy a power pack (c) and a TX/RX pair. Now, I've been trying for the last few days to get the main rotary motor to spin, but I...

    What to do with a brushed ESC

    So the very first RC airplane that I ever built was the pico stick F. You all don't need to know if it flew or not, but skipping to the point- I have had the ESC from it for a long time. Its a 20a. I want to find some cheap brushed motors that I use for miscellaneous projects. What I need to...

    Help! My motor has a hard time getting started and then binds up a little over 50% throttle.

    I got some motors for a quad build I'm doing but one of the motors burned up so I decided to re-purpose the others into planes. But they have this weird problem with not spinning. With everything connected I have to feather the throttle to get the motor spinning and then it jams up after half...

    I need help with duel motor synchronization

    I am building a plane for the first time and all of my electronics work properly. I have two esc's each with their own 11.7v battery (2200mAh) which are each connected to one motor like usual. I then have the two JR plugs which go into a Y-harness and go into my one single throttle channel port...

    Help! Mig 3 build

    We are trying to build our first flitetest rc plane - Mig3. The video below doesn't quite align, as our components shipped by Flitetest are a little newer and different than the components used in the video build. We are at the step of testing the motor, as shown in the image. But the motor...

    Motor stuttering

    Hello, I recently bought a speed build kit for the mighty mini, tiny trainer, along with the power pack a. I built the plane just fine and I have all of the servos hooked up correct but the main motor seems to be having an issue. When the prop is not on the motor, the motor spins fine mostly but...

    Constantly beeping Motor

    I have made my first scratch build for RC planes. When I connect the ESC to the battery and motor, the motor constantly beeps. Right now, nothing is connected to the receiver. I looked this up and it says I connected it wrong, or my minimum TX throttle is too low. First of all, this happens even...
