    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...

    Hi folks, building my first RC plane – the FT Storch. Not getting very far! Bought the precut kit with the recommended electronics. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to attach the motor to the power pod. Obviously, the wires in this picture must be stationary. Thus, that part of...

    My Motor went up in smoke, can I trust my ESCs?

    Hello, i Have a problem and hope you can help me. A while ago I flashed BLheli on my Afro 30A ESCs. I then tested one of them with my old Turnigy motor to make sure it wouldn't damage the Motor, did a few tests, looked if the Motor gets warm and so on. Then I flashed BLheli on all my ESCs...

    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?
