    Motors ESC KV Help

    Ok so I have a Mamba F405 mk2 20x20 with a max burst of 30Amps with 4S batteries and I have 6 inch props. I also want to get the Emax ECO 2207 or the 2306 motors.

    First build. Question about propeller vs motor

    I've got a question about closing a motor and propeller. The propellers I chose are 8"x5.5, and I'm wondering if the RCX RS2206(v3) would work on with these props. I'm also going with a 210 mm frame and what to know if I'll have enough torque and thrust. Not fully decided on other parts yet...

    Motors keep throttling up without user input.

    Hello all, I've got a 250 racing quad that's going haywire. It started after I replaced the front frame (I had to de-solder and re-solder the ESCs to get the wires through the frame). When I finished the reassembly, the quad would start increasing power without me telling it to. (See video)...

    Question about Quad Motor wear and tear

    Do these quad motors wear down and loose performance over time or do they run great until the end and just die? I've had a quad for some time now (Ominus) and it seems be flying doggy.

    ESC wire length

    I am about to build my second quad, but plan to put the ESC's in the main housing. The only place to do this is the rear, so what I was wondering is can you have odd wire lengths on Say motors 1+3 than on 2+4 either battery or motor side, by about 5". Or will this give me problems. Just trying...

Should the motors...

    Crap... (Pro Tip on Motor Mounting) + update on failure

    So I just pulled a huge noob move... I got some brand new Emax 2205/2300kv Red bottoms that I was suuuuuuper stoked to get out and fly. Turns out, they only come with 1 size mounting screw and the coils sit pretty low. [CAUTION!!!] So if you have anything less than a 4mm arm you WILL ground your...
