Re: What is the most cost effective RC brushless motor?

If you use the low-kV of 130 on a smaller tire such as a 20", it allows the possibility of a single-stage from the motor to the chain, just like PaulD's race-winning bike. Of course if you are driving the axle of the rear wheel, the high peak-amp loads will require an expensive controller, such as ...

What is the most cost effective RC brushless motor?

What RC brushless motor would you say is the best deal in terms of how much power you're getting for what you pay? The Turnigy 80-100-B seems to give a lot of power/torque for only $100. Do any other notable rc brushless motors come to mind?

Re: RC motors vs Traditional E bike motors?

I think Thud hit it out of the park with that one. If your more mechanically inclined than a motor drive is the way to go. I am somewhat mechanically inclined and gave up on my cyclone setup, because I would rather ride my ebikes than fix or tweak them everyday....FTR I have no experience with RC m...

Re: RC motors vs Traditional E bike motors?

What is the preferable choice when taking weight, price, and power into consideration? There is no single correct answer to your question. Just as there is not one perfect vehicle for every situation. Dump trucks do different work than the family sedan but both are far better suited for their inten...

RC motors vs Traditional E bike motors?

I'm curious to what is an ultimately more desirable motor for e bike / e motorcycle applications? RC motors seem to be able to do anything that a low KV, higher pole count "traditional" e bike motor will do while being quite a bit lighter and even cheaper in some cases. From what I understand the lo...
