Turnigy SK3 alternatives

Post by buzztiaan » Aug 14 2016 6:56pm

Heya,

Image
( my beatup SK3 5055 280kv )

My current SK3 is getting pretty beatup, so I went over to order a new one, only to find their stock practically dried up :(

Whats this year's go-to motor with low kv for a 6S setup? What kind of motors are you guys running?

Anyone have a clue if this will work with the (discontinued) HK150 ESC?

That ones probably decent. The SK3's have a 6mm shaft. That one's going to have an 8mm shaft. Which I prefer.

I'm mostly concerned about the 'windings' and 'turns' , some pages even speak about 'poles' , zjeez

Can that aliexpress motor work as a drop-in replacement on my ESC? :D
