Recommended Timing for a Copterx 430XL Motor
I have this motor in a CX450 SE V2 Helicopter with a Phoenix 35 ESC.
CopterX (CX450-10-04) 430XL Brushless Motor (3550KV)
I see on another Forum that CopterX recommend 7° for 6-8 poles timing.
Someone opened one and reports:
opened it up and counted manually. 12n8p motor, 12 nuts on the stator, 8 magnets.
My problem is that sometimes at lift off I start to get surges / pulses of power and have to throttle back down and restart.
During flight, on my 3rd or 4th pack (in winter though so air temp is only around 40 F) I sometimes get a sudden noticeable increase in speed for 30 sec or so then it drops back to the original power level.
I just am learning so only fly lazy 8s and circuits.
I suppose it must be a problem with the motor, wiring or an ESC - motor mismatch. The wiring all looks OK. I have a new motor on order. However, if it were just settings, I would be able to fly now.
Motor start power = Low (39)
Motor Timing = Normal (5) (Default)
Direction = Reverse
PWM Rate = 12 kHz (Default) [The motor ran with 4 "Outrunner" mode, but very badly.]
Phoenix firmware = V3.28
Do you have any recommendations ?
