+1 on gobrushless. You will need wire anyway and they are a good site for info. Easier to start with an ABC wind than a dLRK. If you don't know what that means start with a simple gobrushless kit.

Reading through the GB Knowledge Base is a great way to get a grip on the fundamentals. It will probably seem a little bewildering at first but that is normal I think.

Here is a link to the instructions for winding a motor that used to be available as a kit, the Komodo KH-247. It had a 12 arm stators and could be wound with 14 magnets and that is a common configuration for motors now. It will show you the parts and process pretty clearly.

When you get to the point where you have a motor in hand and are ready to rewind it, search this forum for that motor's model name and you may find some good info for the wind. Or post the make and model info here and someone can give links for some of the tutorials for various motor rewinds that are already here.

I thought I had heard that those were not available any more. That does look like a nice way to get started though. If you can find any of the CD-ROM style motors like the Tower Pro 24xx they are good motors to start with. Some will have 9 arm stators and some will have 12 arm stators, the number of magnets will vary from one to the other, but all of them are good candidates for getting started.

If you know any fliers that have motors that are broken or burned out maybe you can get one of those to start with.

Good luck with it!
