wicked plus 4000 kv motor

Don

I want to use one of your plus 4000 kv motors with a standoff & 3 mm shaft in a wemo mini but I can't get a 3mm fan adapter. What do I need and can I change the shaft to a 3.17 mm in the motor.

Thanks Rich

Easiest is to send the motor to me and I can swap the shaft for the bigger version.

It seems simple enough to do if I had the parts, just charge me for whatever and send it to me. It looks like the the standoff or standoff bearing would change and the shaft.

Thanks Rich

O yea, it seems nobody has the 3mm adapter except wemo, and they want
50 + for one shipped.

You need a new standoff adapter for 1/8" as the bearing is a different size, I had a special run of standoff adapters made for the 1/8" shaft since the bearing is bigger diameter than the 3mm ones. So you would need a new shaft and a new standoff adapter. It would be $20 shipped for the parts.

I think I am going to use the stock 70mm PH 3 F-16 fan with this motor and see what I get.

Thanks again, great price by the way.
