15-turn 24-gauge 22.7mm CDROM w/Curvies $15 Shipped

I actually hate to part with this, but I just have so many motors. I'm pretty proud of this one. Back when Len was selling a 15-turn 25-gauge motor and folks just loved it, I idly wondered if I could manage 15 turns of 24-gauge.

Turns out it was kind of tight, but it went. The test results with an 8040 GWS HD prop were pretty good:
Kokam 340 2s
Max 10.0oz 6.68a 5.99v Hover: 5.8oz 2.82a 6.99v
TP730 2s
Max 12.1oz 8.38a 6.75v Hover: 6.1oz 2.87a 7.50v

I flew it a couple of times, but I have about ten other similar-sized motors and it never found a permanent home for one reason or another.

It's the "Magic Motor" sort that involves no clips -- the magnetic attraction alone holds the can on. You can just pop it off any time you want, which tends to freak people out. The novelty value alone is worth the price of admission (no, none of mine have ever come off inadvertently).

The magnets are curved to fit the can with a nice, small air gap. Weight comes in at 22 grams, which is still just a shade under the pretty decent cheap motors that are floating around, and they won't do an 8040 HD very well 2s.

It's a bit of nostalgia at a pretty good price. Hope somebody likes it. Shipping is First Class USPS ConUS.
