Pedantic professor again... how do you get this copper volume.. you can't fit almost a liter of copper in a tiny motor. I tried to calculate the volume: According to my chart AWG 18ga wire is 0.0403" diameter (= 0.102cm diameter)... thus radius is 0.051cm... square that and multiply by pi and you get cross section of 0.0082 square centimeters... multiply that by length of winding wire (116.8cm)... and you get 0.954cc.

 Oct 16, 2012, 09:24 AM Jack USA, ME, Ellsworth Joined May 2008 19,842 Posts Here is what I did: Volume of copper: Pi = 3.142, volume of cylinder = pi * r2 * h 8 strands of 0.24mm diameter x 2000mm (78") wire wrong answer = 3.142 x 0.12 x 0.12 x 2000 = 90.4896cc x 8 strands = 723.9cc of copper right answer = 3.142 x 0.12 x 0.12 x 2000 = 0.904896mm3 x 8 strands = 0.7239mm3 of copper 1 strand of 21 AWG 0.723mm x 1168mm (46") wrong answer = 3.142 x 0.3165 x 0.3165 x 1168 = 367.6cc of copper right answer = 3.142 x 0.3165 x 0.3165 x 1168 = 0.3676mm3 of copper I've been struggling with math for 70 years, I'm never surprised when I don't get it right.

Merry Xmas all!
MAnuel v I finally found some tests (wattmeter) around the L3010C motor that you post before (previous page) on youtube that too is "impressive" results for a stock motor!
I can only guess what you or Jack among other here with your nice rewind could do to this one by rewinding one it would almost need a new thread.
I just got one but I lack a good ESC or I have to find out how to properly hook an "opto" one I have on hands...
Here FYI:
 Turnigy L3010C-1300kv (420w) Thrust Test (1 min 25 sec)

 Dec 26, 2012, 04:09 AM Registered User Antony (France) Joined Sep 2003 3,382 Posts Hi Rodair L3010C questions Could you measure the diameter of the stator tube to go in the flanged support ? Is the L3010C a 12N14P ? Is the stator 30x10 mm ? Are the magnets flat or curved ? Recent DT750 (4 bought in 2012): Stator is 34x7mm 12N, 14P flat Stator tube is around 9mm Rotor extra blue cylinder is around 10mm no flat, one set screw No connectors It seems that DT900 has a flat on the rotor small cylinder ?

 Dec 26, 2012, 07:36 AM What goes up must come down.. Canada, QC, Saint-Laurent Joined Jan 2002 1,740 Posts Louis, physically the L3010C (1300kv) also under the name EDF in Europe, is a different motor than the DT750! The alum tube is only 7mm instead of 8mm on the one's thus smaller tube bearingd OD The bell is also smaller in dia. the stator and bell a little longer but not by much, finally same arrangement as for the magnets and poles 12Poles 14Magnets and came with 4mm bullet connectors installed. Maybe I'll post some pictures later but I really don't want to hi-jack this thread. So thanks for the heads up since it look like some previous made DT-750 (Jack post) for the bearings size thus for me a problem I thaught to just remove 2 set screw and try this one in my planes! I am now in a defferent ball park... furthermore "lock tight" will be a MUST to avoid the heavy torque of this one...and I can also forget about the bearings that I have in stock since they are not compatible! @ 7mm x 4mm x ?mm lg. and tiny. One will also have to be carefull when thigthening the set screw not much meat on the alum. bearing tube for the same matter. On the other hand this one will fit the alum. with heat sink extrusion motor mount for the 24gr. "blue motor" smaller motor that can attach to a 10mm sq. beam and it might the way to attach this one in a more secure less stressing way for the bearing tubes. I also order it's brother motor the 3010B one that is having a sturdy common mount and bigger bearings althogether...again let's not deviate from the DT-750 here. I hope this help...defeneatly mauel v is still the winner here with his rewind one! Roger
 Dec 26, 2012, 09:09 AM Jack USA, ME, Ellsworth Joined May 2008 19,842 Posts Here, from a previous post summarizing the DAT-750/DT750 changes, are the versions of the DAT-750 we have noticed "..There have been two distinctly different versions off the DAT-750. The motors are not marked or described as V1 and V2 or anything but the differences are fairly easy to spot: V2 - Has a 9mm bearing tube and uses larger 8mm O.D. bearings V1 - Has 8mm bearing tube and uses 7mm O.D. bearings V2 - Hole in motor mount is 9mm V1 - Hole in motor mount is 8mm V2 - Magnets are flat V1 - Magnets are curved (there may have been some V1 motors with flat magnets also)..." The V1 and V2 thing is not marked on the motor or mentioned in the specs or listings. That is just something we use in discussion here. If anyone is looking for DAT-750 motors, check R2 Hobbies and look for both TurboRIX DAT-750 and Eurgle DAT-750 motors as they list it both ways sometimes. And if R2 does not show any in stock as them about it in an email. They seem to be able to re-stock quickly to meet your needs. "..I can only guess what you or Jack among other here with your nice rewind could do to this one by rewinding one it would almost need a new thread..." Don't worry about that, we are always willing to hear about any motors here, particularly anything similar to the DAT-750. That video is a typical "misleading to dishonest" Hobby King video. Yes, the motor did show 1630 grams of thrust but it was only at that level for 3 seconds or so. HK testing usually just ramps up, holds it at peak for a few seconds, and then reports all the big/high number in a manner that says nothing about them being peak readings. Separate threads for each motor is a good thing and it logical, particularly as the rewinding gets started. We have a thread for the 8043 too now: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1491875 But it will not show up in the thread listing here unless it has been active recently. But don't be afraid to "wake up" an old thread. Most of us are subscribed to those threads and will see any new posts automatically. The D4023-850 had had some initial teething pains in both stock and rewound forms. Things like ripping itself out of the mounts and stuff like that. I have played with the ones I have a little and found solutions for most or all of the issues that came up and they are not that hard to figure out. To avoid problems with keeping any of these bigger CD-ROM style motors from loosening themselves in the supplied mounts, the secret is to use better screws than the socket head 1.5mm grubs screws (I like the 2mm drive button head socket head screws best). Another solution is to drill and tap mounting screw holes so they are at 90 degrees to each other instead of 180 degrees opposed. That keeps any looseness in the mount from letting the bearing tube rock on the points of the screws. I need to spend more time with the D4023-850 but I have not been flying it yet... Jack

Beng nearly identical motors there has to be some strong differences in the windings and weight.. It is a lot to get more power out of the DT-900 over the DT-750. If this DT-900 uses the same 7mm bearng as the 750 motors it will be a load of stress on them if the power claims are correct. I am still thinking maybe the tube can be reworked to take 2 rear bearings to make it a double row.

I wonder if the DT-900 is a better way to go than the DT-750 or 700? This is where I hope to see a side by side comparison sheet in operation tests. Or, would it be advisable to abandon the DT-900 and 750 series and just start a change over to the L3010C motors. I know very little about the L3010C motors. This is my only motor thread I am subscribed too. I will look at the new posted link on this motor also.

The later DAT-750's had the bearings increased from 7mm to 9mm O.D. And those are an OK size. Not optimal for long life or anything but OK. Most of us will damage bearings and replace often as they are cheap.

The 900 is certainly worth a try. It is the same weight as a DAT-750, probably has the bigger bearing tube, bigger bearings.

The L3010C is also worth a try. It is interesting that it is 4mm smaller in O.D. at 37mm, appear to have about the same stator height as the DAT-750, but is listed as weighing 87 grams or about 9-11 grams more than a 750. Weights are a good indicator of potential but HK is notorious for being a little inconsistent in reporting weights.

I think I'll always have an inordinate fondness for the larger diameter CD-ROM style motors because they are so easy to work on and I also think that their larger diameter contributes to their power. I say that because of the "longer lever" effect it you will when the out runner gearing effect is applied. The magnets are standing further from the center of the motor, they must have more leverage, no?
