Well, I got it!! With both my wife and daughter sick with the flu, and rain falling outside, I figured it was a good evening to try the 21t 26awg ABC wind again. 3 hours and 4 Yuenglings later, I was finished and testing it out. With a helpful tip from Dave, it went really smooth until one wire broke as I was pulling it tight on the 21st turn. It was on the final tooth of the 1st phase and I was not about to unwind all that wire and start over so I spliced the wire back together and forced the heatshrink tubing between the teeth. You can see a bit of it in the photo. Other than that, I think I did a pretty neat job. BTW, there's over 15' of wire on this little motor now.

Wow, I hate it when that happens. But it's a useful guideline about snugging -- you can go for too much! (Yes, that's happened to me more than once, but less so after going to gobrushlesstopothelinewire).

i currently am flying a 3depp yak with the 2730-1700 on 2 cells with an 8043 sf prop. i have been reading a lot about rewinding and want to give it a try, i ordered some 24ga and 26ga wire. From looking through this forum most of the winds that really impress me look as though they may be to difficult for a first wind. any recommendations on a first wind for a newbie to get started?

Do 10 turns of the 24-gauge wye. It will give you a smokin' 2S motor that's got a lot more pop than any of the stock setups, and is pretty darn easy really.

cool thanx for the advice i will try it and let u know how it goes. also what setups are you using to test your motors, what for resistance, rpm, thrust, etc. i have a tme xtremea with pc logging but no way of measuring resistance or thrust

A mOhm meter is the best way to measure Rm, but I wouldn't plan on getting a mOhm meter unless money is no object, or you have someone who wants to "give" theirs to you. I measure Rm with a good multimeter and this circuit:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=580151

I get pretty consistent results; just make sure to put a big heatsink on the 317, otherwise thermal drift can be an issue. Keep in mind that "calculated Rm" (obtained by testing at least 2 known props) is often more useful when comparing motors. I've found some correlation between measured Rm and performance, but only with direct comparisons (like going up a size in wire for the same motor). Calc'd Rm is more useful for comparing an apple to an orange, so to speak; like a blue wonder to an axi.

For thrust I rely on prop charts (badcock.net and DriveCalc), which are accurate enough. I've considered making a thrust stand, but IMHO is not really worth the effort unless you're testing obscure or modified props.

Cheers,
Kevin

Yeah, the Rm gadget is getting in to it a bit. The "dremel test" is preferred by most casual rewinders.

Detecting small differences between phases is the primary advantage of measuring Rm directly; this can become critical with delta winds, and it also helps pick out winds with "internal shorts" or improper termination.

Cheers,
Kevin

I think they are all 12n... 1700 and 1300 12n16p and 3000 12n14p

i believe the stock 1700kv motor is 10t of 26g wire....i may be wrong

I finished testing the 1500kv with the HC KV meter and it measured 1473kv using a Castle 36. The battery was not full charge due to playing with the meter,however the measurement was not far off of the calculated VAC method.
I counted 10T on this motor stock. I wound the same motor 7T 2 strand 26ga (Y)ABC and will post the results.Should be close to 2200kv.
