Spare Parts for Gens Ace motors... where to get them?


Anyone know where to get spare / replacement parts for Gens Ace motors? I ordered a combo form hobby partz, sadly the main adapter was broken. its a 3 screw adapter so my 4 screw ones from my turnigy motors won't work

Did you call them? They might let you return it for a refund and meantime you can just order another one.

Head's Up RC has a few prop adapters, buy something that looks like it might fit:

If it does not fit, throw it away, put longer shaft in the motor, and use a collet type prop adapter.

Hello Jack, I noticed the other day, looking at the HobbyKing website, that the new Turnigy SK3 range of motors, all have a 3 screw prop adaptor.

QUESTION: Do we know anything about these "Gens ace" brushless motors ...? Which chinese factory actually manufactures them ?
Gens ace seem to be getting known widely for Li-Po's, and seem to be spreading their supply operation across the world ...
-The green/black colour of the motors seems to be similar to the "LiPolice" and SunRay Technology motors -but it seems relatively unlikely that they are the same motors ...?

If it can be bought as an accessory and tried on the Gens Ace maybe it will work. The stuff from Head's Up is close to hand and they ship cheaply too.

But unless the diameter and depth of the recess and the diameter of the bolt hole circle is know for both the motor and adapters, you'll never know if the accessories from one motor will fit another motor.

I don't like the darn things anyway. The aluminum bends easily, it will break if you over tighten it, and the shaft and collet type is more universal and available.
