Is it possible to have a motor which weighs around 70 grams, has a low KV rating of 500? I cannot find anything out on the internet. Is it possible to build a motor like this? Weight can be 70 - 100 grams.

Power 150-220 watts. Most importantly it has to be 400 - 500kv.

Am i dreaming?

This motor could take a few more turns of 22AWG and give you 500kv. Timocharis wound 18T of 22AWG and has pics that shows plenty of room for more winds.

I place the first magnet over the but join, when finished placing the magnets,i place a single drop on each end of magnet and use the same spin technique.when fitting stator i use the black marker to show witness to any rubbing and grind accordingly. so i might not be able to use max' thickness magnets but the lamination iron flux ring helps too.
You don't need to use the lamination iron, which is high silicon and hard o handle. Any iron or steel will work well, even old tin cans. You could machine an inner ring from free machining steel like 12L14.

I make the flux rin a little smaller and mill or broach flats into it to hold each magnet and give the right air gap. This gives an optimal magnetic circuit by eliminating the air gap where the magnet meets the flux ring and also holds the magnets in position during assembly.

I use a Variac transformer for the initial power up of new systems. The voltage can be lowered and the inherent current limiting helps keep the smoke inside electronic parts. I bought an old General Radio Variac on Ebay.

A Variac is an adjustable autotransformer with 110 volts AC in and output adjusted to be lower or higher than 110 AC.

I have made several stylus winders the most effective has a ceramic bead in the tip all others including teflon dont last long before they wear/cut through to the holder.
I still use a fold of thin felt around the wire held in the tips of locking forcepts wich act as a resistive clutch and if i'm interupted i just let them hang with no slackening of winds.
