Reversing Astro .010 motor



Can you reverse this motor by simply changing any two of the 3 wires going to the motor? How about timing?
I want to use this motor as a pusher (Zagi style) on a light 10 oz. foam flying wing .... might use a .020 Astro. Is the .020 with factory esc as easy to reverse? Thanks guys.

According to AstroBob, you are correct. Exchange any two of the wires between the on-off control and the motor.

Indeed, swap any 2 wires and you are set. As the 010 is sensorless the timing is set by the controller.

The 020 with factory ESC is not easily reversed as it is a sensor type. It would be out of the scope for most of us.

The 010 will work great on a 10 ounce model. In fact I have flown an FMA Razor with one and while the power was lacking, it did fly fine. The 020 would be overkill on a 10 ounce model.

Good luck!
