Still having Problems with theEDF motor on my MSW


Ok i have heard guy`s are using the Li-on Packs with good sucsess....Not me Mine went great for the first min and then the motor started to vary in speed and Pitch. Now when i shut it off and want to start it agian i have to put the throttle on and then give the Prop a "Flick' to get it going and even thenm it is not at the speed or power it should be. first i thought it may have been the ESC but i have changed it from a MPI 20AMP to a Pixie 20AMP Still the same. Each EDF motor i try does this(I have 3) WHAT is going on??

Sound like your batts cant handle the amps the little edf motor is putting out. What kind of LiOns are you using?

I am using 2 cells of 1024 kokams with GREAT success. 20 minute full throttle flights. It is awesome.

I was using the 1865 li-ons. I think you mean the 1020 Kokam though don`t you? these 1865`s should be able to handle it as i was using them in the Tinabob i have and that was using 2 GWS DD motors.

Is it a new motor or a used motor? My EDF motor did burn out last week after I had about 50 flights on it.
