FPVCycle 23mm Short Motor - THE Cinewhoop motor

  • Sale
  • Regular price $19.99

The update:
New look, minor tweak to internal stator design, improved low end prop handling, new prop mount, less weight, screw retained bell.  These motors are compatible with the previous 2203/4.  If you mix them on the same craft with similar kv, you won't be able to tell a difference in flight performance.

We haven't used a better performing 3" cinewhoop motor than this one...


This motor is specifically designed for the following uses:

3” ducted whoop
4” anything
5” light blade and low general AUW for 5”

Matching products:
CineSplore w/ Gemfan 75mm CineWhoop prop
PowerPick 4” with Gemfan 4023 prop
PowerPick 5” with Gemfan 5125 prop
Fouride 4” with Gemfan 4023 prop
Fouride 5” with Gemfan 5125 prop
Red T-mount props are fantastic with Gemfan 4024
3000kv version is suitable for CineWhoop/CineSplore on 6S if desired

Recommended battery options:
S 1000-1500mah on 3450kv with CineWhoop 3”or 4” open prop
4S 1100-1300mah on 3450kv with CineWhoop 3” or 4” open prop
3S 1100-1300mah on 3450kv with 4" or 5" open prop
4S 900-1300mah on 3450kv with 4" open prop
4S 1100-1300mah on 2350kv with 5" open prop

4S 1100-1300mah on 3450kv with CineWhoop 3”
5S 1100-1300mah on 2350kv with CineWhoop 3” or 4” open prop
6S 850-1000mah on 2350kv with CineWhoop 3”

You’re welcome to run full 4S with no throttle cut on 3450kv and 5” but be warned that it will be extremely overpowered on a very light platform and a challenge to deal with the electronic noise due to the high power.  If your filters and overall electronic management is not done right, the motors have some risk of burning.  Even though these motors have super high temperature enamel coating on the winds, we are not responsible for burnt motors due to misuse.

    Still waiting

    I’ve reached out by email to get a problem fixed where one of the motors I’ve purchased is seized. I am still waiting for a reply on my situation. I’ve sent video to further explain my issue.

    Cooler motors is all I can ask for

    Using a 3” and a 3.5” cinewhoop with open ducts and carrying a full GoPro 10, these motors come down only slightly warm to the touch despite the Arizona heat and both crafts weighing over 500 grams AUW. Doesn’t seem to matter what props I use, as the 3.5” currently has 6 blades on it and is only slightly warmer than the 3” with 3 blades. Smooth power, only a few flights so we’ll see how long they last. Very positive experience so far using 4s and the 3200kv motors.

    These motors paired with the Gemfan D76 props are very current hungry! I now have to use a 1300mah or 1500mah battery to get 4min flight.

    Best cinewhoop motor

    Out of the other 2 sizes and kv’s of cinewhoop motors that I’ve tried these out perform them by far in terms of power, efficiency and flight performance.
