FPVCycle Light 13mm 1S Motor- 2mm prop shaft

  • Sale
  • Regular price $13.49


There are many more on the way. This was only a third of the batch. Please stadby for the next shipment scheduled for delivery on Saturday of next week. 

 

Big fat note: These motors come with 3mm mounting screws which are ideal for mounting to 2mm frames.  If you are mounting to a 1.5mm frame,

BE CAREFUL not to jam the screw into the windings.

Safe, quiet, easy, fun.
This is the allure of small light weight crafts.  We've worked extremely hard to optimize and refine the performance from the light 3" 1S and 2S platforms however these motors can be used for any multitude of small low weight crafts.

One thing to note is that this motor has a 2mm prop shaft.  We highly recommend the Gemfan 3018 for this motor which also has the 2mm press fit prop shaft.  While the motor still has T-mount screw holes, only using the 2mm press fit has been shown to actually increase thrust and improve prop response.  If you'd like to use props that are 1.5mm press fit, use a prop hole drill kit to drill a straight hole and avoid a wobbly prop that will cause vibrations.

Recommended uses:

  • 11,400kv 1S with Gemfan 3018 prop at <64g AUW
  • 11,400kv 2S with a ~1.5-2" prop (note 2mm prop shaft)

The Rationale Behind the 2mm Prop Shaft:
Previously, prop shafts meant for press fit props existed in just about every denomination from .8mm through 1.7mm. When we started flying Toothpick class quads that had lots more power/speed than typical micros, we started sheering prop shafts when using press fit props. We absolutely hate the annoyance and weight of the T mount screw mechanism so we just upped the shaft diameter to 2mm and made our new prop fit that. This 2mm shaft is not only stronger, but it also provides more gripping surface area for the prop so it’s more secure as well. Props with the 2mm center press fit hole are backwards compatible on 1.5mm and smaller shafts with the T mount screws.

The one for the Babytooth

I went from the 1202.5s to these and the Babytooth really pops a little bit more (ExpressLRS AIO also doesn't hurt, to save a couple grams). Still at least 4 minutes of hard flying on a little 450mAh battery. They're also very good-looking motors, not that it matters in the end but it's a nice bonus.
