Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

5s motors

I’ve acquired a bunch of second hand 5s packs and I’m not really sure what to do with them! I was thinking of using them on a 5s version of my existing freestyle set up, so going for ~2000kv motors to emulate 2400kv on 4s and using 5x4.3x3 v1s props, the aim being to see the difference in torque and battery sag (I think we discussed this somewhere else here recently!).

Any recommendations on the motors?

This is a good little table I found on the internet somewhere.  Motor kV lipo pack size to motor rpm.

As to motor to use  :shrug:

I run 2306 2100kv motors on 5 and 6S with dal cyclone props. The 6S really screams but doesn't go that much faster, bigger packs n all that.  Think I topped out at ~120K from the gps, not that fast but it is a flying brick :laugh:

I assume your esc can handle 5S, even so it's worth making sure you have decent caps on each esc. I've destroyed @4 cheapo ESC just plugging in the lipo :whistling:
