I just noticed on my CDE trex that i can only spin the blades 1 direction, however on my friends v2 trex you can turn them both ways by hand. what makes the difference and why is this?

just was curious

It will turn both ways. There is no restriction in one direction due to it's autorotation capability. There is the resistance of the motor in the other direction, but it will turn.

The difference is in the motor, if you are using for example a mega it can only spin one way but if you are using an outrunner motor like the one from align it will spin both way and it a lot easy to do auto

Some motor designs are known to "cog" or be hard to turn by hand. Other motor designs don't "cog" and the motors can be turned freely by hand.

If you have one of those "cogging" motors, then your rotor blades will be easy to turn in the normal direction (due to the one-way clutch bearing doing its job), but it will be difficult to turn the rotor blades backwards because the one-way clutch is engaged, and the motor is keeping the drive train from turning.

If you have one of the motors that turns freely by hand, you'll be able to turn the rotors either way with little or no resistance.

ahh this makes sence, i am using a Mega motor and my friend is using an AON.


thanks for the input, i was wondering about that, ithought it might be a differnce between the v2 and v3, when i guess it was just a motor differnce.

I think all the electric motors do spin both ways. You can switch two of the three leads and the motors would spin the other way. Isn't this correct?

SBK,
Just like any 3 phase motor, switching any two leads causes the motor to change direction.

This thread is about an UNPOWERED motor, not about how to change the directions of a motor.

Some motors turn freely, others don't when not powered.
