Motor recomendations
Well I must have gotten my main gear set to tight cause the motor shaft sheared off this morning. Great. Anyway I need a new one for the King 3 anyone got any input as to what I should replace it with. Maybe upgrade a little. More power is always good right?? I guess I just needed an excuse to upgrade lol. Thanks..

I asked the same question a while back ago. Please walk through history. Gregg gave his comprehensive experience with motors.

I have for now JGF400DH and it is the best of what I tryed, but I tend to replace it, due to it's wear and lack of power which I require now. Motor selection depends on your style as well. If you are hovering, reasonably any one will do. If you in 3D (not just flip - it is not 3D) and just learning it, better motor is required (not sure which one). If you are in 3D and mastered it, then your choice can be lower. I am not in 3D and just learning it, so I need powerful motor.

Sorry for pushing you to search, but it was just recently. You will find easy.

I'm using Turnigy 2627-4200 on 10T. I think its run much cooler then JGF motor and little big more torque. You will need to get new screw and washers to make it fit though.ಠ_ಠ HBK2 built with inexpensive parts! ٩๏̯͡๏)۶ Gaui425

well mine is a King 3 3800 3900 kv what ever that means. It's brushless. I would like a drop in replacement, but I can modify if i have to. I tend to over tighten things though. X-heli has the replacement for 16 bucks, I wanna upgrade. The same one is no good. you break you buy lol i want to make it better.

King 2, King 3 - it does not matter. Motor is the same.

KV is second part of my nick.

For motors it is KiloVolts (this is confusing, I know. It should be KiloRotationsPerMinutePerVolt (KRPMPV)), which means how many RPMs motor has per applied volt. For example if motor is 1KV, it means if you aplly 1Volt, motor will have 1000 RPM. If you apply 2 Volts, motor will have 2000RPMs. So the greater number is not better. It should be just proper to achieve proper head RPM given battery and pinion.

V3 motor mount is slightly different than the V2. Esky added more material because the v2 frame would flex at the motor mount. The Esky 3800 is not new, but its a nice motor. My v2 started life with an Esky 3800. On the v2 you have to either use the Park adapter to raise the motor up a few mm, or shave the frame sides tiny bit because the motor was too wide to fit. Its 27.7mm wide. Measure your mount area and see if will fit.

If not, get one of these and longer screws.
