Newbie question about brushless motors


#1

The wires around the windings are not tight.
Is this a common issue or only with the cheap
models like mine “Racerstar BR2207S 1600KV”, and does that affect the lifetime of the motor ?


#2

The video doesn’t work, but no it’s not a common problem usually. The main issue with cheaper motors for me is they usually have bad bearings that wear out faster.


#3

Thanks Alex @unmannedtech1
I fixed the link. :sunglasses:


#4

Those windings are bad…
They shouldn’t be that lose.

One of the strands could be broken were you cant see it.


#5

agree with doomed, if motor works ok though pull it tight from bottom and put a little epoxy on it, it will last longer than the bearings.


#6

The motor should work it came out of the box,
sealed with the quality check sticker. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
Does it have to be epoxy or can I use Loctite super glue?


#7

epoxy better super glue brittle


#8

I have a set of 8 RacerStar motors, and they don’t look like that. Send em back.
