Radio control projects discussion / Re: What is the kv rating

Good day everyone!  Also make sure that the brushless motor is an inrunner not an outrunner and that the esc is brushless at at least 80 amps.

Interesting topic here and agree with the answers so far!  Other numbers to bare in mind are one's like 4832 which refers to the length and diameter of the motor, so 48mm and 32mm respectively.

Radio control projects discussion / Re: What is the kv rating

I now need to get the EDF for my boat build project but what is the kv rating or number and what should I go for?  I've seen values ranging from 800 kv up to 1600+ kv.
I'm no expert  ::) , but as I understand it a lower kv motor has a higher number of winds of thinner wire, higher kv has fewer winds of thicker wire.  So the former will carry more volts and draw fewer amps so have better torque, the latter will carry less volts and draw more amps from the battery but have less torque.

The kv number is how many rpm the motor will do per minute per volt.  So if the kv value is say 1000 and the battery is 10 volts, then the motor will do 10,000 rpm.

This is a BBcode issue I think.  Will take a good look.

Scale modelling / Re: What to use for a lawn in a diorama

If I remember correctly an older brother of someone I knew in my junior school days used things like different types of cloth, carpet, gauze and such depending on the scale of the diorama and how thick he wanted the grass.
I like this! 8)

Yes, good point!  Just about remember those...  Can you still get them?

Just realised the mistake on my first post which is that Star Citizen started in 2012, not 2011! :P
Thanks for clearing that up.  Edit the post as well though when you next log in. ;)

I remember paint pens.  I think Tamiya used to do them.
