Default RE: Beginner Setup Issues


Looks like you still have a poor connection somewhere."

I'm a little puzzled by this. It was my understanding that with a prop the motor draws more amps, because of the increase in resistance caused by the prop the motor must draw more amps to make it spin, thus creating more heat. Therefore without a prop a motor should be drawing minimal amps, thus creating minimal heat, allowing it to dissipate rather quickly, so that it feels cool no matter how long it has been flying.

I may be wrong about this, but if you could explain further it would definitely help me learn more about RC planes.

Motor should run cooler and better without the prop. Mine wouldn't run more than halve throttle and heated up with the prop. Resoldered and it runs good and cooler also.
