One more thing: Where can I buy just the motor without having to buy an ESC with it? Links would help please.....

I have a couple of ESC. When I look for the Aveox motors, they always seem to be sold with ESC on most sites I have seen.

Aveox 27/26/1 (Y)

generic recipe:
Aveox xx/yy/z (w)

xx: motor outer diameter (in mm)
yy: rotor (magnet) length (in mm)
z: # of turns on the stator
w: Y (wye) or D (delta) termination of the stator coils. Aveox basically only makes Y winds these days. Y is higher torque, D trades torque for RPM (faster).

So the 27/26/1 Y is a 1.1" (27mm) diameter motor with a 1" (26mm) long rotor magnet and a 1-turn stator.

I'm not sure where to get Aveox motors in the UK, but in the US I would buy from Diversity Model Aircraft. http://www.flydma.com/

Keith,

You are not alone in being perplexed about the Aveox numbering scheme. Unfortunitly, the wide variety of motors available from Aveox have added much complexity to most R/Cers.

The motors use a metric numbering system. The case diameter is first, the rotor length next, and finally, the winding is last in turns.

The case diameter and rotor length determine overall power level where bigger and longer are more powerful. The # of turns determines the gain (or Kv). The lower the turns, the less torque and higher RPMs per volt available. The higher the turns, more torque and less RPMs per volt. This can be used to best suit a fixed gearbox reduction ratio, prop size, and cell count.

Steve Belknap at Diversity Model Aircraft will be glad to help you out.

Good luck!
