Default Walkera 3200 Brushless & 30 AM Controller

I just recieved my Walkera 3200 Brushless Motor & 30 Amp Controller. The Motor has 3 leads to connect to the controller(Red, Green, and Yellow) and the controller has 3 leads to connect to the motor(Black, Red, and Blue). What color leads connect to each other. This is my first brushless set up and I am confused with it. I am waiting to here from the manufacture on this and I was hoping someone here at RC Universe could help.

Thanks

Thanks for the feed back on this. I'll give that wiring combo a try. Have you used your #36 Walkera on a plane or helicopter? I am going to us mine on a Great Planes Sukhoi 3d I have. Do you know of a gear box that might work with this engine. A couple of guy's at my field think a GWS EPS gear box might work. What is your thoughts on that?

Did you get the 30 AMP Walkera Brushless ESC controller? What do you think of the motor? Does it have the power you hoped it would?

You All come back know!

Thats good bye in Southern.

Jim

Yes the wiring suggestion helped. I found a Hi-max gear box that works perfectly with this motor. I am going to be using a APC 11x7 prop and a 4.4 to 1 gear ration. This combination should give me the power to due the stunts I want to try. I am not sure if i'll have enough power to do any 3D fly-in, but I am not really into 3D anyway.

Thanks again for your help.

Just for your info wiring doesn't matter on a brushless motor, chuck them in any place and if it goes the wrong way just change any 2 wires, it basically just a 3 phase motor...

What battery are you using with this? And what kind of run times are you getting?

Been interested in some of these cheap ebay setups.....

I am only getting about 5 minutes run time with this setup at the moment. I believe the problem is I bought the 1800mah battery off of e-bay(no brand name on the battery) and it came with its own charger, that is made for li-ion batteries. I have read other post here and found that a li-ion charger will not fully charge a Li-Po battery. You'll only get at best a 90% charged battery. I am ordering the apache 2020 Li-po charger from Hobby Lobby that cost only $29.95. I hope this will give me longer flying time.

The Walkera 3200 with 30a controller has all the power I need, I just want more flying time. The 30A walkera controller is made for helicopters and does not come with a brake feature.

Thanks

Before your 30a controller burnt out how much flying time where you getting and what type of batteries did you use? I am using my setup on a great planes suhkoi 3d plane.

how much flying time/??
None. the pinion kept comming loose so it wouldnt take off..
but if it didnt, im guessing 8 mins... (total guess)

u should get more flying time on a plane because the plane will fly for longer even when the motor slows done

Hi guys I'm using the walkera 180L 3200 and the 30 amp controler that came with it on my slow stick.
It's set up with the stock GWS 300d gearbox an 6.6:1 gears 12x6 prop on 3s 2100 lipos 11.23 amp static draw
at full throttle about 32-34 oz of static thrust.
Ive had flights at over 33 minutes on one battery, with some cruz and some full throttle for straight up verticals and loops

I'v not had the motor for more than a month and only has about 2 hours of flight time on it.
I see there is a combo deal on Ebay for motor, ESC, battery 2100 11.1 volt lipo and charger.

What brand of Li-Po battery are you using. I got my 1800mah Li-Po from the same guy I brought the motor and 30a controller from. In his spec's on the battery it says I should get 30 min flight time with this battery, but that is on a helicopter and I have it in a plane.

Thanks

Having an 1800mAh battery doesn't automatically entitle you to a 30 minute flight simply because it's an 1800mAh battery. Flying time depends on the average Amps that the motor draws during the flight, and the capacity of the battery. mAh is a measure of capacity, like ounces in a glow fuel tank. An 18oz tank will only last 10 minutes if the engine is using 1.8 ounces per minute. Similarly, if a motor is drawing 18 Amps on average, that 1800mAh battery will only last 6 minutes at best. To get 30 minutes, the motor would have to draw about 4 Amps on average, which is highly unlikely.

I suspect that's why you're only getting 5 minutes worth of flight out of the 1800mAh LiPoly.

sparkling_fist,

A little green Loctite on the pinion will go a long way to keeping it from coming off. Give it ample time to cure, though.

Did you try to get warranty service on that burned out ESC?

Thanks for letting me know the brand of battery you are using. If my batteries do not come to a full charge tonight after I us my new e-zone charger, I'll get another battery and try it. I'll get a Thunder Power.

Thanks

Cool
Do you have a volt meter to check the voltage after charging?
Anyway if it does turn out to be the battery, that guy also sells the motor and speed control only combo for
a good price.

Jim you my want to try that 12x6 prop with 6.6:1 gears it will help to keep the amperage down on the motor.
will spin the prop a little slower but will produce good thrust. Thats the good thing about the himax gearbox, it comes with three
different gear ratios. A 12x6 prop performance is best at lower rpm. a prop that has a higher second number performs better at a higher rpm, that a speed prop( 12x8)

For all you guys who are using the Walkers 3200, here are some test stand data I generated for it.

Cheers, Phil

I did not get the chance to test my battery last night so I will be doing it tonight. I do have a volt meter to check the charge. I'll let you know how it goes.

This information is great. From looking at it I think my problrm is I am trying to get to much out of this little brushless motor am 30a controller. It looks like the best I'll every get out of my setup is 7 minutes if I have a full charge. I'm going to try a differnet prop and gear ratio on this motor. Right know I am using an APC 11x7 prop with 4.4 to 1 gears. I'll try a 12x6 prop with 6.6 to 1. I won't have the rpm, but I hope to have the thrust to fly my Great Planes suhkoi that weigh's in at 26 oz fully loaded.

Thanks
