Default Himaxx Vs Mega, What 2 or 6 poles a difference it make


Hello, I am hesitating between a HiMaxx 2815-2000 and a MEga 16/15/4 for my Mpw TwinJet (Draggy Twin pusher jet)

But....I was told that that

1 - the Tornado (Himaxx) is less quality than the MEGA 16/15 and

2 - Himaxx is only 2 poles while Mega is 6 poles.

It is true ?

What 2 or 6 poles a difference it make for usage ?

thanks

The Himaxx is certainly not a poor motor by any stretch of the imagination... It's not built as heavily so it can't take the kinds of whallops (crashes) that the Mega can, but it still turns a prop with the best of them.

The number of poles is one factor in determining how fast the motor spins on a given number of Volts.

The Mega has a much lower Kv rating, meaning that it spins much more slowly on a given voltage. It's a good motor for direct driving a small prop for a fast propjet style airplane like the Twinjet. On the other hand, you will not be able to spin a useful propeller with the Himaxx. It's so "hot" that it needs a gearbox.
