RE: How does a brushless motor work?

RE: How does a brushless motor work?

The difference between the INrunner and the OUTrunner is easy.
Without techno-babble, the OUTrunner does this: the outer case (aka can) spins. The prop/ adaptor is bolted on the case.

RE: Parkflyers.com GEE BEE RTF 3D

I learned to fly with a foamie profile - $20 and a bottle of CA. EZ to fix, and if you can it pretty well (comfortable to you), you'll be able to fly most anything else. At least I did.
Good luck,...

RE: How does a brushless motor work?

Are you using a lipo specific charger? One cannot use just any charger for lipo batteries.
