The 10gm 2000kv brushless motor (also called 1710) is an excellent little motor that can handle a variety of props and can be used with 1S, 2S, or 3S Lipo batteries. Typical propeller when used with a 3S battery is a 2-blade 6×3, and on our smaller twin-engine models we use a 5×3 or 5×4 3-bladed propeller (that propeller is close to the correct scale size). For the Rabid Models “Mini-Komet” ME163 we use a 4×4 propeller for the best performance.
In this package the aluminum mount and 2mm bullet connectors are included with the motor. A propsaver or prop adapter is required (not included). The shaft diameter is 1.5mm. For best results we strongly recommend using a removeable “threadlocker” compound on the tiny grub screws that hold the motor to the mount.
As with all brushless motors, a brushless ESC is required (available separately). Current draw is around 5-6 amps. The direction of rotation can be reversed by switching any 2 of the 3 motor leads. We do have reverse-rotation 5×3 3-bladed propellers available. We also offer custom-designed 3D-printed spinners to fit this motor and our 3-bladed props. (the picture shows our P38 spinners with regular and CR propellers.)
