Drone Art's first motor offering in the mid Kv range.
With the lower stator size and conservative Kv rating, this motor is designed to provide smooth and efficeint handling. The Kv tested a good bit lower than stated coming in right at 2400kv. The results show that pretty clearly here, with quite conservative performance, but very low max current values. It's really interesting to watch the interplay between Kv and torque, and how different props respond to the varrying torque capacity of the motors at different throttle points. As with other smaller stator motors there is definitely an impact on the throttle curve, giving the motor a quicker onset of thrust on the first part of the throttle while reducing the max current draw and RPMs near the top. This sacrifices some top end speed without major sacrifices in the normal throttle range. The mid-range Kv of this motor combined with the smaller stator size puts the ideal prop in mid to heavy loaded 5" tri-blade. Even though I chose not to run them on the stand due to the limitations of static load testing, light loaded 6" props are feasible but will suffer from slower response times particularly on the braking side. It should be quite efficient on 6" but won't have the grunt for agressive acrobatics.
