Can you use any motor with any ESC?
Short answer is no. Not all brushless esc’s are compatible with all brushless motors.
What size motor is the Velineon?
The Velineon 3500 motor is a 10-turn, 3500 kV motor optimized for the best speed and efficiency in lightweight 1/10 scale models.
What size motor is the VXL-3s?
Current Ratings: 65A constant; 100A peak/burst. Max RPM: 50,000. Diameter: 1.42″ (36mm) (540 size) Length: 2.165″(55mm)
Can you use a brushed ESC with a brushless motor?
With the correct firmware, a brushless ESC can operate a brushed motor, but very few companies offer that. If you found a brushless motor the same size as what’s in a servo, it would work great. Otherwise just go with the $10 china brushed ESC’s.
Will any ESC work with any receiver?
You need a brushless esc to work with a brushless motor but any esc can be connected to any receiver.
How fast is a Velineon motor?
Already capable of 35+mph, these models will still benefit dramatically from the addition of a brushless system. The Velineon system consists of a new brushless motor and the powerful VXL-3s Electronic Speed Control.
What motor is in the Traxxas Hoss?
The Velineon Brushless Power System is legendary for the extreme speed it delivers in Traxxas VXL models. For the new Hoss 4X4 VXL, Traxxas optimized the Velineon formula with the massive 540XL for big-tire performance and hard-hitting torque.
How many amps is the VXL-3s?
High-current capacity ( 320 amps peak ) and two-stage thermal protection frees you from motor limits. Super-flexible, high-current, low-resistance 12-gauge, wire acts like a series of giant pipes, flowing energy in and out of the VXL-3s electronic speed control and into the Velineon 3500 motor.
Can the XL 5 run a brushless motor?
Nope, the XL5 will only run brushed motors down to 15 turns.
What is the fastest traxxas motor?
A longtime maker of such cars, Traxxas claims its all-wheel-drive XO-1 is the world’s fastest ready-to-run, electric RC supercar. It says the XO-1 can hit 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and exceed 100 mph. We figured we should see about that.
What turn is the Traxxas VXL motor?
The Traxxas Velineon VXL-3S brushless motor features a high-temperature neodymium magnet and delivers efficient, powerful, high-torque output in 1/10th scale vehicles.
Can you run a brushless motor without an ESC?
No, you can’t. A brushless DC motor is very similar to a three phase AC induction motor. You need to use a brushless DC motor controller (ESC) designed to generate the rotating field.
Why does a brushless motor have 3 wires?
BLDCs use three wires which are driven by the ESC with a phase-shifted AC waveform. Each wire’s waveform is shifted by 120 degrees from the other two. This is because BLDC motors are indeed three-phase AC motors, each with usually more than one actual coil per phase.
Does the ESC power the receiver?
Most modern-day electric-powered radio control vehicles, whether airplanes, boats, or cars, have something built into their electronic speed controls (ESCs) that shunts power from the main battery to the receiver to power the radio system.
