This motor answers all the trouble 1s whoops has been baffling all the fpv pilots.
Nothing is simpler and more convenient than 1S. The trouble has been that 1S performance for anything beyond a Whoop is usually considered pretty weak with poor handling. This motor paired with the Gemfan 3016 prop and a 600mah 1S battery is the answer. Of course it’s still just 1S so it’s not exactly going to be powerful, but the flight characteristics, simplicity, safety, silence and handling make this an absolute joy to fly. It sort of feels like flying a big leaf...if leaves could fly.
For use for 1S 3” or 2.5”. Very low load props like the Gemfan 3016 are recommended. NOT recommended for 2S and 2.5”. Probably okay on 2” and 2S but also not recommended and not tested.
Previously, prop shafts meant for press fit props existed in just about every denomination from .8mm through 1.7mm. When we started flying Toothpick class quads that had lots more power/speed than typical micros, we started sheering prop shafts when using press fit props. We absolutely hate the annoyance and weight of the T mount screw mechanism so we just upped the shaft diameter to 2mm and made our new prop fit that. This 2mm shaft is not only stronger, but it also provides more gripping surface area for the prop so it’s more secure as well. Props with the 2mm center press fit hole are backwards compatible on 1.5mm and smaller shafts with the T mount screws.
