I receently got the motor stated above and when I opened the box I immediately saw that there are no lead wires coming from the motor. There are 3 spots to solder them on but I have zero experience in wiring motors. I am confident that once I get the correct wires I can solder them on no problem but I need to know what grade wire to use that will handle up to 20 Amps and 11 volts?? Any suggestions o' wise and fearless do-it-your-self'ers???

Thank you

Hello,

I have a Nippy Black on my Slow Stick. I just soldered the leads from the Castle Creations Phoenix 25 ESC directly to the Motor. I guess if you wanted to you could solder some wires with connectors on there. Here are some pics for you...

I used 16ga on mine. I tinned the ends first then soldered my three lengths of wire on to the "blobs". Then I added my 2.5mm MP Jet Gold Connectors on.

Don't place too much faith in the 20A continuous - it's a nice quiet motor, but mine got very hot at around 16A-18A peak.

When I solder wires to that type of motor, I simply make sure the wire size is the same as or larger than the wires from the ESC.

Thanks for the Help everyone, I think I can make it work from here.

I was wondering what prop you were using pulling 16-18A Kiwi?? Im planning on trying an APC 8x6, 9x5 & 10x5. From graphing and real world test data I found these seem to be the best bet for thrust, watts, and amps for my needs. I believe the most amps I will end up pulling is 17.2 (as per the real world test data with one of these props).

Thanks again!!

Here are the few decent numbers I have for the 1812/100

I got the wiring I needed and soldered the motor up today. Here are some pics to check it out.

Looks good except you need to heat shrink the entire female connector so they can't short out.

Yea, I usually just wrap them with electrical tape, much easier to apply and remove. I will do this during the installation process, thanks for the reminder though ;)

Where can I buy the Aero-naut horizonal motor mount. I can not find a supplier.

Thanks Bob

A 10x5 APC E will draw about the same as a 10x6 GWS HD - with that I got 17.6A at 10.8v. The 11x7 was way over the top!
