Motor for Max Thrust Riot
 
Hi all.


Now, all you leccy peoples.... Whats a good alternative... Its 850kv I need a bit more sparkle but not 3D! It has a 5mm shaft which is nice and strong, but if it noses over that bell housing shifts backwards and jams on the chassis - as mine has!

So.. any suggestions?

Hi :ws: We Need More Info, what size is your motor, a small or large motor can have a 850kv/RPM per 1 volt, it sounds like you may have some grub screws that are loose on the bell housing, realign your bell housing, remove one grub screw at a time, and apply some blue lock tight to the grub screw and tighten it down tight. or you might have lost a retaining c clip, if you need more power, and if your using a 3 cell lipo, use a 4 cell lipo, check your amps with a watt meter, you may need to use a tad smaller prop with a 4 cell lipo, to keep the amps down, make sure that your esc is rated for a 4 cell lipo, hope that helps, Chellie

Well that was a bit dumb!
It was a bit vague, wasn't it?

Here some gen...
AUW 1.5kg
Motor 850kv
3cell 2200mah Lipo
40A ESC
Current prop = 10x8

Its the shape of the motor that puzzles me...

I just wondered if anyone had fitted anything else, although I cant find much on the web.

Yep - 4cell pack, and smaller (coarser?) prop may give it a bit of oomph... 4cell however is a right squeeze... I dont fancy buying one only to find it won't fit!

Perhaps I'm unfairly likening it to my old WOT4 Foam-e, which had the capacity to go almost vertical out of the box. But the Riot is heavier....

A friend has a Max Thrust Riot and wanted more power. He contacted the manufacturer and was told that it is designed to run on both 3 and 4 cell batteries with considerably more power from the 4 cell.
