What is the KV for a brushless "280" motor? After looking at a KAGILLION different motors, i thought maybe i would be close with that size motor....am i a mile off??? HELP! THANKS!
When i get stuck looking for a power system, I go to Heads up Rc, and look at his motors and motor charts, you can find a perfect power system every time
motor to esc to lipo, Hope that helps, Chellie
a 1200 to 1400kv motor will work great with a 3 cell lipo
