View Full Version : Need Advice-CX2 brushless motor upgrade

05-06-2007, 04:28 PM
I want to upgrade the motors on my Blade CX2. It uses 180 motors. I saw a Park 180 "outrunner" brushless online, but it doesn't look like my motors. Is "outrunner" a differrent type of motor? Will these motors fit in a CX2? If not, what's a good brushless upgrade for this model?

Without out an extensive rebuild of youe CX2 you cannot use brushless motors. You would need to install a new esc and I don't believe the 4in1 controller can handle brushless. I have seen one person do it but it takes a lot of work.

An outrunner motor would be very difficult if not impossible to install. The can motors in the CX2 are probably relatively cheap to replace if they wear out.

Without getting too technical, the "C" is the capacity of the pack.

The 10C rating means that you can draw 10 times the capacity as a maximun
discharge rate. so....800 mAh pack at 10 c would equal a 8 Amp draw.

higher C rating, higher discharge rate, more power to the motor.

HdRyder, that was a total thread hijack. You can certainly start a new thread about C ratings but if you search the website, you will find lots of threads about it already. Welcome to the site and I hope we can help. If you are looking at new batteries, check out www.hobbycity.com (http://www.hobbycity.com) as they have great deals. You will want to buy a couple at a time to save on the shipping but all reports state that thier batteries are excellent (and much cheaper!). Again, welcome here.

There is a company that is making a brushless conversion for 180 size coaxial helicopters. Includes 2 brushless motors and controllers. It is a complete conversion kit using the original 4-in-1.

We are looking at adding them to our lineup. We will be testing a sample in the next week or two. They would sell for about $89.95.

Did the brushless conversion motors work out?

What a total noob I was when I posted that!:silly:
I was just looking to upgrade my motors and didn't know what "brushless" was. I ended up buying the SlickZero brushed motor upgrade.
Now I'm cool.:cool:
