motors
« on: July 11, 2011, 03:29:53 PM »

hi all almost ready to start my build of the mmm eldergarth and been doing usual research before build my query is that has any one had or used the mmm BF 24 motors as been told these are much better than the T range motors they do or would i be better sticking with the old faithful Bosch motors which i know do give around 14lb pull
cheers

Might be worth looking at the 900 motors soldby Action Ive 3 and they perform ok. Buy at 24v need cooling if
run hard. John.

hi john have been testing those in my mmm eurogirl hull and seem to run ok but don't think they would cope in the eldergarth as did ballast test on the empty hull today and came to a hefty 14.5 kilos  :o so think something with more grunt is needed

They are fairly hefty motors and can swing a decent sized prop.Possibly give it a go. Voltage can as you know
go up to 24v depending on esc. Like a lot of things it all depends what speed and torque you require.Good
luck John.
