It’s important to select the FDR/gear ratio properly, as improper FDR/gear ratio may cause you great loss. Therefore, please choose the gear ratio by referring to the following points!
Operating Temperature of the Motor The motor temperature should be lower than 100℃ (212℉) during the operation. Temperatures above 100℃ will weaken the magnet and may partly melt the coils and eventually damage the ESC (because of strong current). Therefore, the most effective way to prevent overheat is to select the right gear ratio. Note: We recommend enabling the Motor Thermal Protection (on the ESC) when you are pairing the motor with a HOBBYWING EZRUN MAX10/MAX10-SCT ESC.
Principle of Gear Ratio Selection To avoid potential risks such as ESC/motor damage or malfunction caused by overheat, please start with a very small pinion first and check the ESC & motor temperatures regularly throughout the run. This is the only way to guarantee that your motor won’t overheat. If the motor and ESC temperatures remain stable and low in the running, then you can slowly increase the pinion size while monitoring temperatures to determine the safe gearing for your vehicle, climate and track condition. Because these elements may change, so please keep monitoring the ESC & motor temperatures to protect your electronics from damage.
How to Mount the Motor into a RC vehicle M3 mounting screws (6*M3) are needed here, as the mounting holes are 5mm in depth, so we don’t recommend using the M3 screws with the length exceeds 8mm to mount the motor into your vehicle.
How to Connect the Motor to an ESC There is no polarity on the A/B/C three ESC-to-motor wires, so do not worry about how you connect them initially. You may find it necessary to swap two wires if the motor runs in reverse. When pairing with a HOBBYWING EZRUN MAX10/MAX10-SCT ESC, plug the ZH-2Y male connector on the ESC into the TEMP port at the load end of the motor can make the motor thermal protection available.
