This week i managed to burn up one of my NTM PropDrive 270s. It’s not completely dead yet, but you could fry an egg on it after only a few minutes of run time. I’m pretty sure the bearings or something are blown as well because there’s now a lot of play in the can that causes the shaft to misalign the pulleys enough to burn up the belt on the mounts. The other one is still running cool and comfy and is having none of this nonsense.
So I go to replace it and guess what? Backordered. 5055 SK3s are also backordered. Tacons? Backordered (and i’m not sure i want them anyway at the moment). Original Enertion R-SPEC 245s? They no longer seem to exist. DIYElectricskateboard had a 200kv 5060 for a while and it has disappeared. Alien has a 5065 but i’m not sure i can fit two on a single 180mm caliber II with the older Enertion mounts.
While I am looking forward to using the new R-SPEC 190s with my space cell and a couple of VESCs one day, I still have a 6S that needs to continue kicking ass with a higher kv motor that fits the original Enertion mounts.
Anything over 200kv in a 5060 of 5055 package would be perfect, but i can’t seem to find anything like that at the moment. @onloop mentioned in another thread about some things the industry is doing that is directly affecting this, but i was curious if in the mean time anyone had any ideas.
