Good and powerfull Motor. You cannot make much wrong with it! Just Keep in mind that this is not for a light build

For a much lower price you can get the Keda 190kV. They are great motors and I run 3 motors by Keda. They are also super tough, my mate accidentally rammed the motors into a concrete block at about 30-40km/h

Thanks guys does the keda have the similar spec, don’t suppose you have a link to it. Thanks

The keda is 2000W the turnigy is 2450W

The keda has stiff wires and a shorter shaft. the turigy comes with bullets on them and has a more flexy wire.

but the Keda is cheaper and maybe you wan’t to save a bit here spend a bit more on a good vesc.

i think im going to go for the keda to start off with will i have problem with the shoter shaft my motor bracket is 5mm, ive been looking at the vesc from diy ( the TORQUE ESC VESC ) are theese any good or go for the foc ? some pics of the board so far.


I used Keda with 12mm motor pulley and it was ok :slight_smile: The shaft was not going through the whole pulley, it was bit shirt, but it worked well :slight_smile:

You can buy longer shaft and replace it, but you have to make sure you put the motor back together correctly :slight_smile:

SK3 motors are more often used than KEDA, their quality is really good :slight_smile:

260 kv is probably to small or will it pull?

at 10s, 260 will work. but dont expect to have strong brake. u need at least 2 of them to stop safely. also u waste rpm at top end as vesc need limit erpm 60k + alpha

Really nice deck. I would choose anothet VESC for FOC. FOCBOX or VESC6 are the most rated ones for FOC. Actually a guy from the forum is running FOC with the HK VESC (hardware 4.12) without problem. That being said the others two are made for it.

Would a dual setup on 8s be what I’m looking for up hill climb?

It will Pull but not really strong…

Barely… Somehow i guess not but i dont know

I would really dont cheap out on Motors. I would get some Motors below 200kv and try to go 12s or 10s

…eventually. at least now it’s just a matter of upgrading.

I used 260 for first build. decent speed decent power. just careful with brake. I almost hamed a car cuz brake didnt work well.
