FMS 1700Kv Motor review
very good motor very strong do its job very well
Excellent value for a motor. I use it with a 3cell 11.1v battery on the FMS 800mm P51 and it is great for the power to weight ratio. Read the reviews on the 800mm series and you will see some recommended propellers. I use a nylon 2 blade prop which is a bit flexible and has saved me from going through a stack of propellers while learning on the 800mm series. It works well with this motor and also seems to put out more power with this motor than a 4 blade. And added bonus is that the motor mount is thrown in for free.
Comes with motor mount.
Great motor and very nice that it comes with the motor mount.
On 2s it flies nice and docile more like a scale type performer. On 3s it's a speed demon with tons of vertical climbing power and aerobatics are a snap. I haven't had any bent shaft problenlms but keep in mind that lots of people do.
Strong Little Motor
This is a good motor but, like others have noted, it needs a stronger prop shaft. After some digging around I found someone at the manufacturing plant to send me some prop shafts that are not otherwise available. I now have 5 repaired motors that work fine, and still 6 more prop shafts!
there good motors and there put through a lot . unfortunately i had a bad one for some reason it kept wanting to go backwards . finally the motor made that marble sound and i knew it was done . but there still great motors
FMS 1700KV Motor
This FMS 1700KV Motor (long Shaft) for the 800MM P-51D Petie 2nd has performed very well... I was impressed by its climbing abilty and overall speed. The 1700KV is a smooth performing quit motor>
Great Stock Replacement
Came with a bonus motor mount. Works as expected.
Weak prop shaft
Good strong little motor, BUT the propeller shaft breaks with minor force, even just a nose-over after landing. It desperately needs a stronger, heavier propeller shaft!
Good, powerful motor for its size. But, the shaft has too small dia. and weak, easily breaks on small impacts. I've gone through four of them this year, sometimes for as little as "nosing over" at end of landing my RC plane. If they were to "beef-up" the prop-shaft it could be a GREAT rugged little motor. There are like motors for far less money but are usually out of stock due to high demand.
