Motor reliably

propulsion

#1

Hi Everyone

New to OpenRov and this form. I am almost ready to go with my 2.6 and have few questions about the reliably of the motors I am hoping someone can answer.

  1. Is there any sort of data or estimate on how long the stock motors will last with proper care?
  2. I see allot of posts about potting the motors. Is there any sort of data or estimate on how much extra life this will give you?
  3. The new 2.7 ROV uses Turnigy DST-700. Are these new motors expected to improve performance or reliably. Why the change?
  4. If I want to upgrade to the new motors where can I find the Turnigy hole dimensions.

Thanks advance for any help.

Hi Adam:

With regards to the new DST-700 motors, see my comments on the blog post that introduced OROV 2.7:
