Default Brushless Motor Rotation.

Hi all, I am new on electric stuff and would like to know brushless motor spin original rotation. It will be clockwise or anti clockwise? If I want i want to make it turn the other way round can it be done easyly? Do it will spoile the esc or motor? Please advise and thanks.

I know from experience the Losi 1/10th Sensorless ESC\Motors you can reverse using the USB software. Performance is the same either direction.

(My Speed-T runs in reverse currently)

I also asked Novak support specifically on the Havoc line, and was told these also run full performance if run in reverse as well.

I plan to convert my crt.5 but not sure which motor to use, if I use bigger motor so I have to hook the motor the other side so the rotation is different, if not run reverse my car will move reverse

I don't know anything about car motors but with all the airplane/helicopter motors I know of all you have to do is reverse any of the two wires going to the motor. I would assume it is the same but I don't know for sure.

For sensorless it is..not sure on the sensored models. I just clicked the box in the USB software myself....

Ah yes, I don't think any of the plane/heli ones are sensored any more.

If you have the Hobbywing Program card, yes, you can change the direction of rotation with it. Anyway, wht transmitter are you using? My Futaba 3PM, a normal FM can change the fwd throttle direction. Anything above it should be able to do the same as well.

Just swap any 2 phase wires if the sensorless motor is not running in the direction you need.
The China-made Hobbywing and equivalents ran opposite direction of how my old Novak went, if I follow the wire colours. A simple de-solder and swapping any 2 wires later, the motor ranin the correct direction.

(This was mentioned in the Hobbywing setup manual. )
