Default New HobbyKing X-car Sensored Brushless Motor

Looks interesting, maybe good for a cheap project. The price is right. There are 4 versions:

5.5 Turn:

Would the 5.5 be safe to use with a 60A esc ??

Turns: 5.5
RPM/v:6000kv
Max Current: 48A

I think so, the ESC will not give what the motor can't take. It's the voltage that is the limit.

I wouldn't trust those current readings. experience tells us that a 5.5 draws more than 48a

A buddy of mine has (or, had..) the 17.5 version of this motor from a different OEM vendor. It ran great for one weekend. After that first race weekend, it would get hotter and hotter with each run. It's pretty much a paperweight now after only 2.5 months of racing. (4-5 races)


And yes, it was geared conservatively.
