Product Description

Carbonbird Multicopter Motor 888kv for 4S - Reversed side 6mm prop mount (no collet required)  - YSiix or X8 co-axial

Description

We have developed these NEW short shaft motors 300w motors ( for 10 secs) specifically for multicopters with 330mm 20AWG silicon wires right from the core windings.  The new 2013 version has improved CNC for a larger bearing and better cooling. also improved are the magnet spacing for better perfrmance and better balance.  Multicopters control their flight by rapidly changing RPM every few milli-seconds - so the Carbonbird motor is light weight LOW-Inertia motor - and uses a light weight prop and prop adapter.  These NEW CarbonBird Motors are custom wound with 26 turns of copper packed in tight to give a kva of 775ka.  This makes them work VERY WELL on 4S 16.8v using a props from 11" to 9" such as 1060.  Importantly - We also specified NMB™ miniature metric bearings for long lasting flight Ops (after many similar HK motos failed on us after a few short flights).

Features:

  • No-load Current (Medium timing) - 12.0v ; 0.45Amp - 4S 16.34v ; 0.60Amp 13,733rpm
  • Full 330mm length 20AWG multicore wires
  • Superior NMB™ bearings - Made in USA
  • Light weight - LOW Inertia  - faster RPM changes

Includes as per photo
  • 1 x CarbonBird Motor with 300mm wires ; 
  • 1 x reverse side aluminium Prop-adapters 6mm ; with 4*M2 screws ; Spinner ; washer 6mm ID
  • 1 X-Mount ; 4 x M3 bevel screws (for X mount only)

 

Requires/Excludes

  • Excludes Button head bolts M3*5 for SCARAB cooler/mounts not included - available here
  • Requires Loctite - NOTE :screws are held by Loctite - this type of glue stops screws coming undone - Loctite glue is VERY hard at room temp or lower temps <35°c - to release any screw with loctite, simply heat it with your girl-friends hair dryer set to max heat (keep away from carbon)- heat the bolt so it is too hot to touch with your finger (85°C) - then the glue will become soft like butter and the M3 or M2 screw can be "released".  For M2 screws use the 1/16th Pro-tool here


Prop data: see bottom of this page for full data and links to each prop. 
 

 

Setup & Maintenance:

  • This is not a toy - Aviation requires discipline, inspection and risk analysis - Multicopter motors form part of the critical aircraft flight system and become your duty of care when purchased and built.
  • If a motor fails the Copter can fall from the sky and cause harm to person or property below - Always do a full pre-flight inspection on the motors ; A post flight temperature check for thermal stress (hot motor)
  • Schedule of maintenance you must perform includes : -
  1. Remove and add Blue Loctite® to the shaft grub screw - make sure Loctite® does not enter any bearing!
  2. Ensure the Circlip is set (crimped) correctly to hold the shaft in place - inspect closely for any sign of looseness
  3. Carefully apply 1 small drop of OIL to each bearing every 5 hours flight time - with a syringe & needle (new SAE20-50 motor oil) - allow the oil to soak in for 1 min; wipe away all excess oil - oil traps abrasive dust!
  4. Avoid all dusty Landing/Takeoff zones - We recommend Ops from a dust-free rooftop LZ on a 4WD/SUV vehicle or a 1.5m circular plywood dust-free Helipad on the ground to prevent any dust ingress to the bearings.  Abrasive dust entering bearings will shorten the effective life dramatically - inspect the bearngs for wear and replace if worn -Spin the motor - Magnetic cogging will slow and stop the motor which is normal - check for any wear or abnormal sound/roughness/dryness or non-linear friction indicating a bearing failure. 
  5. Use high pressure air (can of comressed air - or air line) to clean any sand,dust, grass or dirt away from an engine after every flight
  6. Inspect the wires to ensure the insulation is in-tact
  7. Check that the collect (Prop-adapter) is tight and cannot be pulled off with 2kg force - Dont assume it's tight - check it in Pre-flight
  8. Use Blue Loctite® to mount the engine screws to the carbon/G10 engine holder.  Check the engine mounting screws never penetrate too far into the engine & short the winding wires
  9. Inspect the prop for any fatigue cracks or white stress lines - immediately repalce any prop suspected of weakness - Routinely replace props every 10 flight hours.
  10. Shaft must be replaced if bent - using a 3mm punch and tapped out - or shaft can be reversed by removing the grub screw and using a bench vise to push it further in and out the other side - then retighten the grub screw
  11. if the motor is observed to be showing some initial warning sign - AN INDICATOR - noted by the pilot but not considered to be a risk by the pilot - and he decided to continue flight ; consider fully the RISK ; this can cause subsequent engine failure and total loss of your aircraft if it has less than six engines. Be aware -
     
    the most common causes of engine failure are
    • ingestion of FOD (foreign object damage) dirt, dust, stones or debris which can enter the motor during take off and landing - causing trauma (cuts) to the windings or insulation of the windings, damage to bearings
    • breakage of one or more of the internal lead-in stator winding wires by stress (pulling of the wires during ground handling or assembly) - can be caused in incorrectly handling a motor, crash impact tension, carry the craft by gripping the motor assembly wires causing a break inside a motor.
    • magnetic variation - de-magnetising of one or more magnets by placing the magnets on or against other motors/magnets or in magnetic fields - tapping against metal objects of the can of the motor - this partial de-magnetisation can cause the ESC to overheat the engine because the timing cannot be accurately determined by the ESC. Thermal run-away - engine overheats because it is effectively overloaded - Copter is too heavy.  Overheated magnets are permanently ruined.
    • dry-joints or inconsistent  loose push-connections/soldering between an ESC and a motor leading to timing faults - if one of the three connections is loose or not 100% soldered correct - Should you observe ANY motor hesitation or stutter on first power applied 10% throttle - immediately cut power - do not Power-up further or you will blow the ESC  - DO NOT FLY especially relevant for long wiring runs or self soldered joints - USE solder paste - use a Digital Multimeter DMM to check all 3 wires show the same Resistance in ohms - check the wires for breakage or shorts.  Save your ESC by careful observation of problem indicators.
    • Shorting of any motor wire(s) internally to the metal/carbon booms or too the airframe- INSULATION of ALL WIRES annd joints is vital.  - short of the insulation from sharp carbon edges not filed smooth during construction - leading to timing problems or stuttering - Should you observe ANY motor hesitation or stutter - DO NOT FLY - replace the motor /wires/ESC as applicable to the fault - Beginner fault to observe AN INDICATOR - such as hestition then continue to fly - delibrately blowing the ESc - leading to failure and a crash - Pro-Pilots discontinue flight/Land at the slightest hint of a problem - because they realise that warnings are only given once. 
    • Poor bearing maintenance lubrication and/or exposure/ingress of abrasive dust leading to bearing breakdown
    • Failure to balance the motor/prop leading to wear and tear. Check closely for security ; tighness of all componenets ; security of the grub screws, circlips and the bell. Be vigilent to check for variations in gaps your pre-flight on all engines  
    • Post crash damage re-use - Pease consider a crash has trasferred massive forces to the motor. a sudden stop from Prop Stike can have drastic effects on a motor turning at 7000 rpm. Check the bell and magnets to ensure they are 100% true and secure after crash. Change a shaft involved in a prop strike.
     
    it's VITAL to monitor the temps of all engines on the post-flight check, avoid operations where FOD. dust is a risk and keep motors padded in transport.  It is also recommend to ground the aircraft and 100% locate the cause of any abnormal performance item.
Notes:
  • NEVER fit the propellers to a motor until AFTER you have fully Tested and set-up the motor and YOU understand that electric motors can start suddenly without any warning.  With proper understanding and maintenance the motors are safe.
  • NEVER run a propeller without FIRST balancing it on a magnetic balancer
  • Do a staic and a dynamic balance of all props for best results
  • Do a hand Maiden - before any flight maiden;  to observe all engines running normally under power applied condition - and all controls responding correctly.
  • During the hand maiden feel the airframe for vibration levels - there should be none - smooth - vibration indicates an out of balance motor/prop and must be traced and balanced.
