@Daniel92104 brought it to my attention by mentioning the castle 2028 motors (I have one, and before doing any eboard research, my plan like daniel’s was to use one of castle’s motors), which are inrunners made for large scale rc cars. They really are beast motors, retailing at 200ish USD, but at 800kv for the lowest one, they just aren’t practical…
so does anyone know why there aren’t any brushless inrunners around the 150-300kv range?
I mean, it seems like the advantages would be great: more robust against debree because of a hard, stationary can…Possibility of an added fan or heatsink (like on the caste motors). splash proof design because (besides bearings…) it would be sealed (again, like castle motors which are claimed to be “waterproof” as long as you like replacing bearings).
here is a pic I found of a castle motor against a soda can:
