New alien motors


#1

What do you think about these new motors?



#2

Alien is not a reliable brand, their products have a history of failing early. I would not trust any of their motors.


#3

How is it they claim 3300W and a sk3 6374 has
2750 W ?


#4

not necessarily tru multiple people have used their motors with no issues


#5

their escs however are a different story


#6

because sk3 is rated for 70A, these are rated for 80A. I’m not planning to buy from Alien again, but these motors look nice.


#7

…Sk3 6374 192kv rated for 80A.


#8

they look nice though! as well with 190kv, it’s in stock and meanwhile just 66Euros (without shipping) http://alienpowersystem.com/shop/brushless-motors/alien-6355-hev-outrunner-brushless-motor-190kv-2400w/

Got a 6355 190kv from APS, done around 150k’s with it so far and don’t have issues, need to see how the motor holds up over time though.


#9

ahh, see I was comparing 170kv to the sk3 168kv, but it’s probably continuous power vs max power.
2750w / 44.4v = 61A, so 60A continuous power.


#10

What about this one, looks promising.


#11

Naaa… 10mm shaft makes things complicated.


#12

Why do you say that?


#13

10mm keyed motor pulleys are hard to come by.


#14

APS has them


#15

Yes and who else?
I would recommend to go the usual route so you can purchase your parts where you want.
If APS is cheap for you go with them.
Bruno seems to be a nice guy so try your luck.
