Thread: Same motor with different kv
07/12/2018 09:47:03

what is the point of having the same motor with different kv - eg the turnigy g46 easymatch has 3 models 420kv, 550kv and 670kv. i dont see the point as surely you would pick the highest kv so you can use the smallest prop - or am i missing something

just had a prang with an old gangster 52 that i converted, i suspect the the Cog was too far forward as when i throttled back to land it kind of dived into the ground (all repaired now) also elevator was sluggish requiring a lot of input - does this sound like Cog issue to you guys?
