  • Contra-rotating Brushless Motor

    My friend was wondering, could Contra-rotating Brushless Motors they sell like this one be used for RC submaines that need a to be Contra-rotating. He said he would be adding an extension to each shaft.

    Motors like that are what I'll be running in my big Delphin. Yes, you need contra-rotating to offset rotational torque.

        I’ve posted about these motors before. Only problem I see is in the differential balancing between each motors total thrust.

          I run twin KMB jets in the Mark V-two ESCs (of course) and a wye connection to a single channel. When I spin them up dry, (between big boats and airplanes I have a good ear for synchronization) -they sound pretty much in sync. It should probably be similar with a coaxial outrunner.
