How to check if your motor is in good condition
Many of us must wonder form time to time if our motors are still
working efficiently, but do not have any electrical test tools
to try to find out.
Here's a neat way to test it quickly and quite
Disconnect all 3 wires of the motor, and first
of all, turn the motor to feel how freely it rotates.
Now touch (connect) ALL 3 of the WIRES from
the motor together (DEFINITELY NOT THE
ONES FROM THE ESC)- preferably with one hand.
Finally turn the motor again and see how it feels.
If it is noticeably harder to turn, then it is
in reasonably good condition.
If not, it is not, and it is time to get
yourself a new motor.
