Default Magnetic Wire for HP03 13,500Kv

Hey guys, who carries magnet wire for this motor? I can't get but 10 turns of wire on it with the 30 gauge I bought at Radio shack and it had 17 turns on it with the tiny wire that came off. I rewound my main motor and its running but doesn't have enough power to lift off.

Thanks

The smallest wire they seem to have is 29 gauge. I think I need 32 gauge about the thickness of human hair.

E-bay has a ton of 32 gauge magnet wire,

But I think you would need something smaller like 40 gauge or something along those lines.

I've read that its 32 in other places. Whatever came off of it is really tiny and fragile.
Do you know for certain its 40 gauge NcCraig?

No, I'm just guessing.

I guess the mild and wild motor have the same wire gauge obviously with different number of turns. I measured my wild motor wire at 0.11mm which is about 37 awg and it has 2 strands of wire with 14 turns on each pole - delta configuration. I have some 0.14mm or 35 awg wire which I salvaged from a electric motor of a junked appliance. Anyway, I used the 0.14mm wire and squeezed in 14 turns with plenty of room to spare. With the slightly bigger wire gauge, I could have made it 13 turns but the rewound motor with 14 turns works just the same as before.

The mild has two strands and the wild has four.

Craig, you are absolutely correct. The wild has four strands. My memory is getting foggier each day.

Meanwhile, may I hazard to guess that the mild has star winding?

You and me both! I couldn't remember if there were three or four strands. I had to pull a wild motor out to double check. It sucks getting old!

Sorry Craig, it just dawned on me that the wild has two strands since it is configured with delta termination. With star termination, you join the beginning or ending of each two strands together while each of the other two strands go to the ESC.

See: http://www.gobrushless.com/shop/inde...&ref=tutorials

So I can safely deduce that the mild is definitely star terminated while the mild is delta terminated.

^ I meant to say the wild is delta terminated.

O.K. I was just going by what I saw coming out of the motor and I'm not very familiar with rewinding motors. I will tinker with mostly anything but rewinding motors does not interest me in the least.
