Default CL-0820-15 Micro Motor Warehouse upgrade

I love flying the 180QX and recently it has been sluggish so I was going to have to order some new motors because I replaced the blades and it didn't make much difference at all. I was barely able to get more than a hover. So I went looking for a little more power. I could not find anything except the stock motors. I knew how those flew and I stumbled across the Micro Motor Warehouse. I saw that they were good to go in the Alias, so I took a chance and I ordered the CL-0820-15 motors from Micro Motor Warehouse with the pinion gear on it to see if I could get some more "umph" from the 180QX. I had to do some take the old connectors off the used motors and solder them to the new motors and in the end I am so happy I can't stand it. It is really like a rocket ship compared to even how it was new. It is such a joy to fly around. It has easily double the payload. Using my crude methods. I strapped the stock camera (we know how everyone feels about that one) and the 808 #16 camera (both at the same time) to the frame and it flew better than stock. Highly recommended upgrade.

Finally! Someone tried it! Did you get the 9T or the 11T pinion?

I used the 11T pinions that came with it. They just drop right in. They are the plastic ones and it does make the 180 QX a lot quieter.

Good to know, thanks for the info. I'll get them when they are in stock in the states again.

The motors without pinions are available. Can you not pull the stock ones and put them on these? (forgive my stupidity)

Not sure if the shaft size is the same. I'll look into it and get back.

These just became available too. Same size, but faster apparently? I have ordered them and see if they work I guess.

Question

Just stumbled upon this VERY interesting thread....

I have a 180 QX and a Mobius cam... obviously I can't lift it using stock motors
Would the CL-0820-15 motors help me lift it?
No plans to do any acrobatics, just want a nice stable hover while filming (5 minutes flight time would be more than enough)

First post is mentioning lifting the stock cam + 808#16 = 16gr + 17gr = 33 grams.
Mobius has 39 grams. Is there any hope?

Question

Just found this VERY interesting thread!

I have a 180 QX and a Mobius cam. Obviously I can't lift it (more than few seconds....).

First post mentions lifting using those motors 1 stock cam + 808#16, that's 16 + 17 = 33 grams. The Mobius has 39 grams....

Do you think they'll work lifting the Mobius just for calm hovering for few minutes? (no acrobatics planned )

Thanks!

I have seen people flying a Mobius with an Alias. Which is so similar from the setup to the 180 that I think you should be fine. You could also remove the cam housing and the battery, and connect the cam to the flight pack over a voltage regulator (primarily to filter out the motor/ESC noise). This should get the penalty down to around 20g.

Thanks a lot for your quick answer.
Do you by any chance know what's the name of the connector used for motors on the 180 QX?

It's a 2 pin connector but I can't find it in any catalogue. Would like to simply disconnect the stock motors and connect the mmw ones (after replacing their connectors with the 2 pin one).

Sorry, I don't know what plug that is.
Maybe you find it here: http://www.rc-connectors.com/
They don't have a 180 listed, but maybe one of the other Blade model is using the same plug.

I got the motors (VERY fast delivery, btw) and now I am preparing to mount them.

Having a Blade 180 I know that I have to mount:
* MMW blue/red motors instead of the Blade black/white ones
* MMW black/white motors instead of the Blade blue/red ones

Not having connectors I am facing a (simple) problem: how do I solder the wires?
Is the mapping below the right one?

MMW Blade
---------------------------
Blue (-) => Black (-)
Red(+) => White (+)

Black(-) => Blue (-)
White(+) => Red(+)

Thanks and sorry for the noob question

I couldn't wait for my previous message to be approved so I cut the old motors wiring and soldered the new motors Did a quick test in my room and it seems the Blade is "still" able to fly
Looking forward to testing it outside tomorrow First impression is that the sound changed a bit (could be placebo) and now it has a "sportier" note
If it is able to lift the Mobius now and fly 4-5 minutes with it I guess I'll immediately order another motors set as a "spare"
