If it is a stock motor then a LiPo pack could be used but it would need to be a 2-cell 7.4 volt pack. If a 3-cell pack 11.1 volt pack is used it will quickly burn out the motor.
Can I use LiPo battery with brushed motor?
Even with brushed you are going to get better run times and probably better speed. I have had several brushless systems as well as NiMh, NiCd and LiPo batteries to run them with. LiPo is simply a better battery.
Can I use LiPo battery on brushed ESC?
Re: Lipo battery & brushed ESC & motor…
Can I use a 3s LiPo battery with a brushed motor?
35t motors will take 3s just fine too. Any time you increase voltage, the brushes will wear faster.
Do you have to use LiPo batteries with brushless motors?
Yep.. YOU WILL BE HAPPY with NIMH and brushless. No need to go lipo. Granted IF you do go lipo, you might notice a longer runtime and maybe a bit more punch over 7 cell. And definately will notice even more power when using 3s lipo.
Do brushed motors need ESC?
You never need an ESC. With a brushed motor you can supply a large current via a MOSFET. If you want bidirectional, you can use 4 MOSFETs to create an H-bridge that allows the current to flow in one or other direction.
Can brushed ESC run brushless motor?
You cannot run a brushless motor with a brushed ESC.
Can I use LiPo batteries instead of NIMH?
NiMH batteries go flat and don’t hold charge if they aren’t cared for properly. LiPo packs are much easier to use and are just as safe if used properly. Modern ESCs have “LiPo Cutoff” so you can’t discharge a pack below safe voltage.
How do you match LiPo battery to motor?
Your ESC should match the battery voltage, for example, a 3-cell battery with 11.1V can be paired with a 12V ESC. The Amp rating is the most important factor to remember here. Your ESC should have a threshold amp rating of about 10% more than the burst rating of the motor.
Can the Titan 12t handle 3s?
So long as you’re under the 9.6V limit it’ll work just fine. Pretty sure it’s 9.6, either way, it has an over voltage protection built in so if you try and turn the esc on with a battery of too high voltage, like a 3s, it just won’t turn on rather than fry.
What are LiPo batteries?
A lithium polymer battery, or more correctly lithium-ion polymer battery (abbreviated as LiPo, LIP, Li-poly, lithium-poly and others), is a rechargeable battery of lithium-ion technology using a polymer electrolyte instead of a liquid electrolyte.
What is a BLDC motor?
A motor converts supplied electrical energy into mechanical energy. … Among these, brushless DC motors (BLDC) feature high efficiency and excellent controllability, and are widely used in many applications. The BLDC motor has power-saving advantages relative to other motor types.
Are NiMH batteries better than LiPo?
LiPo batteries have greater “energy density” than NiMH batteries, meaning they have more voltage and capacity than a NiMH battery would of the same volume. … NEVER charge a LiPo battery using a NiMH charger (or NiMH charging mode on a combination NiMH/LiPo battery charger).
Is LiPo faster than NiMH?
The main attractions to LiPo batteries are more speed, more “punch” off the line and more consistent power during the duration of the run compared to NiMH batteries.
