Ok apologies for those who think my questions are not direct enough as I got warned about this. I am really new to this and I will try to keep this one direct enough for the forum.
For obvious reasons I cannot test this out without damaging something so would prefer to learn from the experience of others.
I have a "Turnigy Trackstar 1/10 17.0T 2400KV Brushless" motor which I will be using for my weapon (spinning disk).
Relevant specs of the motor are: Kv: 2400 Max Voltage: 21v Max current:24amps Watts: 550 Resistance: 0.0442Ohms Max RPM: 50000
I will use this with an ESC with the following specs:
Constant Current: 30A Burst Current: 40A Battery: 2-4S Lipoly / 5-12s NiXX BEC: 5v / 3A Motor Type: Sensorless Brushless Size: 54 x 26 11mm Weight: 32g Programming Functions: Battery Type: Lipo /NiXX Brake: On / Off Voltage Protection: Low / Mid / High Protection mode: Reduce power / Cut off power Timing: Auto / High / Low Startup: Fast / Normal / Soft PWM Frequency: 8k / 16k Helicopter mode: Off / 5sec / 15sec (Start up delay)
If the motor stalls, I know the current draw will increase drastically. So my questions are:
In the case that the motor stalls (my disk gets stuck in the opponent etc), then what gets damaged? The motor, the ESC, both? And how long before this happens?
Would I have time to turn the r/c switch off before irrevocable damage occurs (once I am obviously observing the action?). Notes. I will be using an on/off switch on the r/c to just turn the motor on and off (so no proportional speed increase etc), plus I will be using an 11.1 volt battery even though the motor is rated for a 21 volt maximum.
