The FPV Manuals FM-4006-13 740kv multi rotor motor is a powerful pancake motor specifically designed for multi-rotors. It performs well with 10" props and is a good choice for FPV Manual's QAV500 FPV Quadcopter. The motor has a 19x15mm mounting hole pattern and requires M3 screws to mount (no included). This motor is produced for FPV Manuals by Tiger Motors, the leaders in multi-rotor motors. The FM-4006 is a more affordable version of the very popular MT-4006 at almost 40% savings. Compared to the Tiger MT-4006 the FM-4006 uses lower grade ball bearings, which can be upgraded at a later point if necessary. The FM-4006 motor uses the same high quality bell and base as the MT-4006.
One motor with long motor cables and bullet connectors pre soldered
One 6mm diameter prop adapter
One prop washer and nut (no 'spinner')
3x Socket Hex screws to mount the prop adapter
Mounting screws are NOT included with this motor
. Use an M3 threaded screw. For example, a suitable screw for mounting this motor to a 1.6mm carbon fiber or G10 motor mounting plate would be a M3 x 5mm or 6mm button head socket screw. The fpvmanuals QAV400 and QAV500 frames do include mounting screws suitable for this motor.
Use "HIGH" timing for PWM ESCs
Motor does not work with some MK i2c speed controllers
To use with SimonK flashed ESCs, please use the latest SimonK firmware
While the shaft is 4mm, the included prop-adapter is 6mm! Keep that in mind when sizing props or prop spacers. For instance, to make this motor work with 10" Graupner E-Props requires a
8mm to 6mm prop reducer
