Jun 30, 2016 - Upgraded material to 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, with almost 3 times the tensile strength of traditional 6063. The case design has been re-engineered for maximum strength and impact resistance. More material in key structural areas, spans, mounting hole clearance and other potential points of failure in a high speed impact. Shafts are secured into the rotor both mechanically and with a high strength adhesive to make shaft slippage and vertical play a thing of the past. The shaft is now held in place at the base with a standard e-clip, making servicing and parts replacement easier than ever.
We believe the 7075 Series is the toughest miniquad motor on the market.
The 2204-2300 was first of a series of high performance multirotor motors designed and manufactured to our specs. These are not simply rebranded motors. Every element has passed rigorous design, lab and flight testing over a 6 month period and is a reflection of our perspective on what makes an ideal multirotor motor.
Also available with presoldered bullet connectors here.
The 2204-2300kv is the most popular size motor for machines in the 180 to 270mm class. It matches up with a wide range of props for both 3S and 4S power.
Check out one of our motor testers, the lightning fast Matty Stuntz flying Rotorgeeks 2204-2300s and RG20 ESCs
Stator: 22mm wide X 4mm high
Stator slots / poles: 12/14
Weight: 25g with 3cm of motor wire
The back story
Rotorgeeks has been proudly selling Cobra motors since before the development of the CM series for multirotors. Cobras have always been great for quality and performance but their success has also led to availability challenges. We began this journey with a simple objective - to create a motor of equivalent capability that we could actually keep in stock. Matching the performance of the Cobra did not prove an easy task. Prototype after prototype, we worked on every facet of the motor in the quest to match the Cobra, playing with different magnets, copper, winding techniqes etc. Around June this year, we thought we had it based on prototype testing. The first batch of motors arrived but the performance was still a bit lower than our objective and after much consideration, not good enough to release with the Rotorgeeks name. A little more R&D and we landed on the final product. The first batch of motors went back to China where they had the stators replaced (along with bearings and clips). We're thrilled that at the end of a long road, we have the product we wanted. One little interesting discovery at the end was that the Cobra 2204 motor is actually using a 2205 stator and the whole time we were working to develop a motor that matched the performance of a slightly larger motor.
Canadian customers - please note that any motor requires shipping via Expedited Parcel. There's a bug in the shipping system that doesn't pull this up automatically. If you see "Canada Post lettermail" as an option you'll need to choose the other, more expensive option that corresponds to your province to get Expedited Parcel service. Sorry about that!
