Pololu high power motors on 4s?

Post by GeorgeR » Mon Aug 14, 2017 7:03 pm

Well, the title says it all really, has anybody run the pololu high power micro gear motors on a 4s lipo? If so, what were the results?

It appears they can handle 3s as long as they aren't stalled for any time, but I can't find any record of someone using them on 4s.

You could use 4s on the 12v versions, but over-volting a 6v Pololu motor to 14v+ will more than double the current, draining battery and increasing heat and...

Why test one to destruction and post your results! :lol:
