Default motor setup

Sorry for the double post but wasnít sure where to post it
When i connect he Turnigy and the little motor from Eflite to this esc the esc getís pretty hot. Think the turnigy requires an 40 amp esc but the one from Horizon/Eflite comes from a 30 amp pro also from Eflite. Thoughts? Do i need anther 30 amp esc and have this one i mind for 40amp: https://www.motionrc.eu/products/fre...=8121359204401
Or should i go for a 2S setup for the 1000KV motor?

Your question is a motor user question, motor as black box, not a motor designer/builder/(re)winder question.

Not sure what you mean, Black box, builder?
I just wanít the right components for a 3S brushless setup.

You do not say what prop each motor is connected to. With no load, just running free, any of them should run without overheating the ESC. If one does then there is something wrong with it.
Any of those motors, particularly the 2826 2200kV, could overheat the ESC given enough load.
It is the load (prop) on a motor that determines how many amps it takes.

Thatís not the problem. Just with the battery connected to esc without motor running the esc getís warm in a minute or so. Not burning hot but enough that you canít keep a finger on it. Maybe a faulty solder joint?

A user deals only with the outside, the motor is just a black box, only voltage, pitch, Kv, gearing, prop-diameter, max.current and max.power matter. That's what your problem/question is about.

The other subforum deals with the innards of the motor, designing and building. winding diagrams, phase termination on start or delta, number of winds in a coil, materials, #statorpoles, #magentpoles, ..., ... .Not the mention that less users frequent that specialized subforum, less viewers, less replies.

Hence your question is better off here in the power systems subforum.
