Sidewinder studdering

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Guys. I just installed a castle sidewinder with the 5700kv motor, and when I apply full throttle it rolls an inch or two then studders.
Any ideas why it would do this?
Any help would be appreciated Thanks!

re mamba cogging

sounds like your motor is cogging.

do you have the motor wires soldered directly to the speed control wires or are you using the bullet connectors?

i had cogging with my mamba using the bullet connectors and a castle creations technician told me to get rids of the bullet connectors and solder the wires. once i did that the cogging went away.
