Lumenier 2005 2000KV Chief Ultra-Light Motor.
The Chief Racing Motor was developed by Lumenier in collaboration with professional drone racing pilot Alex "Chief" Campbell.
The Chief Racing Motor was developed by Lumenier in collaboration with professional drone racing pilot Alex "Chief" Campbell. Chief had asked us to make a motor that would give him an edge on the racetrack, but also in the pits, where many pilots often spend time repairing broken gear. This new 2005 light-weight motor not only performs incredibly well on the race track with ultra-light builds, but an excellent match on FPV Freestyle and long range when paired with a lightweight setup.
What's A Racing Motor Anyway?
Race Pilots put their drones under extreme stress. The constant high throttle environment can really push the components to the limit, namely motors. When a motor is pushed too hard the enamel on the windings can deteriorate and cause shorts, burning up your motor ending your lap in an instant. With the Chief Motor, Lumenier set out to make burnt motors a thing of the past. Most motors use windings rated up to 180C°, but the Chief motor is constructed with enamel capable of withstanding over 240C°! If Chief can't burn 'em up, there is a pretty good chance you can't either.
Another obvious factor in racing is power, and the Chief Racing Motor has plenty of that. With a minuscule air gap between the stator and curved N52SH bell magnets, you get great efficiency and power. And since the windings can take abuse, you can feel confident running high voltages, even up to 6S on these puppies, which feels pretty close to Mach 1.
Built To Last
The 2005 sized Chief is the first motor by Lumenier to be designed for ultra-lightweight 4-5" drone builds. Designed with durable 7075 aluminum in the bell and base, and a steel ring, this motor can really hold up to the abuses of a race track or even freestyle flying.
The Chief 2005 motor features a minimal lightweight base (m2 screws) and T-Style shaft with 2 threaded hole mounts on top to secure the props. Every gram counts in racing, so we made the Chief 2005 motors as light as we could (17g) without sacrificing durability or power.
