# What does KV on a brushless motor mean?

Contents

## Does higher Kv mean more power?

Generally speaking the more Kv a motor has, the more RPM and more power. For example, a 9000Kv motor would be faster than a 2200Kv motor. If Kv is like horsepower, then Turns is the physical attribute of a motor.

## What Kv is a 13.5 motor?

Like I said prior, my 13.5t is between about 3000-4000 kv, but thats just a general range.

## Is Kv the same as RPM?

The higher the voltage, the faster a motor spins. The Kv rating designates the RPM a motor will spin at full throttle when unloaded given an input voltage. To estimate the RPM of a motor, simply multiply the Kv value by the battery voltage. Kv is in units of RPM/Volt.

## How many Kv motors do I need for a drone?

Higher the KV means lower resistance and higher current draw and lower efficiencies. Lower KV means higher resistance and lower current draw and considerably better efficiencies. If you’re starting out somewhere around 2300-2400 KV would be desirable.

## What does 2300kv mean?

KV Means RPM/Volt. … 2300kv represents the rpm of the motor per volt applied to the motor. The motor will spin at 2300 rpm with 1 volt applied. If you apply 10 volts, your motor will spin 23,000 rpm.

## What Kv is a 10.5 motor?

Novak’s 10.5s are 4,200KV.

## Does lower KV mean more torque?

Kv allows you to get a handle on the torque that can be expected from a particular motor. Torque is determined by the number of winds on the armature and the strength of the magnets. A low Kv motor has more winds of thinner wire—it will carry more volts at fewer amps, produce higher torque, and swing a bigger prop.
