    I have several QC-3328s that are not up to snuff for vibration free multirotor flight but might be fine for a fixed wing craft flown for fun. QC-3328s are 700 KV. I would like to run them through E-Calc to pick an appropriate prop, but these motors are not listed, that I can see. Any suggestions for 9 or 10 inch props on a 3 cell or 4 cell setup, or is this just too much motor for this small of a prop?

    thanks

    Are they beyond either replacing their bearings or balancing them using some self adhesive lead tape on the motor bell?

    Use the Tiger MT2814 as a starting point and adjust the values manually.

    Andy, I don't believe so. I think most of them can be salvaged but I prefer to replace them and fiddle with bearings and balancing later. I need to get my baby back in the air.

    Gary, thanks for a jumping off point. That will help.

    @John: So you've seen my box of QC-3328's awaiting new bearings and balancing, eh? ;)

    Andy.
