Hey everyone, I'm hoping you all can help me find the lowest amp 130 motors, aside from stock motors. I am looking for motors with the 2 mounting holes to attach to an aftermarket cage, but trying to find some with low amp/stall current for a small battery for an entry level/loaner blaster. Seems like mtb rhino as far as I can tell.

Pretty sure it's an MTB rhino classic; but the new OOD Valkyrie isn't bad either at ~14A.

Personally, I'd go valkyrie. They're the same price as neo-rhinos, but much more reliable. You can also run them off of a cheaper 3s because of the lower amp rating. 

 

MTB rhinos are being phased out, because they're less reliable than the new OOD motors. If I was building a loaner blaster, I'd go with valkyries, and the stock cage, or when I get my printer, an ofp 43mm cage. Bulldogs or the stock wheels should be ok. For a loaner, I'd save a buck and just use the stock wheels. That's low crush, and should net around 100-130 ish fps.

I recommend Meishel 2.0 for 2s, and Valkyrie for 3s. For loaners, you might want to use lower crush and higher torque so that the motors can simply eject any darts that are jammed.

Well it looks like Blasterparts.de is about to release some motors that should fill the aftermarket gap and fit the bill for what I had planned.

According to their facebook page they are about to release some low amp 130's with ball bearings and carbon brushes, designed for their "voltage upgrade" batteries, or any 3 lithium (crapfires, imr's, blasterparts batteries, worker/coolook batteries) aa sized batteries and a dummy spacer battery.

Replying to this because I've read some updated information:

I've heard that this is unlikely to be a fully true thing, and it is possible that blasterparts doesn't understand electricity. You can't magically drop amps and also get good performance. They may be lower torque, lower RPM, higher voltage, or they're still drawing too many amps. Or maybe they're specced to draw the 10ish amps that XXXfires or IMR's provide, and still spin supercritical, and are providing enough torque but less than other motors. Anyway, sounds snake-oil-esque, so just watch your gear and do the research.
