M200 motors in air

Hi guys,

I know we’re not supposed to run the thrusters in air but what about the M200.

I would like to use one to drive a winch as it’s obviously weather proof.


Hi Etienne,

The construction of our motors is the same as our thrusters, and the same limitations apply. Running an M200 dry in air for more than a few seconds will start heating up the shaft and bearings which can lead to damage.


Understood. Thank you for the response.
