PCB motors by @BugejaCarl #PCBMotor

The Current Advances of PCB Motors | Hackaday. Very clever.

My open source PCB motor is a smaller, cheaper and easier to assemble micro brushless motor. 

What unique about this motor design is that the stator is printed on a 4-layer PCB board. The six stator poles are spiral traces wounded in a star configuration. Although these coils produce less torque compared to an iron core stator, the motor is still suitable for high-speed applications. 

The current prototype has a 3d printed rotor with a 16mm diameter.

My PCB-Motor is made from a 6-pole stator printed on a 4-layer PCB and a 4-pole 3d printed rotor. Its has an outer diameter of 16mm and is rated at 1 watt. 

I had this idea when I was trying to design a small compact drone. The PCB motor is much cheaper than other micro brushless motors and also easier to assemble. My goal is to make the rotor part of the BOM and mounted just like any other component on a PCB.
