2. You know, this question was answered by me in this thread, which you posted in 3 times. If you're still stumped, I'll tell you that there is no "regular" 13 turn. Single, double, triple, quad, quint, etc.

3. ohh so winds are the name for the 2 thing... good to know thanks

4. No, the 13 is the number of winds. The '2' stands for how many wires are used in each winding. A double, as in a 13X2 would have 13 winds each consisting of a pair of thinner wires. A "quad" would have 4 very thin wires. The overall size stays about the same but the characteristics of the motor change. I THINK singles have more torque while triples and the like are higher speed. Not that you would notice it for most uses. In racing I guess it matters.

No, 13 is the number of turns, 2 is the number of winds.

From Mis':
Turns is the number of times the wire is wrapped around the armature.
Winds refers to the number of wires that are wrapped around each leg of the armature.

6. For a 13x2:
13 is the number of turns
2 is the number of winds

7. I stand, humble and corrected.

8. I see now why everyone is going brushless
