    Rewinding a Brushless Motor

    I recently bought a motor from some really cheap Chinese web shop, hoping that it would have enough power for the job. Unfortunately, it doesn't. I looked at some similar motors from more reputable manufacturers (Omega 103g and Hacker A30-28S V3) and it's about 100W down in power from them. Can anyone here tell me how I could rewind the motor to get more power out of it?
    I know I can do it lower than that...

    If it's possible to be rewound, contact Ken at subsonicplanes and he usually charges about $30 for it IIRC.

    I've heard that he's considered to be the best in the business for custom wound motors, and I was considering contacting him. It is something I'd like to try myself though, and $30 is about twice what it cost to get the motor to my door!
