I need to head out the Electronics Flea Market at De Anza and pick up a bunch of CD-ROM Drives to get some more useful stators. Those drives seem to have a good supply of stators. Lots people use them for RC airplanes and they are a lot of good threads on rewinding them on RCGroups.
I might experiment also with building my controller and implementing different control schemes.
Time to buy a bunch of magnets and wire, and start machining!
