High power-to-weight ratio and high torque are primary goals for electric propulsion of aircraft. PMAC (PMSM) and BLDC motors are generally considered the most appropriate motor types for propulsion of manned aircraft because of their high power/weight.
From washing machines…
… to e-bikes
… to lightweight, highest-torque (pancake-shaped) UL aircraft motors
