    I was thinking about getting into electric, so what does turn mean when your talking about motors? For example "19 turn motor"

    the times the wire is wound around the armature(shaft). less turn better acceleration and shorter run times

    gearded correct, anything around a 15 turn motor will do.consider abtteries too, the higher the mah rating, the longer run time as well.
