Team Powers have introduced the new Radon Pro V3 brushless speed controller. The all-new ESC is substantially smaller and about ten percent lighter than the Pro V2 controller, it features a 6V/7.4V BEC system and a 180A rating. Softer 12AWG wires, a new internal on/off switch, a black receiver lead and the ability to use 25mm or 30mm cooling fans round out the hardware package. On the software side of things the speedo features 1kHZ to 16kHz throttle and brake frequency selection, it sports an RPM lock function to vary the overall powerband of the motor and a more linear boost and turbo function makes for improved drivability.
Team Powers are busy adding new high-performance LiPo batteries to their line-up with the 7.6V 2S 8300mAh Graphene LiHV pack being the latest offering. Built from 110C cells the high-voltage and high-capacity Lithium-Polymer battery is designed for power-hungry classes such as Touring Modified, Touring Stock and also 1/8th scale racing. The standard-size pack is 24.8mm tall, it weighs in at 330g and utilises 5mm connector tubes.
Team Powers have released first information on their forthcoming M-Radon sensored brushless speed controller and sensored MBX brushless motor. Aimed towards the use in 1/27th mini-size cars, 1/10th motorcycles and other applications, the speed controller makes use of hardware and software ideas taken over from the Radon V2 1/10th speed controller to create a powerful yet widely adjustable ESC that allows for adjustable drive and brake frequencies, power band control and even data recording functions. The controller is adjustable using a simple LED programming card or an optional PC interface and it is usable with 2S LiPo packs and up to 10,000kv brushless motors. As for the motor, the MBX is of a sensored design for improved low-RPM start up without cogging issues, it measures 16x27mm and is available in a 7200kv or 8400kv variant.
Coming from Team Powers is the new 6500mAh 7.6V LiHV battery pack. Offering standard dimensions and a reduced height of 22.5mm, the low centre of gravity pack is built using of high-quality 110C cells that were made using additional Graphene material which is meant to improve performance and durability. The battery weighs in at 272g and it is usable for Modified and Stock class racing alike.
Team Powers have introduced their new design coreless low profile aluminium case servo. The servo features a new direct drive gear system that can provide more torque and speed with better efficiency. The titanium gears sport a hard coating that will extend durability and on top of this the servo is usable in a wide voltage range of 4.8V up to 8.4V. The high torque the servo provides makes it ideal for touring car and 4WD buggy applications.
Team Powers have introduced the Actinium V2 brushless motors. The version 2 features a redesigned stator with lower resistance and improved power efficiency, which reduces the motor’s running temperature. The new case design incorporates an air flow convection system to keep motor temperatures down by 10 to 15 degrees. On top of this the new neodymium rotors produce a stronger magnetic field than the previous Actinium, by almost 10 percent, and they fade less at the end of a run for more power in the decisive moments of a main. The motor is rounded out by a new endbell design that has a greater range of timing, this gives the racer the ability to tailor the motor to his gearing and also changing track conditions. The V2 will become available in a range of modified and stock windings very soon.
Coming from Team Powers are two heavy duty power capacitor boards for 1S and 2S applications. Designed to improve initial motor punch and reduce motor fading over the course of a run, the capacitor boards are ideal for Stock and 1/12th scale racing. The 2S board utilises three capacitors while the 1S unit is of a smaller two-cap design with both featuring sturdy and easy-to-mount aluminium cases and heavy duty solder tabs. Both boards are made for the use in place for the speed controller’s stock capacitors and they are available soon.
Team Powers have introduced their forthcoming 6400mAh 7.4V LiPo battery pack. Aimed at Stock class racing the battery is made from high-performance 100C and it utilizes a protective hardcase equipped with “through-type” 5mm bullet-type connectors and a 2mm balancer port. The battery pack is hitting the stores soon.
