Japanese brand Trion have introduced their new V2 series 540-size sensored electric brushless motor. The power plant is of a new design that revolves around a high-airflow can with huge cooling openings around the front section while machined openings in the stator area further increase the airflow in this area. This leads to a much cooler motor towards the end of a run and thus reduced fading and more stable performance. An updated stator further adds to the overall performance with increased torque and reduced heat build-up. The motor is rounded out by a new rotor and available from now on in a 5.0T touring and a 6.5T off-road variant with additional 4.5T to 8.5T variants coming later in July.
Coming from Team Corally are the new Molan SS 3.0 modified brushless motors. Their specially designed can offers optimised airflow for improved cooling and thus less power fading towards the end of a run while also ensuring a very low weight. The motors come with static and dynamic balanced rotors for extra performance, heavy duty solder tabs, dual sensor ports and they are available in 3.5T to 10.5T variants.
Hitec have introduced their new H4 Plus DC/DC 4-port smart charger. Housed in an all-aluminium case the device features a 32-bit microprocessor, 128x64px back-lit display and four 150W charge outputs. With the Channel Bridge Function a total of 300W charge power can be achieved with the charger offering multi-chemistry abilities to charge LiHV, LiPo, LiFe as well as NiXX and Pb batteries. The DC charger furthermore offers built-in cell check functions as well as a Lithium chemistry battery discard function.
PPM RC Racing have introduced the new RC-Cox 5mm LiPo battery safety plugs. Made from a soft material the plugs were designed to cover the unused openings of through-type LiPo battery connector tubes, keeping them from becoming dirty and damaged while also avoiding putting the battery in the car the wrong way around which can result in short circuits during hectic plug in routines. The plugs are easy to remove yet strong enough to not fall off even when the going gets tough and they come in sets of ten, enough to outfit five 5mm connector battery packs.
Coming from Team Corally is the Cerix Pro 160 Racing Factory Black Edition brushless speed controller. The 2S to 3S LiPo compatible 1/10th scale speedo offers the same features and specifications and the standard, red case Cerix Pro 160 with the all-black alloy case making it better suited for all vehicles whose anodising colours clash with the original Team Corally red. The controller is widely adjustable in terms of throttle and brake control, boost and turbo functions and it offers a 7.4V/6.0V BEC system, ten programmable profiles and it comes including an optional add-on cooling fan.
Coming from LRP’s Antix brand are several high-voltage LiHV hardcase battery packs for a range of applications. All batteries utilise LRP’s Graphene cell technology known from the company’s competition line of batteries and their increased nominal voltage makes them ideal for outlaw racing classes or backyard bashing. The range includes a 2S 4200mAh shorty battery pack, a 2S 9000mAh and a 2S 5400mAh standard-size pack, a 2S 5400mAh round case stick pack, as well as a 2100mAh 1/8th scale battery. The range is rounded out by a low-profile 3S 4600mAh pack, a 3S 6400mAh battery and a 4S 6400mAh 1/8th scale brick pack. All are made using high-quality 45C cells and they are available now.
Muchmore Racing have introduced the Fleta ZX V2, a brand new motor that guarantees maximum power and efficiency. Featuring a heavily machined can, the Flow-Max 2 Cooling System allows for superior cooling, enhancing the cooling efficiency by 15% in comparison to their previous motors, which is great achievement in terms of keeping the motor performance as high as possible. In addition, the High Power new stator design approach doesn’t use a separate insulator, therefore having less weight and further improved cooling as well as very low internal resistance in exchange for surprisingly high output power. The ZX V2 motor also incorporates ‘maximum low resistance copper wire’ that allows low internal resistance which results in large power output increase.
Speedzone have released this 7200mAh 100C LiPo Pack to their Peerless Series Line. Coming in standard 2S dimensions and meeting ROAR, EFRA, BRCA and IFMAR specs the packs are available with 4mm bullet connectors as well as pre-wired packs with Deans and Traxxas style plugs.
