Yuki Model from Germany have introduced their new limited edition 3200kV B4 motor and controller combo set. The 60A rated power pack consists of a water-resistant 3S LiPo-compatible controller and a 3200kV sensorless motor. Both come pre-wired with a T-type battery connector and bullet-style motor plugs and the controller is programmable using Yuki Model’s optional programming box.
Coming from Arrowmax and made for Sanwa’s MT-44 radio is a 3.7V 3200mAh transmitter battery pack. The single cell LiPo battery measures 60x40x10mm and it comes pre-wired with a Sanwa-compatible connector. The battery is both light of weight yet offers massive capacity for long operation times.
Hobbywing have introduced their new XeRun series Axe brushless power system for crawlers and trail trucks. Featuring the new FOC Field-oriented Control technology, that is understood to match the motor RPM with the throttle position, the system allows for greatly improved car control especially on downhill sections while making the system more silent, higher performing and more reliable. The motor, with a newly developed staggered pole design, ensures consistent deceleration, smoother power supply, smoother brake control and an overall greatly improved throttle feeling. The whole system is IP-67 waterproof for go-everywhere capabilities right out of the package and the controller is programmable using Hobbywing’s iOS or Android apps and using the speedo’s build-in Bluetooth module.
Coming from GL Racing is their new 3500kV HT brushless motor for 1/28th micro cars. Somewhere in the middle of kV ratings for a micro-size motor the power plant will offer linear power control, high efficiency and lots of torque for smaller circuits. The 15mm diameter motor uses dual Japanese-made ball bearings and it fits Kyosho’s Mini-Z VE cars as fellas many other 1/28th scale cars on the market.
New from Etronix is the Power Analyzer 2, a simple, cost-effective tool that allows accurate and repeatable measurements of electrical units such as current draw and power. In addition the battery voltage, both of individual cells and the overall pack, the energy consumption, and temperature can be measured. The device also features an integrated cell balancer function, allowing to keep battery packs in optimum condition at all times. The Power Analyzer 2 is supplied with pre-tinned wires, so simply fit the connectors of choice prior to use.
Coming from Arrowmax and made for Futaba transmitters such as the 7PX, 4PX, 4PK and 4PV is a 2400mAh 6.6V LiFe battery. The softcase pack measures 73x40x16mm and it has the perfect size for the above radios with the high capacity ensuring long operation times. The battery comes pre-wired with a a Futaba-compatible connector and a standard balancer plug for secure charging and balancing.
During this week’s 2018 Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan O.S. Engines are presenting their new O.S. Speed branded sensored brushless motors and speed controller. The sensored competition motors are housed in a nicely machined 2-tone aluminium can with large cooling openings, heavy duty solder tabs and all-aluminium timing end cap. It is understood that the motors will become available in all popular modified and stock windings. Over to the O.S. Speed brushless speed controller, the device comes in an all-black design with a machined alloy case as well as black power, capacitor and receiver wires for a stealthy factory look. An external programming box allows to fine-tune the speed’s software and a large fan keeps the operation temperatures down. On the nitro side of things the iconic Japanese manufacturer shows off its new 4-shoe nitro off-road clutch that is tuneable with a total of three different hardness springs and two alloy clutch shoe types.
Arrowmax have introduced their new Dash 30mm aluminium fan for the use with their range of brushless speed controllers. The fan unit is housed in a machined aluminium case for high durability and professional looks and it features Dash’s signature black and golden anodising. The high-speed fan greatly improves heat dissipation with the fan’s alloy case further improving the cooling effect, it is a direct fit for Dash’s BL speedos and many other speed controllers and it comes including four gold colour mounting screws.
