iSDT SC-620 multi-chemistry DC charger

iSDT SC-620 multi-chemistry DC charger

Yuki Model have introduced the iSDT SC-620 multi-chemistry DC charger. At 9 to 30VDC input the device allows for up to 20A of charge current thanks to its powerful 500W circuitry while 15W of discharge power make discharge rates of up to 5A possible. An integrated 1A balancer for up to 6S LiPo packs makes for swift, safe and convenient charging and balancing of LiXX battery packs and the charger is also usable with the latest generation LiHV packs. Sporting a plastic case, measuring 115x130x52mm and weighing in at 289g the device is a pretty compact affair and it becomes available by end of September.

SkyRC Toro X8T V2 1/8th truggy brushless motor

SkyRC Toro X8T V2 1/8th truggy brushless motor

SkyRC have introduced their new Toro X8T V2 brushless motor for 1/8th scale E-truggies. The 6-pole 1950kv motor is of a 18-slot stator design for improved torque while high-purity copper windings and ultra-thin 0.2mm stator laminations make for high efficiency, resulting in reduced heat built-up and longer run times. The sensorless motor utilises a machined T6 billet aluminium can with heatsink ribbing and it measures 42.2x74mm including said heatsink.

WTF BTA ESC fan mount version 2

WTF Bat ESC fan mount version 2

Coming from Wild Turbo Fan is the version 2 BTA speed controller fan mount. Offering a revised fan angle and new carbon fibre guides the mount now channels the cooling air better towards the controller’s heat sink and the motor. The mount fits both 25mm and 30mm ESC mounting patterns and the whole assembly weighs in at only 2.7g without fan.

Scorpion Vanguard S3-80 Turbo Stock speed controller

Scorpion Vanguard S3-80 Turbo Stock speed controller

Scorpion have introduced their new Vanguard S3-80 Turbo Stock brushless speed controller. Building on the S3-140 Modify and S3-80 Super Stock ESCs the new Turbo Stock was especially developed for demanding Stock class racing with 8.5T to 25.5T motors and it offers a wide range of timing and turbo adjustments to make it usable for competitive boosted class racing. The controller is built using military-spec components, it utilises an aluminium heatsink case and features a 6V/3A BEC system, multiple protection features and it is usable with both sensored and sensorless motors. The V-Link cable for easy setup using a PC and a high-speed cooling fan are available optionally.

Trinity introduce Motolyser DC 1S booster

Trinity introduce Motolyser DC 1S booster

Trinity have introduced the Motolyser DC 1S booster for all 1S LiPo battery classes. Super small and of a low weight the voltage booster allows to run 1S LiPo-powered 1/12th and 1/10th scale cars without the need for an additional, and heavy, receiver battery pack. The booster features an on/off switch that is mounted right on the PCB for improved durability and reliability and it was used by TQ Marc Rheinard and new IFMAR World Champion, Naoto Matsukura, among others, during this week’s Electric On-road World Championships.

Ruddog 30mm & 40mm fan units with all-black wire

Ruddog 30mm & 40mm fan units with all-black wire

New from Ruddog come a total of three motor and speed controller fan units. The 30mm high airflow fan comes with a pre-wired 240mm all-black receiver cable while the larger 40mm units come either pre-wired with a 240mm all-black cable or as DIY variant with solder tabs and a separate 180mm wire. The latter allows to reduce the wire length by your own or to change the wire in case it got damaged over time. All fans utilise universal connectors and they are available now.

SkyRC Toro X8 V2 1/8th scale brushless motor

SkyRC Toro X8 V2 1/8th scale brushless motor

SkyRC have introduced their new Toro X8 V2 electric brushless motor for 1/8th scale applications. The sensorless motor is housed in a CNC-machined T6 billet aluminium heatsink can and it is of a 6-pole, 18-slot stator design for a high-torque, high-power output. Utilising super high conductance silicon wires, a sintered neodymium magnet rotor and high purity copper windings the motor also offers high efficiency for low operation temperatures. The X8 V2 is available in a 2100kv and a 2400kv variant soon.

Pro-Spec introduce new brushless speed controller

Pro-Spec introduce new brushless speed controller

Japanese company Pro-Spec have introduced their new brushless speed controller, developed in cooperation with ORCA. Currently still in prototype stages, also sporting the original ORCA case, the internals are redesigned to offer a smoother power band without sacrificing punch when needed. Also the brake software was renewed, again to smooth out the reactions on brake input but like the throttle characteristics the brake output can be sharpened when conditions call for it. The final ESC may come with an updated case design and we bring you more information on the project once they become available.
