New from Viper R/C Solutions come the VST Black Edition sensored brushless motors. Available in a wide range of turns from 3.5T to 21.5T, the Black Edition motors offer a completely redesigned all-aluminium structure for 10 percent lighter weight and 15 to 20 percent more RPM and thus higher overall performance compared to the last generation VST motors. The design of the ROAR approved and IFMAR compliant motors incorporates a vented 6061-T6 alloy motor can, with a wide range of tuning rotors being available to fine-tune the performance.

Muchmore introduce the Fleta ZX 3.5T 1:12 World Champion Spec brushless motor built to the same specifications as used by Marc Rheinard to win the 2014 IFMAR 1/12th scale World Championship title. Housed in a full aluminium can with large airflow holes the motor features a redesigned stator and 12.0mm rotor to make for higher RPM, a super-mild power curve and a low running temperature. The rear timing end plate sports a specially designed protector for the sensor wire and connector that saves all parts from harm.

New from SkyRC comes the Motor Analyser, a device to test and fine-tune electric brushless motors. The motor tester offers KV measurement, voltage, RPM and Amp draw tests as well as timing and hall sensor checks together with a noise level test that allows to draw conclusions on the conditions of the ball bearings. Coming in a sturdy aluminium case the device sports a back-lit display, jog dial menu operation and it includes an array of wires such as a sensor cable, motor connection wires and power input adapters.

GForce introduce the Mini Break-in system for mini and micro-size brushed motors. Designed for the use with Tamiya’s Mini 4WD series of “slot cars”, the system is also usable for the brushed motors found in Kyosho’s Mini-Z or HPI’s Micro RS4 line of vehicles. The motor run-in system is housed in a sturdy case with a jog dial to adjust the output voltage and also a timer that stops the run-in process after a certain time. A non-slip foam pad and a velcro strap prevent the chassis or motor from moving around and the break-in device is powered by four AA-size batteries or an optional power supply.
