Hobbywing have introduced the new XeRun XR10 Justock brushless speed controller and Justock 3650 sensored brushless motor. Starting with the controller, the device was especially designed with zero timing/boost racing in mind. Featuring an aluminium upper case with built-in heatsink and making use of internal heat-conductive copper plates the controller stays cool even in high ambient temperatures and in demanding racing conditions. The small footprint allows the controller to be used in a range of classes including touring cars, 1/12th and formula cars and the single-button setup helps to fine-tune the software settings. As usual the controller’s firmware can be updated using the Hobbywing USB Link software and the LCD Program box.

Team Orion have introduced their all-new dDrive 2-in-1 brushless power unit for 1/10th scale on-road and off-road vehicles. The revolutionary system combines a highly efficient and very powerful 4-pole brushless motor and a brushless controller in one simple to use package. Coming from the mind of Oscar Jansen the unit is used in place for the usual motor and is very easy to setup while the integrated system uses only a minimal amount of wires for improved reliability and less hassle especially for beginners. The integrated controller offers three different drive modes, user-adjustable performance settings, overheat protection and low-voltage cut-off while the 4-pole motor is housed in an aluminium heatsink can. The 58mm long unit is splash-proof, it comes pre-wired with a T-type connector and it is available as 2700kv and 3000kv variant.

During this week’s EFRA 1/8th Gas Offroad European Championship Italian company Reds Racing have their forthcoming TX120 1/10th scale brushless speed controller on show. Known for their successful range of nitro engines Reds Racing recently also stepped into electric propulsion with the release of their 1/8th and 1/10th scale brushless motors. As for the speed controller, the TX120 was developed with a focus especially on 13.5T stock racing and a good brake feel, but the speedo will also work with modified motors down to 3.0T. Measuring 31.38x19mm and weighing in at 45g the 2S LiPo-compatible and 120A-rated ESC offers 6V/3A BEC output and it sports all-black wires for a pro-level look. Also available will be a dedicated programming box that allows to adjust the software parameters that, from what is understood, will include class-standard items such as timing and turbo functions beside others. More detailed information about both products will become available in time for the release.
