Fantom FR-8 Pro ESC & ICON 1/8th scale motor

Fantom have introduced their new FR-8 Pro brushless speed controller and ICON Pro brushless motor for 1/8th scale applications. Starting with the speed controller, the FR-8 Pro features a high-performance 32-bit CPU and proprietary firmware, providing the driver with smooth throttle response, exceptional power delivery, and all the adjustable parameters that can be expected from a pro racing ESC. The 3S to 6S LiPo compatible controller is 220A rated, it features a 6V/7.4V, 8A BEC system, 10AWG wires and a 34mm fan unit with aluminium fan cover.

The ICON Pro 1/8th scale motor was developed to produce high yet smooth torque and power delivery from mid to top, it utilises a machined aluminium heatsink design case, sensored technology and a separate magnet ring that insures a clear signal and protects the hall sensing system from other signal interference. The motor is available in 1950kV and 2150kV variants and also including the FR-8 Pro speed controller.
