Hobbywing Stock Spec Nationals – Announcement

PDX RC Underground has announced it will be hosting the inaugural Hobbywing Stock Spec Nationals.  The unique event will see all classes use handout Hobbywing Justock fixed timing motors.  The brainchild of this event, and the owner of PDX Underground Kevin Focht explains, “We started running 17.5 spec at the track, and I was thinking that there has never been a national event where everyone was running a handout motor. The thought of having everyone going the same speed intrigued me, and I thought it would be a true racers event. I immediately hit up Hobbywing, and they were excitedly on board!”  There will only be 4 classes for the event – 17.5 Buggy, 13.5 4wd Buggy, 13.5 Stadium Truck and 13.5 Short Course Truck.  All will be using handout Hobbywing Justock motors. Esc’s will be blinky and all other ROAR rules apply. Entries will be limited due to the hand out motors.  PDX RC Underground are excited to announce that 4 time World Champion Ryan Cavalieri will be attending and racing the event.

Hobbywing Tunalyzer Motor Tuner

Describing it as ‘The next-generation tool for motor testing and tuning’ Hobbywing has unveiled the Tunalyzer Motor Tuner.  It is used to test the brushless DC motor and its internal components and can measure the Kv value, rpm, current, end-bell timing and sensor elements of the brushless motor.  These parameters can be is played on the LCD in real time, so that you can have an intuitive and full understanding of the motor used.  In addition, the built-in Bluetooth of the Tunalyzer can establish communication with the esc through the mobile phone app to realise the parameter setting and firmware updating of the esc.

Hobbywing EZRun Mini28 speed controller

Hobbywing introduce their new EZRun Mini28 speed controller built specifically for 1/28 scale racing. The ESC is extremely small (22mm by 14mm) and lightweight at only 5 grams and the shape is designed for ease of soldering and reducing unnecessary tweak, an important factor for a 1/28th scale racing car. The fully-alloy heat sink ensures that the ESC can dissipate heat and operates at a healthy temperature range while the maximum output current can be up to 30A. The ESC has many adjustable parameters, including PWM frequency, brake frequency, softening, Boost, Turbo and much more. It is equipped with two usage modes, the Zero-Timing which is more commonly known as ‘blinky’ and the ‘modified’ mode which allows power-hungry users to increase additional turbo timing in the software. The ESC also has a built-in BEC which can support a maximum output current of up to 3.5A and the output voltage at either 6V or 7.4V. This will ensure constant power supplied to today’s high-torque servos in the market. Simple and convenient, parameter settings, firmware upgrading and other operations can be established using Hobbywing’s OTA Bluetooth module and your mobile phone via the Hobbywing app.

Hobbywing XeRun V10 G4 motor

Hobbywing have announced their latest motor release, the XeRun V10 G4. Built for the ultra competitive Stock racing category, the V10 G4 has been tested and developed together with World and European champions. This new generation has been greatly optimised with the stator being redesigned for higher efficiency and is equipped with ultra high grade custom magnetic ring rotor for maximum torque and increasing the output power by 5%. The internal resistance has also been reduced by about 4% resulting in a more efficient and cooler temperature of the motor. The motor adopts a full exposed stator core and is directly exposed to the air for excellent heat dissipation. The outer diameter is maximised to increase the stator heat dissipation area by 25.6% compared to the V10 G3R motor. The motor is equipped with a high-precision endbell plate that uses high quality structural components to greatly improve the consistency and structural stability of the power output at all times. The V10 G4 adpots a modular structural design which is convenient for maintenance which prolongs the service life of the motor.

Hobbywing sign Michal Orlowski to factory team

Hobbywing has announced that multiple off-road European champion Michal Orlowski is joining forces with the Hobbywing factory team. He will use Hobbywing ESCs and motors to participate in all electric car competitions from the first day of year 2022. The 20 year old Polish driver has achieved great results in both off-road and on-road events, including 2019 IFMAR Worlds podium finish in 1/10 off-road 4WD class and 2020 IFMAR 1/12 on-road championship TQ and vice champion. He also had the double wins in 2019/2020 EOS 1/10 2wd and 4wd class. He had this to say, ‘I am looking forward to working together with the Hobbywing factory team in 2022! The product speaks for itself and I cannot wait to use its full potential at the race track. I would like to thank everyone at Hobbywing for this fantastic opportunity.’

Hobbywing Xerun XR10 Pro & Pro-Elite G2S ESC

Hobbywing have released their new Xerun XR10 Pro G2S and Pro-Elite G2S speed controllers. The Pro G2S sports Hobbywing’s patented frameless fan design with the Pro Elite version utilising the standard top mounted fan. The G2S sports a high-performance 32-bit M4 microprocessor which greatly improves processing capability and allow the ESC to have a very rapid response and the potential to optimise and extend its functions. The Throttle and Brake PWM Frequency support the ability to customise the frequency of each throttle segments. For example, the variables on the frequency are fully adjustable for precise control to meet the requirements of different driver need. The parameters are optimised for top-level competition applications, including new AC line switching, initial start-up force adjustment, drag acceleration adjustment, etc.

Hobbywing XeRun D10 drift series motors

Following the release of their drift specific XeRun XD10 Pro ESC, Hobbywing have now introduced these new drift series XeRun D10 motors. Like the ESC the motor is also available in black, red and purple. Internally, the new motor stator is optimised for drift and improves motor efficiency in drift applications. A built-in high-precision sensor board, combined with drift-specific fan rotors, provide excellent motor linearity and drivability while greatly improves motor efficiency. The 10.5T motor weighs approximately 158g while the 13.5T is at 165g (including 3 gold insert weights). The lightweight motor allows user to easily tweak their weight bias on their car. A neat feature is the the rotor is equipped with a fan that provides great heat dissipation. The special-shaped gold fan on the rotor cools the motor while making a pleasant sound, especially when Turbo is turned on. Optional rotors are available. The motor comes factory soldered with high quality 3.5mm banana plug for easy access swap to different motors with the 3.5mm male also included in the XD10 ESC.
