Team Orion Vortex Neon 550 motor

The new Vortex Neon 550 is the latest 4-pole sensorless brushless motor from Team Orion. Using the experience gained from their 540 sized motors, Orion developed the new 550 version with the needs of off-road racers in mind. Robustness was achieved by building the motor around a massive aluminium case using quality screws. The 550 size motor is best suited for 1/10 off-road applications and is available in a 2400KV and 3800KV version with 3mm or 5mm axle. In the combo they combine this motor with the brand new and waterproof Vortex R10 SC WP ESC which gives you outstanding performance and control.
