Tianhao UFO brushless motors

Chinese manufacturer Tianhao, better known for their FGX Rabbit chassis, have introduced their all new UFO 540 type brushless motors. Not your standard configuration, the UFO motor sees the sensor and timing plate placed at the shaft end of the motor with a vented end bell at the rear end, which in a touring car sits in an area of high airflow. This new layout not only brings the wires into a more convenient spot but more importantly allows the heat built up in the can to escape unobstructed, making a more efficient motor. The motors are available in both anodized black or blue and Tianhao have a full range of winds as well as a range of 550 motors for short course.
