This is Team Orion’s official Vortex press release:The Team Orion Vortex brushless motor utilizes new, sensorless technology. It uses no special wiring to control it. The software of the controller controls everything.

The size is exactly like a normal 540 type motor. It is even within IFMAR rules concerning size and furthermore uses a normal ferrite magnet, which also is within the rules. The shaft is a 3.2 mm and of course accepts standard pinion gears.

A list of controllers compatible with the Vortex will be posted soon, as will more information and performance data as it becomes available!

The Vortex, due to its brushless design, offers the following advantages over brushed motors:
