Team Orion Launches Brushless Motor NOVEMBER 2001

Updated November 28, 2001—Yorba Linda, CA
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.

The Team Orion brushless motor must be used in combination with a brushless motor controller. The use of the new sensorless technology allows the use of any controller as long it has been designed for sensorless, brushless motors. There are several manufacturers providing these at a price similar to a high end ESC. Look for Team Orion’s own sensorless controller in the near future.

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:

ROAR Carpet Oval Nats

Halo Hobbies in Toledo, Ohio hosted the ROAR 2005 Carpet Oval Nationals for the left-turn-only crowd. Ninety-one entries dispersed over 7 classes set the tone for the action. When the tire traction compound haze settled and the final groove laid into the carpet, six new national champions were crowned. Tom Postalwait set the bar by taking the 1/12 stock and 1/12 19-turn modified titles. Also taking home the checkers were Corey Heft in 1/10 19-turn modified, Arnie Fie in the 1/10 modified, Chris Ulbrik in 1/10 Stock, and Phil Beardshear in the first-run Brushless class. Halo Hobbies’ owner Josh Cyrul (yes, that Josh Cyrul) won 1/12 Mod.
