From Castle Creations:
Castle Creations Inc., the leader in electronic speed controllers (ESCs) and BLDC motors for radio controlled (R/C) car, air, and multi-rotor hobby markets, as well as commercial UAV and drone markets, has been providing award winning brushless sensorless motors to R/C enthusiasts worldwide for more than a decade. In response to overwhelming requests, a new line of LOW KV BRUSHLESS SENSORED motors will be available soon.
Months of hard work went into these LOW KV CRAWLER, SCALER, TRAILTRUCK and ULTRA4 specific 1406 “short” cans. Focus was placed on several aspects to cater to the wishes of everyone who loves to crawl. With slate colored cans these motors are less noticeable in scale trucks yet deliver MONSTROUS TORQUE and PRECISE THROTTLE CONTROL, plus the RAW POWER and LONGER RUN TIMES that Castle’s highly efficient brushless motors are known to produce. These motors mark a new product line for Castle Creations which emphasizes focus on low RPM control. Combined with our X series speed controllers (Mamba Micro X, Mamba X, Mamba Monster X) these motors will enable users to fine tune and set the controllability of their ride to the maximum, or even use the auxiliary wire to toggle between drag brake settings for example.
Without a robust and reliable design, efficiency will only go so far. Oversized NMB bearings and a vibration dampening system were used to guarantee the longest bearing life possible. High-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with a high-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions. A proprietary winding technique is also used to produce a stator assembly that is the lowest possible resistance, resulting in a cooler running and longer lasting motor.
Key features of the new LOW KV SENSORED MOTORS include:
- Designed and supported in Olathe, KS USA.
- 4-POLE 12-SLOT design boasts exceptional EFFICIENCY and produces LESS HEAT.
- QUIETSENSE™ technology shields the sensors from magnetic field noise through the use of a FLUX SHIELD™ in conjunction with secondary Sense Magnets delivering even HIGHER PRECISION and MORE EFFICIENT startups.
REBUILDABLE design allows users to replace front end bell/bearing assembly or rotor/shaft assembly.
- Conformal coated sensor board offers a level of WATER RESISTANCE1 unparalleled in the sensored crawler market.
- ROAR standard sensor port and labeled connections.
- When paired with a Castle Creations X-Series ESC, like the MAMBA MICRO X, MAMBA X or MAMBA MONSTER X, you can unlock2 advanced OPTIMIZED FEATURES that Castle Link3 provides specifically for CRAWLER, SCALER, TRAIL TRUCK AND ULTRA4 enthusiasts. CRAWLER MODE, ROCK RACE MODE and ADJUSTABLE DRAG BRAKE are new auxiliary wire modes designed to allow users to get the most of their ESC when used in rock racing or rock crawling vehicles.
Castle Creations’ initial release of four low Kv sensored motors will begin shipping in late April from Olathe, Kansas.
