[QUOTE=ShadowAu;3891902]TOTALLY DON'T see the point of this motor or some of the arguments behind it.
The whole idea of 540 is that its CHEAP to run and get started in... here in Australia the motors are about $15 and an ESC more than good enough to run a 540 at club level would set you back about $50. Unless someone is about to bring out a $50 Brushless ESC then you are still looking $200+ for an ESC to run it, not to mention that, if it stays true to Novak pricing, it will be at least $100 for the motor.
Well said, im not sure why the silver 540 needs a brushless equivilent. At 10-20$ a pop any currency and a 40-60$ ESC with, now lets be real, zero maint for a 540, when i started the hobby there was no info no internet we ran those 540s for years withought oil... A brushless system is in the 200$ range a far cry from the silver can with sport esc.
What we need is a ROAR Stock brushless rule
PS: No need to point out wich motor to use 13.5 or 17.5... that dont matter what matters is that all the motors that classify in the roar stock rules must be built under the same rules.
