The 12.5 rotor came as a surprise, considering that I thought I was buying a motor with a 12.3 rotor. It wasn't until I read the instructions that I realized that Actiniums were equipped w/ 12.5 rotors from the factory. Several retailers' sites lead you to believe that you're buying a 12.3 rotor, when in fact it's not an option.

That said, this motor ran respectably during my first test - I still need to play with gearing to find the sweet spot.

The Actinium 17.5T Brushless Motor got its first TQ + Win at Jackson RC yesterday. This motor is very nice. I don't think I've hit on the magical gearing/setup for it yet-- but out of the box w/o any shim adjustment it is great! We had 4+ Powers motors make the 17.5 A-Main yesterday.

Awesome.

The Actinium modified motors are just as good. I believe they are about a wind faster than the Plutonium, which were great motors as well. I've gone to a slightly boosted 5.5 instead of the Plutonium 4.5 with great results.

If anyone would like my motor, speed control setup just let me know. I have setups for Radon, HobbyWing 3.1 and the older Speed Passion GT2.0.

Best,
Ethan

Yes - The new Actinium motor comes with a 12.5mm rotor from the factory. The older Plutonium model can be purchased with either a 12.3mm or 12.5mm rotor installed.

Thanks for the quick reply! Their web site is a bit confusing where it has under specs - 12.5mm x 24mm(3.5turn~9.5turn), ~12.3mm x 24mm(10.5turn~17.5turn)

But further down it says - Come with option 12.5mm roar spec rotor

Default V1 13.5 Gearing/Timing

Browsed through the thread and haven't really found what I'm looking for referencing my questions.

Running on a 80X40 track and just bolted in my 13.5 (blinky) non boosted or turbo.

Looking for "what you guys found" is the optimized performance range referring to FDR and timing on the V1 13.5?

Currently at 4.57 FDR and timing is maxed, I'm thinking I need to add a tooth or two? Motor is coming off around 130's. However it feels darn close how it is now.

Thanks

As per the Team Powers website:
Weight: ~165g (5g lighter than the old version)

FWIW - Mine weighed in @168.

A little confused about the timing on Actinium motors. To my eyes it looks like each "hash" mark = 4 degrees. So cranking the timing all the way positive it would be 36 degrees (9 marks x 4 degrees each) I am figuring this by looking at the timing marks on some other motors as degrees are degrees when motors have virtually the same OD.

Can anyone verify the timing numbers on a 17.5 Actinium? Looking forward to trying it this Sat, I have a ballpark of FDR & timing I want to start with but it'd be nice to have some numbers to give me an idea.

Timing all the way up, FDR 3.7. You'll have more than enough power...

That sounds like a plan!

(that thumbs down was a mistake--supposed to be a thumbs up)
