I want to order the gforce motory analyzer but would like some clarity on the product.

Mainly want to check 21.5 and 17.5 motors to verify timing and amp draw. Thank you.

1. New checker can go up to 70 Deg.?
2. Voltage requirements for 21.5, does it have to be 9v or 12v?
3. Voltage requrements for 17.5, will a fully charge lipo suffice?
4. Max voltage the checker can take, manual says 8.4?

1. New checker can go up to 70 Deg.? Yes
2. Voltage requirements for 21.5, does it have to be 9v or 12v? To check the timing on a 21.5 it WILL require 12V. It has to see a certain Amp draw and RPM to check the timing and wont do that on a 2S lipo.
3. Voltage requrements for 17.5, will a fully charge lipo suffice? See the answer above as it is the same for 17.5.
4. Max voltage the checker can take, manual says 8.4?
No it can run off of 12V but its not recommended to do an RPM check at that voltage. Just the timing check.




It will run any motor off of a 2S lipo. But in order to do the timing check it will need to reach a certain RPM and amp draw to run the test so it may require a 9-12V input to achieve this.

Do do a regular check (RPM, KV, Amp draw) just a normal 2S is perfectly fine.

Default New Lipo Sacks

I just received the new Team EAM Lipo sacks! These are made the proper way to help reduce flames and increase safety when charging a lipo and something goes bad wrong. They will hold 2 2S packs for travel but only 1 can be in it when charging.

I'll have them up on the site here in a little bit.

So +3 1/2 means you are rotating the endbell clockwise instead of counter clockwise?

lol I realize this sounds ridiculous - it is simply that I've only ever used motors that you turn counter clockwise.

all motors will turn the same way to advance the timing. Some you turn the endbell some you turn just the sensor board part itself. The endplate on the RX3 turns counter clockwise (The line will move toward the plus sign on the endplate) to advance the timing.

Can you get Lee speed tool sets? Looking for a set in yellow if the price is reasonable.

Thanks!
