Default brushless systems out there

just wondering if anyone can tell me some brushless systems from china. i have a chance of getting anything direct from china for cheap. im aware feigao has motors but they dont seem to have esc's. so is there some company that makes decent ones? something that will run brushed and brushless. also are feigao motors decent at all? either sensored or sensoreless.

i never buy anything from china for these reasons.
1) crappy products
2) no warranty
3) no tech support
4) no patent laws, they copy legit company designs and re-produce them with inferior materials
5) they are doing thier best to ruin the world economy

this applies to everything, not just rc.

LOL... Ditto everything Sickboy said especially #4. I've seen a prototype get stolen at a trade show, then the pirated copies are on the market in about two weeks.

Does anyone actually have a system that is NOT made in China? Stuff from China can be good if you have the proper quality controls in place....everything is made there now anyways....

Novak's brushless systems (both motors and speed controls) are designed and produced here in Irvine, CA.

Made to exact specifications, and tested. Not from no name motor sweat shop. That makes a big difference.

Every importer of Chinese-made motors will have a assertion something like this in their marketing copy:

Quote:
Our Team drivers worked closely with our vendor to design and manufacture motors built to our exacting specifications.
