Default Brushless questions

hey guys late starter here with the brushless gig.

my question is if you have a LRP sphere comp or TC can you run orion brushless or novak brushless motors of all turns on that speedo?

vice versa with novak speedo with lrp, orion brushless motors of all turns?

only reason i am asking is that my lhs, told me that you cant run the lrp with a novak 13.5 with the sphere, because novak does something different with the motors. finding it odd that you couldnt, but no experience and dont want to blow up a 180speedo.

thanks guys.

hmmm... I have a sphere by lrp and a 13.5 by novak. just switched to it on tuesday from my gtb. seemed to run just fine. I believe they are interchangable either way. the only way I know for certain, because I have done it, is the lrp will run novak motors though.

Novak,LRP, and Orion(peak) motors are all interchangeable. They will work with any sensored speed control from LRP-Novak. Hope this helps.

Another thing to note may be the Turn of the motor and the ESC's motor limit?

I have a sphere comp with a 6.5
I just bought A GTB & two ss13.5's.
I ran ready 3star(6.5) with gtb it works the same as my sphere comp.
Then I put a 13.5 on each they also seem the same.
the comp handles BL over 4Turns , TC over 3 , gtb no limit.
all sensored items should work together.
the only thing I did notice is the sphere's brake is stronger......
....or the gtb is weaker however you look at it.
but I'm sure that can be changed in the settings.
