It works for brush and brushless motors.

You can save and graph as many motor as you want.

Its easy to build.
I use a watt meter with it only for brushless motor when adding boost to find voltage drop in my battery packs.

Not really, they all operate the same. Just buy whichever one you can find at the best price.

The trinity is the better unit of them really, as its RPM stand is stand alone, so you don't have to hold the motor steady inside the unit and hope you are not rubbing the sensor you put on the motor....even if you have the little stand they sold, its still awkward.

And to anyone looking for a tekin dyno

http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...amond-bit.html

$125 and you get a lathe and an orion motor checker, which is actually fairly rare, as not a ton were made. You can sell the lathe to a crawler guy for $50 or so pretty easy....say the Orion is worth $40....whats that make the tekin? Can't be that good of a deal anyways, its STILL for sale.

Later EddieO

hello siliver can gurus. I have just aquired an old m02 shelf queen.It has an 4 slot siliver can. looks to be in very good condition. I've been told this motor is faster than the newer johnson silver cans. Is this true?

Statistically, yes, when compared to 2 slot motors of the same period.

Four can motors tended to develop more RPM than the 2 slot Johnson 540's that came a little later, but the newer Johnson 540's with the CS brush that have been around for the last two years are as good if not better.

Your right rccardr!
They are a better motor at least what I have ran to be true.

They are stamped 'CS' on the side of the brush. Look in through the vent on the can, might have to use a flshlight to see in there. They are only stamped on one side, you might have to look in both vents to determine.

Pretty much every new #53689 out there for sale these days has CS brushes, they made the production change about two years ago.

Default CS

Are the letters CS initials for Silver Can backwards?

You can pick them up on Ebay pretty cheap, works better with the optional motor stand though.
