Default Motor Run In tool

Hi All,

I have just got the new futaba cdr5000 charger and its an awesome piece of kit but it does not seem to have a motor run in feature which my turbo 35 did have.

So what products can you recommend for running in motors i have a robi dyno so i dont really need a motor checker but i will get one if i have too.

Any suggestions.

all i use is a run in fan and a mrt vpc varible psu my personel oppinon is if your experienced enough to be using dynos you should be able to tell if a motor is run in just by looking at the com and brushes a lot of the product are gimminks to make you bye them it would be much better to save your money and spend it on a set of tyres they will deffintly improve race results.

it is mainly for when i skim and dont replace brushes, just to bed them in a bit instead of running the motor on 2 cells for a few minutes.

I find the brushes burn up quicker if they are not run in.

im not saying don't run them in!

i would use the mrt vpc it will cost you arond 25 and you can run your lathe do your motors and the 7.2volt soldering irons etc.

You can just connect your motor to a 3 cell pack if you want to break in the brushes.
