Default Speed 500, does it need a diode


I bought a Graupner Speed 500 motor today (like Mabuchi). Question is, does it need a Schotki diode with my MMS3/VFS1 speedo? Or am I safe running without one?

You should be safe running without one, those motors are comparable to the sports tuned 540 tamiya produces so they don't draw all that much current
