Arrow Brushed or Brushless?

Please post your suggestion. Keep in mind, brushless motors will hurt the RC market as they are low maintence and they last forevever, well at least somewhat forever.

Futureal, if you could, please convert this thread to a poll.

edit - thought it might give me the poll option after I clicked "save changes" but it didn't. Proudwinner didn't post anything bad

Default Humm....

Should I worry about the clutter of RC brushed motor companies? Ones like Trinity, I could care less. Maybe if they were out promoting the RC industry with TV advertisment, but no, they do nothing but promote a race here and there. I hope they have been saving for the future, because the future is with BRUSHLESS.

There will just be a money shift, thats all, people will start to buy other RC products. Thats great, I always wanted to try a RC boat, or get better batteries to race, perhaps try a nitro, and maybe return to the racing scene. That is the biggest thing, some people may want to racing. RCers will continue to spend what they can.

I agree with Nightbreed. I believe people will spend as much as they do now, just on other things. And, I think brushless motors will be good for people that want to begin racing(when BL motors become "legal" that is). you don`t have to worry about gettting the softest/fastest brushes, and there is just less things to worry about

I agree brushless motors I feel will even out the playing field. No more trying to get the right brush/spring combo. Plus these motors with their included speed controls can change how much power they use or allow so you can run the same brushless motor in multiple classes with just a single change to the speedo. Plus they will last and last and last!!!!!

How long are we really talking here in motor life? Given 5-7 runs a weekend, how long will it last? A year? 2 years? Now we need small fuel cells so we could have non-stop 1 hours mains with the speed of 8t.

And Trinity losing money? Who cares. If they had been the racers friend instead of just making a buck off of them I might feel a little different.

True Nightbreed, I never really thought about how the brushless motors would allow us to spend more money on other rc items, that is a good point and like CRASH stated, it will level out the playing field. Those are two good pros about brushless motors. I was just thinking on how big motor companys(ESP, Lightspeed, Axiom) would suffer from the low demand of motors. I'd hate to see these company's leave because of brushless motors.

Companies going the way of the dodo bird is the American way. If they can't find something else to succeed at once their products become obsolete that's just too bad. Bottom line is we are in this to have fun, not subsidize companies that sell products that are designed to wear out in a few uses.

Bring on brushless!

hey guys, just got novaks brushless system. I must say that it is awesome! It accelerates like a modified motor on the stock profile, and lasts 2 minutes longer. Flat batteries will not effect the performance, it just keeps accelerating, until your battery finally dumps. I really think this will be the way of the future, but the only down side is the one time buy of about $250.

Check out the australian thread for Brushless talk. we have certainly been very active in the racing of these.

You want raw speed, get a 6 turn brushless and Comp speedy, rollout of 22mm and go for broke. You will have a smile on your face for about 6 mins.

Very true what a earlier post said. You can practice how ever long you want and not have to worry about your motor wearing out. The best thing I have ever spend money on.

Coxy.
