The NEO motors came with the wire.
The only thing is once you have one you really don't need more, its kind of a waste.

Those parts have not been available domestically for quite some time. I don't see an item# for a sensor wire offered by Orion .

Regardless, we need some sensor wires bad...we just received our first shipment of Orion motors and almost everyone here runs the Novak GTB.

Stormer has a couple of them last time I checked. Get 'em quick. What a blunder, shipping to the US with no sensor wires, and not even the option to buy them. This should be exciting.

Note: When it rotates it sounds like something is horribly wrong, like the pinion mating up with a stripped spur, but dont worry, it just sounds like that. Very distintive sound, like no other brushless.
Ran my Vortex 4.5 this weekend at our first Nationals Series, TQ'ed and won all three mains!
The motor was faster than anything else on the track, no doubt
Ran against Novak 3.5's and LRP 3.5's, Very Very satisfied with the motor!!

My motor has very litle sound, just whistles, very cool

Can hardly wait to get to the track again for some more testing, this was really fun!!

Hi guys, not using a brushless before, what would you recommend for 1/12th circuit? I am used to running 9's and 10's brushed so what is the equilivant brushless? Cheers, Chris.

PS, what speedo would you use with one of the Orion brushless motors? Sorry for all the questions but have n't used them before!

either LRP Competition or the new novak GTB for 4 cells, as far as a motor the 5.5 is plenty fast, 4.5 and 3.5 are a bit overkill!!

I geared the motor 8.8 with 6 cells and 7.9 with 5 cells (I tested both)
Ended up running 6 cells as this gave me more runtime laptimes where about the same actually...

This was on a medium size track.

As for speed control, I used the new Nosram TC Spec... Great Speedo!!!
