Exclamation new Orion Revolution (V2) Modified Motors

Team Orion's Revolution modified motors advance brush and endbell design to a new level. This completely new and revolutionary V2 technology is already taking the racing world by storm by setting new standards in power output, efficiency and longevity. Even though some concepts are revised versions of existing designs, many have never before been incorporated into R/C electric motors. This is evident in the fact that the Revolution has earned patent pending for 7 innovations but all in one patent!



Angled (V) brush orientation reduces brush bounce, resulting in increased brush and commutator life while extra contact area increases brush efficiency. This angle spreads the load between the motor spring and the brush guidance tube. Therefore spring tension can be reduced resulting in less friction, higher RPM, and increased efficiency.



Cylindrical brushes allow smoother brush overlap resulting in less arcing, which increases performance and reduces the likelihood of radio interference. Commutators develop fewer scars increasing the interval between commutator service and brush changes. Competition brushes last up to 12 times longer!



Precision CNC aluminium endbell provides additional cooling which extends the life of the motor's components. By lowering brush and spring temperatures, performance and consistency are maximized. Unlike plastic moulds that will wear out over time, CNC machining consistently produces the precision required in a hand wound modified motor. Round pure copper brush control tubes offer ultra low resistance, precision fit, and due to their close proximity to the commutator, increase brush stability.



Direct soldering reduces resistance resulting in more power and longer run times. Brush shunts and ESC wires are both soldered directly to the pure copper brush tubes creating a direct connection between your motor and electronics



Airflow cooling lowers operating temperatures. Strategically placed vents work in conjunction with the Ultra Flow motor can to circulate air through the motor. Lower motor temperatures reduce resistance, which increases power.



Inboard capacitor system with LED reduces the possibility of radio interference. A small circuit board containing three integrated capacitors is installed inside the endbell for extra protection. A small LED is also incorporated into the design to verify proper capacitor operation, indicate correct motor rotation, and help view the commutator conditions as the motor is running. It also looks extremely trick!

Intelligent anti-vibration spring system created with springs made of Inox steel formed in an unequal length coil to prevent vibration. The use of Inox, the most heat resistant steel, means consistent spring tension, hot or cold. Available in four different tensions, fine-tuning is easy to achieve



Zero vibration ball bearing system prevents vibrations from reaching the commutator. By mounting the endbell ball bearing between o-rings, ball bearing induced vibrations are prevented. The result is the elimination of power robbing brush bounce.

Swiss precision is recognized worldwide. The V2 endbell system is designed, developed, and produced in Switzerland.

Long life and power brushes available to suit any application. Two serrated face brush compounds are currently available with additional compounds and styles already in development.



Meets IFMAR, JMRCA, EFRA, BRCA, and ROAR specifications - suitable for use worldwide!

I wonder how well these motors work? I wonder if the ultimate brushed motor would be:

Reedy Quad Magnet Can

Orion V2 Endbell

Trinity 'Flatwire' Armature.

Has anyone done this yet?

Calvin,

I saw a thread on Orion's site that "try's" to explain the difference.

http://www.team-orion.com/toptalk/sh...d&Number=11775

Thickness in wire on the Hara and Jukka editions and less efficent. See link for more details....

i was talking to someone who works for Orion this past weekend... told me that there is a difference in profile/shape of the armature blank between the Jukka and Hara...

Jukka is designed for offroad, Hara for onroad..

I have been a fan of Orion motors for a while now...looking forward to this one..

I just wish that the touring series motors would go lower turns than 10. I dont see why they make a 6 turn for offroad, and only a 10 for onroad

ive had good experience with orion motors - my old 11x3 chrome touring is still going strong for 1/12 duty. i hope the new series of orion motors will perform just as nicely. i was about to get a new motor (either a kr or d5), good thing i waited for this. ill just have to wait some more until it arrives in our lhs the downside is, what should i do with all my standard brushes ? i hope someone comes up with a jig to convert them into round brushes

Looks like the Hara's go down to 6 as well:
29060 Revolution Hara Pro Edition Motor 6X1
29061 Revolution Hara Pro Edition 7X1
29062 Revolution Hara Pro Edition 8X1
29063 Revolution Hara Pro Edition 9X1

Hopefully they will perform as good as they look. Wonder how long it will take them to put this technology into 19t and 27t spec motors (if ever).

Default Comm ??

How are you gonna cut the comm ?? Could we use our regular comm cutter or do we have to buy another lathe ??

I believe it is still a standard sized armature so regular lathes will work.
