NO its a Checkpoint motor. They are designed in the US By checkpoint. Its not a copy of another motor.

Hi there,

To answer your question... Team Checkpoint Motors were designed in the U.S and are 100% Team Checkpoint parts. It all starts with our Stator design and the materials we use, right down to the air venilation cut outs in the can for cooling. If you havent tried one, you are missing out!

You can get them from your LHS or through Tower Hobbies. 3.5-8.5 for mod and 10.5,13.5,17.5 and 21.5 for spec racing.

Check them out.

Have a great day,

Barry

@ Barry: Can you tell if the moter complies with EFRA specs? Thanks.


Regards,
RA

As it is according the rules under point 2.4 in the EFRA rules it's EFRA legal.

http://news.efra.ws/fileadmin/docume...andb09App3.pdf

Most of the motors are according the rules so I think that it will be according the rules.
But I want also now if it is so I can update my motor list with the motors that are according the EFRA rules.
