I have the Trinity / Epic I-Gauss Brushless Motor Rotor Checker which is the same. I just got and played with it. The only change I made was to put Deans on it.

So far as I can tell, it's giving good numbers. I have all the readings from my motors wrutten down. Sometime this week I'm changing all my rotors to 12.3 and will let know next weekend.

I think it is more direct to put the motor to the motor checker to check the ampere drawn and revolution rather than check the reading for the rotor. any comment?

Hi, here is a video of the Team Powers brushless motor checker I took yesterday. Looks like a good tuning tool to quickly determine which motors are faster. Gives you rpm, kva, current.

+ YouTube Video

yes. it is a good tools. can test the motor very quickly. also, only one lipo battery and a checker is enough to test the motor, very easy to set up the tools.

i have tried to put a Team Powers 4.5t motor to the motor checker to check it, it shouldn't be any problem. from my experience, it should depend on the quality of the rotor. if the rotor quality is good, the magnet should not fly apart even running at a high speed without the loading.

in nowadays, i think most brand brushless motors are mature in the quality, so it is not suprise that most rotors shouldn't be flied apart even running at a higher speed. On the other hand, most motor brand is now trying to increase the overall power profile without destroy the motor to compete with each other, so the motor checker should be an important tools for the user or the manufacturer to fine tune their motors.

hi, i have reviewed the motor checker and have some comment sharing with each other. please feedback once have any comment.

1. If there is a problem on your motor and put it to ESC to check it, the failure motor may have chance to damage the expensive ESC. However, I found that if I put it to the motor checker to check it first, even the motor have potential problem, but the motor checker have internal protection to protect itself, I think that is a good item that most players want to buy one
checker rather than buy more ESC to check it.

2. In the motor checker, I can see how change for the ampere draw and kv value when the rotor or sensor angle is changed. I found that reading can determine how change for the torque and the gear ratio. That should help to fine tuning the motor to adapt diff. kind of track layout.

3. Sometimes I found this checker can save some money also because this checker can check out if the sensor board have damaged or not. If I find the failure is due to the sensor board only, I can use the other same brand sensor board to replace it first. It is better to buy a new motor.

we used one of these at the first f1 meeting in the uk on saturday , we took it with us to show around the pits and let people try it, the finding were very interesting ""just a shame i didnt have any to sell"

keep an eye out for a full review in radio race car
