So which arms are these using? Sagami? Or the new ones you guys were working on? I see a few arms on the approved list...

Hi Guys

I have been testing the Checkpoint motors in the UK, I have to say that these are the best motors I have used!

The quality of the engineering in the endbell is superb!

I have run 7 and 8 turns, with the 7 turn I ran 15 times on one set of brushes, changed to new ones with no gain in performance! So I would say at least 15 runs on the brushes

Eddie: All armatures approved are Sagami.
dasdaman: We will post the part numbers for the brushes and springs later today.
If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask.

The website will be finished in the next few days or so. We don't have enough time in a day to keep up with the demand. Great Planes is our North and South America distributor.

Hi Daryl

Things are good, the motors bring a smile to your face every time you hit the gas!

They should be B.R.C.A / EFRA Legal soon

I need to speak to Duane some more about the Reedy, may be there

I can't wait to try one of these motors. I was also wondering if there are going to be optional brush springs soon?

There will be several different brushes and springs for the motors. We haven't narrowed all of them down yet. We are shipping springs and brushes now.
