Send an email to the contact email address on the webpage. I received a quick response from Paul in regards to my question.
I can not fully answer your question because there are three different rotors for the M-codes motors. I bought a 21.5 that came with the "mid" rotor and was told the mid's range in a gauss reading anywhere from 1580 to 1620.

Going to try a 13.5 stock rotor and 1S in one of the GT12s.

Yes it's Paul's company, the way I understand it thunder power is simply getting away from the car side to focus on helicopter and airplane stuff.

Anyone here have any experience with the Motiv batteries? Also curious about the weight of them.

Here are the numbers included with my motor (13.5T). I have measured the rotor on a second machine, but haven't done so with the stator. Not sure what good these numbers will be, but here you go:

Rotor +1595 -1609
Stator A 13.0
Stator B 13.1
Stator C 13.2

On the second machine my rotor measured at right around 1480 on both sides, which was still exceptionally high compared to the (many) other rotors we have measured on that machine.

Thanks, guys. These numbers are right in line with what Paul said in response to my question submitted on the Motiv web site.

On another note, I didn't realize this was his company! I would have expected him to use the same name-- Gravity-- but I'm sure there is a good reason he didn't. No matter what the name, his customer service is always great!

No, but they seem like a good package
And look nice

I've been on Schuurspeed for 15'
and don't see a need to change

Rocket Rons motors are also top shelf

Impressive gauss readings on the rotor. Have never seen anything that high.
