For us non motor gurus. I have a question. The last few motors I bought are MC2 17.5's I really like them. When I needed a new 21.5 the shop didn't have them and said that the "new" style motors are better than the "old" style motors anyway. The difference was explained to me as the speed of the phasing turning on and off. It was said that the "newer" style motors are better/quicker than the older style motors. For example the new Reedy S+ motors.

So is the MC2 an old style motor and the MC3 a new style motor? I hope I have used the correct terminology as I am not a motor guru. I'm the guy that buys what the fast guys are running, rather than figure out what is the fastest thing to run. I will be needing a new 25.5 motor soon and will want the best I can get at the time.

I know nothing about he new MC3, but sounds like someone is confused. The ESC is what controls the phasing turning on and off. It's possible the ramp up and down time might vary between motors based on the capacitance.

Keep an eye out for a press release soon, I can say that I was impressed with the motor over this past weekend!
