However, the motor runs cooler, longer, with way less maintenance....the brushes take a beating and keep running......with a v2 or checkpoint endbell....the motors that are getting 20+ runs could go double that with the 5 or 7 segment arms and neo mags.....let us use bigger arms and the power will be even greater.

The money saved in the long run on rebuilds will easily make up for the addtional intial cost......the same arguement used with brushless all the time....

Problem is.....ROAR promised a rules update (Rick Wilson, I have the email some where).....but they did not. And really, without IFMAR behind it....nobody is gonna do it until that happens......its why I stopped even working on it....

This is somthing I wish would have happend 3 years ago when we started having problems with mod motors. More poles on the arm and rare earth magents would have helped a lot.

IFMAR is on the brushless bandwagon. This is a diffrent solution to the same problem. The good thing is Novak and LRP should have BL tear dowsn for sale soon.

They are segments.....a motor has two poles, a north and south....

Bobby J, around 15% more overall over the current stuff....

I still think we could get it pushed through ROAR.....but it would retarded for us to use motors all year and then not be able to use them at worlds or at international events outside the USA....

Whoops you are right. I have been winding brushless motors for my R/C planes lately (12 pole, 9 segment stators) and the nomeclature diffrences got me crossed up.

Yeah...its little those are 1mm squares...

It pretty much a backwards (inside out) brushed motor. The shaft has a cylindrical magnet (Rotor) pressed on to it. The can has a Stator inside made up of steel laminations with copper windings woven on to it.

Its a lot simpler than a brushed motor.
