I've been told that a blueprinted/certified version of the Actinium exists somewhere but I have been unable to locate it, can anyone provide the info as to where I can acquire one?

Thanks

There is not another version of the Actinium that is broadly available. When/if there ever is, we will definitely have them right away.

Team EAM will be offering the Actinium motors in our normal blueprinted version soon. I spoke with Eric Vasutin at the IIC about getting them in bulk from him.

Craig Xaiver used a EAM Blueprinted version to win 12th Scale stock at the IIC.

I ran the Actinium in 17.5 and 13.5 at IIC, and this is the first time there where I didn't feel like I was chasing motor trying to keep up with the other guys. I had other issues, but motor certainly wasn't one of them.

I had to brake on the straight (twice) in the middle and again at the end on several occasions in 13.5 because I ran down the guy in front of me. These motors are legit. I wish I could get back all the money I spent on D4's that are now paperweights.

My Actinium 17.5 was very good in 1/12 scale at the IIC as well. I did check the motor with a Motolyser at the event, I was running a rollout of 98mm, and the timing was cranked to the stop.... which the Trinity Motolyser said was 59 or 60 degrees of static timing

Didn't get hot though, I could hold my hand on the motor after the run.

Were you 1/12th guys running the stock 12.3 rotor or the 12.5? Ran mine (from gridworks, thanks for the speedy shipping) for the first time Sunday and it did very well but felt like it needs a 12.5.

Craig ran the stock rotor in his motor at the IIC in 12th stock. It had very very little fade at the end of the run and never got hot. Everything else he tried faded harder over the 8 minute run.

That's not what the website says but I haven't pulled mine out to look yet.
