Default DualSky motors and esc's

Got to run my DualSky motors and esc's this past weekend and they ran great! DualSky has been in the plane market for awhile and are making a push into the car scene. I ran the XC550 in my DEX210 with the DualSky 17.5 in blinky buggy this past weekend and it was just as fast down the straight as anything else but with more grunt out of the corners. The "cool" thing about these esc's is they have an aluminum case, so the whole unit acts as a heatsink All the motors come with a 12.5mm rotor standard, no need to upgrade

CKhobby.com is the US importer and should have them in stock shortly

Atsushi Hara had a hand in designing these motors. That speaks for itself, as far as I am concerned. I'm going to be giving these a try. Thanks for the report, Matt.

I wouldn't even compare the DualSky stuff to Castle stuff, not a fair comparison

Not the place for pricing. Information and support thread.

If you would like pricing please feel free to send me a email.

Do you have any more specs? Motor limit? Any timing adjustments?

just got a 10.5 for pro 2 class and a 17.5 for stock buggy and will be racing them this weekend so i'll post results after maybe sunday but so far these motors are top notch and if your going to compare them to anything I guess you could compare them to an orion. They are super smooth and very powerful motors and run cooler then others. I've only just ran practice laps but I am no slouch on a race track and I can honestly say these are good motors and will get atleast one if not two wins this weekend lol.

Not only that Mike at CK hobbies is a very good guy that will do anything to help you out and very intouch with the sport.

Look for my review on sunday.

Stuff looks nice but what is the advantage to Hobbywing esc's and LRP motors?

The esc's are smaller compared to the hobbywings. Motors have cooling vents on the front end to help keep it cool. Both run really well and are comparable to any other top end electronics on the market. The esc's also have a metal case so you don't need an additional heatsink.
