I just ordered a pair also. Looks like you are keeping busy! Nice.

We have gotten in a pretty good groove now. One fella has taken to winding very well, he is currently doing 5 slots. I do three slot winding, large rotor winding, and all terminating. Another gentleman (carpenter) is doing can finishing, magnet installation, and general shop stuff. Leaves time for tooling and prototyping! Almost back to a point where we can get back to media stuff.

I've been working on a contract engineering project for a UAV firm for the past many months. While we can't show anything new about it yet, I'm glad to be past the project and have a fresh perspective on design. Now that I have quite a lot of time freed back up, I can apply the knowledge right back to our competition and play motors.


After making a 2 ounce motor that would break our crawlers, I'm feeling pretty froggy to boost our efficiency and torque density numbers over last years efforts. Making the smoothest and lightest motors is easy for me. Now it is time to put the technical cap on and apply further electromagnetic engineering to an already dominant design.

Alright, maybe one sneak peak of an unidentified motor. The needs were soft and quick startup, along with fast reverses.

Looks sweet John. Will this be in the line of the lightweight motors?

I can't sell designs we have engineered for other companies.


I can make my own designs though. Did some CAD work on the Puller 400/500 housings and removed a half ounce in "digital" form. These will either become the 2015 design or the team type. The housing is more expensive than the existing design, so we may have two types moving forward. Either way, it also gives us the ability to seal the motor fully without a weight penalty. Get rid of the face machining, and add in a special endbell design.

I've been using my shop thread for most general updates, but this seemed like a good vid for here.

Short vid of handwinding motors, a TorqueMaster Pro 35t in the first part of armature production.

I've got two of them and absolutely love them. Very quiet, great speed and gobs of torque!

What is the best way to power the shv500 servo on 3cells? I've read people running it directly from the battery but am not sure how to safely go about that.

Solder the red wire of the pigtail and the black wire of the pigtail to the matching color battery leads coming from the ESC, then cover the solder joints with insulation (I am using Liquid Electrical Tape).

While I have very poor soldering ability for personal reasons - my local Batteries Plus store charged me a whopping $3 to take care of it. Easy-Peasy!
