This will rank up there with the best noob questions of all time, BUT what the diff between inrunner and outrunner for us? We're always running with a gearboxes (unlike planes), so is the diff just the orientation of the windings to stator? Is one better then the other for cars/trucks?

Is it red to red, black to black and blue to white?

First brushless setup and want to be sure


Alfy
Doesn't matter how you plug it in. Just swap two wires if it runs backwards.

Inrunner, magnets are on inside. Outrunner, magnets are on outside of stator.

Two questions:
1. Why is there no separate thread for the Revolver S series?
2. Is there an ETA for the next batch of Revolver S 540?

Outrunners without sensor do cog a bit. Not as much as inrunners with fewer poles though.
Revolver S, where the "S" stands for "Sensored", is (from what I've heard) extremely smooth.

S stands for smoooooth! or sensored.


Should be 4 to 6 weeks and we will have a small run of 300 revolver S motors ready to rock.

It won't be enough to keep inventory until the next batch is finished, so its smaller than it should be!

* The regular 540 is 14 poles and the stubby is 8 poles, as I've understood it.
* There's also a 50g weight difference, which is the deciding factor I ordered a stubby.
* The 540 can deliver more power and has a little better efficiency.

I want the stubby just because it looks cool. Lol probably get the 540 though since it has more power.
