Default Holmes Hobbies Revolver Black (Special edition)





Looking for a lightweight motor for your 2.2 or clodbuster? Introducing the Revolver Black! Designed around the OG revolver, yet with higher quality construction and Sleek looks.

These are great outrunners for just about any rig, big or small. The small diameter allows gearing without worry of rubbing the gearbox, but it is large enough to produce a ton of power. I have even used one of these on my 14" super rig!

Bolts up to ANY standard gearbox with plenty of room for all gearing choices
1/8" shaft fits standard pinions

350 Watts continuous
3.5 ounces, 127g
1000kv
6-12 cells nimh 2-4s lipo
1 3/8" width x 1 5/8" long construction (34x42mm)

3.5mm bullit plugs installed from factory


As a side note I have been testing these for about 4 months, and haven't been disappointed once. Super smooth startup, works with any ESC, plenty of power, and cool running.

Is this thing as smooth as the original Revolver with a mamba 25 or is it going to be a little jerky at super slow speeds like most motors are?
I really don't like how unsmooth the rr2 and the bm9 have been compared to a quark in general or a mamba 25 with a OG Revolver.

The construction is different, and I will post up how it reacts with a mamba 25 for you. The OG revolver had a very inconsistant magnetic feild, which acutally helped the startup with the mamba 25. There is still a bit of a jerk to the startup with a mamba 25, which can be helped greatly with lower gearing and higher voltage. I will get a vid up by the evening.

Less power, 1 ounce lighter, easier to deal with gearing because of the smaller diameter.

It does have a few twitches when coming up to an object. The quark 33 and mamba max do not show that, interestingly enough.

Nope, that is just a GWS and mamba 25 or quark 33 with a few dollars knocked off. I suppose I should put that up on my site eh?
