I'm slowly hacking away at little sensored outrunners. Just got sensor board with a design design for standard sensor plugs. Waiting on rotors from China and stator from Japan. pics later

I swear I've been working on motors! These tiny shits are difficult in ways unexpected. Six sensor boards made, which gives one left for me and one for somebody else...

I have 90 degree and straight headers for the sensor plugs. Preference for Brian? I went ahead and added filter caps and pull up resistors for super snappy signals.

Those look Good John,

Vertical header would be the way to go for me.

The small holes route phase wires out and under, big holes let them pass back outside the can radius in the same direction as the sensor harness. Also strain relief.

1000 kv will definitely do the trick. Though if you can go lower we should chat.

This thing is amazing! Ingenuity at its pinnacle! Count me in if it ever makes it to production.
I wish I had the resources to make some of my half-crazy inspirations come to reality.

Thanks man, It was a fun challenge to push the envelope and make something different. Might try some urethane casting on some of the parts and see if It is strong enough. Doing everything from carbon and billet Aluminum would drive the cost higher than most would want to spend, Add 2 servos, 4 speedos, 4 motors, and a 7 channel receiver and it adds up quick.

I have a stack of sensor boards, and finished one endbell before petering out! I have another factory helping with endbells right now, along with some prewound stators being made by scorpion. I just can't afford the 40 hours it would take to build your set from scratch, so help from other factories was put into motion to pick up my slack.

Negative, It is in a state of upgrade but non driveable right now.
