Burned out my Reedy Radon 3000 was a decent motor only problem was that it ran really hot one time it was smoking a bit probaly going to upgrade to a Brushless Motor setup since im getting tired of brushed
What a great way to rid the world of brushed junk!
I wish it was any different, but almost all stock brushed RTR motor are of poor (cheap) quality.
And to upgrade a brushed motor to one, which is more durable and with more power is concerning the motor often more expensive than a brushless motor. However you need to upgrade to a brushless ESC's as well, which is the most expensive part.
Once I replaced the stock motor with a Kyosho bruhed truck motor with neodymium magnets, the fun started.
But no comparison with a brushless system. Since that is in the Fury, it is really flying like my Mojave BLX
Still it irritates me that all the brands walk away with a poor motor.
The risk is that newbie buyers will stop with the hobby because failure comes so quickly.
There will be a time soon I think, where the brushed motor will not be for sale anymore.
"Mild" brushless systems like 2-pole 2700kV 540 cans will replace them.
I bought the mega raider and ran 2s and burned the ESC and the motor in just couple months, but im soo glad i did because thanks to steve it is running close to 50mph , i need a wheelie bar!
