Someone on Facebook asked Castle why they don't offer a sensored motor and this was the reply: "Good things come to those who wait."

I don't have a crystal ball but I am guessing this means an announcement in '16 and a product in '17.

Pretty exciting!

Second comment down. For some reason Facebook thinks that I am spanish. I am not and I don't speak it. The video is funny and the comment is completely unrelated to the video.

Yes, wait and wait and wait...

I'm not going to attempt to find the post but when the Castle 1415 2400KV motor came out (what's that? 5 years ago?) Patrick said there would be a sensored version available. Not sure if he used the exact word "soon" but I do remember that.

Well I waited and waited. I was running the Castle 2400 on 3S in a 4WD SCT. Lots of bumping and banging happens in SCT and when I got tagged, I got tired of waiting and waiting until the track was clear (and basically in last place) and no one else was hitting me so the MMP could figure out its sync with the rotor and I could get the car moving again.

I changed to a Tekin T8I 2700 (closest I could find to the 1415) and never looked back. There was nothing wrong with the 1415 so long as I was rolling but but after getting crashed into I needed the instant startup that sensored offers regardless of the car being pushed around and even rolling backwards.

Too late for me to worry about waiting another 3-4 years for Castle sensored motors. Really, it couldn't have been that hard - Novak did it!

OK, found it: Patrick's post from 2010 that there was going to be a sensored version of the 1415.

In reposnse to this question:

Are there still plans for a sensored 1415/1Y based combo, perhaps matched with an MMP ?

Cheers

Sensored isn't really necessary (especially with a good 4 pole motor), and let's us put a longer rotor and stator into the same size motor.

We are not supposed to comment on upcoming products any more. It makes the marketing guys really angry.

Especially when they are coming very soon.
