1/8 scale 1515 motors discontinued soon? - 12.28.2013, 03:31 PM

I've watched the lower kv motors get discontinued and now I see repair kits are getting hard to find for the 2200 and 2650. Is castle gonna discontinue theses two soon?
I gotta rebuild my 2200 but if something better is in the works IDE rather Waite.

Wondering if a redesign is in the works or are they just behind. Tower has the 2650 rebuild as being unavailable.


Brushless ..... I put that s... In everything.

Neodymium is getting much more expensive, but these motors are going nowhere.

Something better is in the works, but it is in addition not a replacement ans most wont want to pay the extra price for them.

Isn't the 2650KV a 1512 not a 1515? You could be not finding them because you are searching for the wrong thing.


Hot Bodies Lightning 2 Pro carbon, Mega 22/30/2, MMM, 4s3-5Ah.
Tamiya F201 carbon, Mamba 7700, MM, 2s A123 2.3ah.
Xray XT8, 1518, MMM, 4s5Ah.
Lots of boats.

Nah I need the 2200 not the 2650 just noticed it said not available. I'm willing to pay for something awesome. I still have my Tekno Neu from a few years back and I paid something like 250 for it. Quality is worth the cash to me.
Maybe ill hold off a while and see what they come out with.

No way to get one over here in Europe.

Would be nice to get a statment from Castle regarding this

I'm close to move away from using Castle to Leomotion

Mirko

Lets bump this up for special motors. Even if no one wanted to purchase from us, I would love to see something new. It doesnt have to be a huge change, just new

The leomotion motors have exactly the same caracteristics as the NEU motors...
IMO they are only NEU motors painted and renamed ...


Inferno VE MMv3 NEU-CC 1515/1Y 4S "Flying machine"

MBX5T Prospec MMv3 NEU-CC 1520/1Y 6S "Overkill Flying machine" ;)

Brushless, what else ?
