O.S. Engines going electric
Here’s a bit of interesting news from the aircraft side of the hobby. O.S. Engines is tossing their hat into the brushless electric ring. Their new line of brushless aircraft motors, which they are calling O.S. Motor, were designed in-house by O.S. engineers, and have quite a few unique features. In particular their centrifugal cooling fan which is designed to draw in cool air through specially angled vents that direct air through the windings and over the magnets. The first line of motors will be available in sizes equivalent to .25, .30, .40, and .50 size nitro engines.
But us in the car world will be interested to know that O.S. is also planning on releasing car specific brushless motors. Though they don’t offer any additional details at this point. Keep an eye on the O.S. Engines website for more info.
