Viper going big
Viper is still a relatively new player in the R/C biz, but they’re moving fast to catch up to the offerings of other companies. Now they are putting out a new line of brushless motors appropriate for 1/8 scale electrics. The Viper VSE-B and VSE-T are sensored motors ready for buggies and truggies respectively. Both versions feature a machined 6061 aluminum can for great heat dissipation, high grade oversized bearings for smoothness and durability, and an integrated temp sensor for thermal protection. Where they differ is the can size, with the truggy ready VSE-T having a 5mm longer can and rotor than the VSE-B. Both motors will be available in a variety of speeds from 1300 up to 2450 Kv.
Unfortunately there’s no word on price or availability. Check out the Viper R/C website for more info.
