The first, much anticipated product from the Rotor Riot team. After months of development and testing, the Hypetrain motor is here! Our shipment leaves China on September 4 and should be just a few days. Supply is limited and pre-orders will ship as soon as they arrive. All aboard!
Please note that these motors come with mounting holes that may not accomodate every frame. If you see slots on the frame motor mounts, chances are they will fit. If the frame has holes for motor mounts, you may only be able to fit two screws as most motors in this class have mount holes with one pair spaced at 16mm and the other at 19mm. The RR motors are 16x16. You can probably file/drill the existing frame to fit if if doesn't already.
The beautiful design and attention to detail of the Hypetrain Freestyle motor sets it apart from the competition. Inspired by the iconic Rotor Riot logo, the Hypetrain’s three-spoke 7075 aluminum bell showcases the elegant silver coated wire wound over the orange stator.
We love stylish design - but performance is the priority. That’s why we thoroughly considered every aesthetic decision, to ensure that it would not negatively impact the performance of the motor. And just to be extra sure, every motor gets individually tested before it leaves the factory! This guarantees that each motor will not only look nice, but also perform well!
As far as performance, the Hypetrain Freestyle is built around a 2306 stator, with single strand windings that give it a KV rating of about 2450 RPM per Volt. In other words, plenty of power and good efficiency! To ensure reliability, we opted to use high quality silicone wires for the motor leads.
The “open bottom” style base allows for considerable weight reduction and improved cooling, and the revolutionary 16x16 mm mounting screw pattern opens up new design possibilities while still maintaining backwards compatibility with legacy frames. Moreover, we wanted it to have a set screw to hold the bell rather than a C-clip, to facilitate motor cleaning and maintenance!
