Product Description

If you just want to have the sickest, fastest, most reliable 17.5 money can buy, then look no further.  The "Works" edition give you the Royal Treatment and it shows on the track!  This is the RPM version so hold on tight down that straightaway!

Developed    in the USA with over 6 months of R&D, we are proud to introduce   the  all new Fantom FR-1 Series professional racing motors.

The   heart of the FR-1 Series motors are the stators and rotors.  Our  stators  are made from premium Kawasaki® steel from Japan.  Countless  hours of  track testing went into the development of our stators, which  include  two different designs, to cover the different wind motors and  their  intended uses.  Our two stator designs are not just different  stack  heights, but are also two completely different designs!  Our TYPE  T  stator design is used for our 10.5 spec motors and all of the  modified  motors (2.5 through 9.5 turn).  Our TYPE R stator design is  used for our  25.5   turn spec motors.  Our TYPE M stator design is used for our 21.5 turn   spec motors and our 13.5 and 17.5 turn spec motors are available in   either the TYPE M, TYPE R, TYPE RS or TYPE T configurations.

Our   rotors are precision balanced and manufactured using a premium grade  neodymium formula, for  extreme horsepower and superior fade  resistance!  All are laser engraved  with the Fantom logo and specs!

MORE POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

YOU ARE VIEWING THE WORKS EDITION VERSION OF THIS MOTOR. 

 

 

THIS WORKS EDITION MOTOR INCLUDES ALL OF THE OPTIONS LISTED BELOW.  IT ALSO INCLUDES THE ORIGINAL STOCK BEARINGS AND 2 EXTRA TEFLON SHIMS AS SPARE PARTS.

WORKS EDITION SERVICE & UPGRADE  DETAILS:

TYPE R or TYPE T Stator Options - See stator application chart below.

Rotor Re-Shim w/ TEFLON® Shims -     We disassemble the  motor and adjust the   rotor shims  so that the     rotor "floats"  centered properly within the   magnetic  field.  We  use  TEFLON® shims for the outermost shims, to minimize any side-load   binding between the rotor and bearings.  If   required, the rotor shaft   is also polished to   ensure that it fits the   inner race of the   bearing correctly.  We also   make sure that it  has   the correct end   play, so that it  is not bound up   or too loose.

ABEC 7 Hybrid Ceramic Bearings - These       are ABEC 7 rated, maximum-performance hybrid ceramic replacement          bearings.  They  feature  no-contact seals, for less drag and are   the     highest precision,    most free spinning bearing available for   r/c     motors.  These  bearings  are lighter and capable of achieving   higher     RPM's compared to  standard  chrome steel bearings.  The    high-tolerance    ceramic balls are  super-hard  and  roll with extremely high accuracy   and low resistance.  More info here  We     also make sure the   bearings seats are sized correctly before     installing the  bearings.  This   ensures that the bearings are not     squeezed or  distorted when  installed,  which could cause extra drag or      nonconcentrical bearing  movement.  If required, the rotor shaft is also polished to ensure that it fits the inner race of the bearings correctly.

Rotor Options -Choose  either the 12.5mm high-torque COMP SELECT or PRO SELECT rotor listed  below (see chart below for our recommendations).  All Works Edition   rotors are checked for correct bearing fit.  If required, the rotor shaft is polished to ensure that it fits the inner race of the bearing correctly.  All Works Edition rotors are certified to meet our strict standards.

Dyno Test -     We evaluate   your motor  to make sure it is performing properly.   We    test your  motor  on our Fantom dyno, through a Tekin RS Pro ESC.    The   ESC is set  at the   default settings from Tekin (no added     programming).  This test   evaluates  RPM, Power and Torque.  A printout     is supplied with your   motor.  We  also test the sensor circuit   board   to verify that it is   working  correctly.

Rotor Strength Test Option -We evaluate your rotor  to make sure it meets proper specs.  If we find that the rotor does not meet our strict standards, we will replace it.  We  disassemble the motor and remove the rotor.  The rotor's magnetic field  strength is tested on our Fantom  rotor tester    and the results are provided.  All Works Edition rotors are certified to meet our strict standards.

Coil Resistance Test Option -We evaluate the ohms resistance of your stator   to make sure it meets proper specs and to detect shorts.  If we find that the stator does not meet our strict standards, we will replace it.  We  disassemble the motor and test each coil individually.  The stator results are tested on our Facts Machine 2 and the results are provided.

Set Motor Timing Option -  We set your timing to    either our recommended setting    based on the  race application that you select, or we can set it to your    own  custom setting.  To set your timing, we use the highly accurate Motolyser brushless motor tester.  IMPORTANT: If you choose to have us set your timing to our recommended setting, we set the timing based on blinky mode ESC operation.

 

THIS MOTOR IS ALSO AVAILABLE AS A SPEC EDITION or TEAM EDITION (links below).

  • SPEC EDITION - Standard      motor as produced in China.  Built with standard 12.5mm high-torque rotor and no other     options  available.
  • TEAM EDITION - Customize your motor with 7 different team tuning options. Price includes certified rotor.

IMPORTANT: We use our Fantom Facts Machine 2-AC     to test our rotors and stators.  It is important to know that there  is   no standard in the RC industry for testing brushless rotors and    stators.  There are numerous testers on the market, including the    Trinity, MMS and others, that all provide different information.  The    information can vary greatly.  For example, one company's meter may read    1500 for a rotor, where our meter may read it as 1400.  The same goes    for stator readings.  For example, a 19.5ohm reading on another brand    meter, may be the same as a 20.2ohm reading on our tester.  The  Fantom   tester is calibrated using 1/2% tolerance 5, 10 and 20 ohms  resistors,   so you can feel confident that we are providing you with  the most   accurate testing in RC.
