LRP “Sphere” Speed Control & Reedy NEO Brushless Motor

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

New from LRP electronics. This esc is capable of controling both brushed and brushless motors.

The LRP Sphere is actually 4 speed controls in one, offering the user a choice of Forward/Brake/Reverse or just Forward/Brake operation when used with brushed or brushless motors… with practically NO motor limits!
33.3 by 37.7mm size

The Sphere features a 3-way multi-protection system against overload, thermal and short protection, as well as convenient external solder tabs for all the power wires

easy-to-use setup platform with FOUR adjustable modes:

Mode 1: Brushed/Brushless and Forward/Brake/Reverse or Forward/Brake selection.

Mode 2: Punch Control, with three engine maps: Sportsman, for brushless operation limited to 24, 000 RPM, Low Grip, using LRP’s intelligent current limiting system, and Modified, for unlimited RPM and linear throttle operation.

Mode 3: Initial Brake with four levels: Linear, smooth, medium, or aggressive. Allows the driver to adjust the feel of his brakes.

Mode 4: Automatic Brake, adjustable in four levels: No auto-brake, smooth auto-braking, medium auto-braking, and aggressive auto-braking. This feature is especially important when using brushless motors, as it enables you to closely simulate the feel of driving a conventional brushed motor (with its inherent “drag” brake action) when coasting in neutral.
Now LRP is a out of somewhere in Europe, however I believe Team Associated may be either distributing / Manufacturing these in North America...I can't find anything on them on this continent that isnt' associated to them somehow.

These two items are reviewed in RC Car Action Jan 05 issue.

Reedy NEO One Brushless Motor

I believe this will be there first addition to the brushless market.
By using only the highest quality components; Neodymium magnets, extra-thick copper windings, and a special low-resistance design, the engineers were reportedly able to provide the equivalent power of a brushed nine-turn motor… but with longer runtimes. The Reedy NEO One has no brushes, no springs, and no commutator to cut. Its completely sealed design provides maintenance-free performance in any racing environment, onroad or offroad.
This baby will fit in conventional 540 openings using standard gearing/pinion

This engine is listed on Tower for $119 U.S
Horizon $134.10

The LRP is listed on Horizon for $189.99

No listings for Canadian Hobby shops as of yet.
If your a hobby shop feel free to quote pricing.

They are due out January 2004.

This will be a nice competition to the Novak systems.
