Clean and Convenient Power Setups

Hitec has some new motors for multirotor pilots that will make for super clean installs. The new Energy Propel Motors have built-in speed controllers that you can barely tell are there. The ESC's are programmable and come flashed with BLHeli firmware so you can use OneShot on your flight board. These are a great way to save space in your build and reduce soldering time allowing you to get in the air faster.

The 18 to 22 size motors come in clockwise and counterclockwise rotation versions and range in price from $33.99 to $43.99. The 35 and 41 size motors feature a reversing switch on the motor to select the rotation. They run $79.99. All motors are backed by Hitec's one year warranty. These haven't made it to the Hitec website yet, but they should be up on the site soon.

I'll say! In fact, I have a new, disassembled Armattan frame which would be a perfect test bed.

Any word if there are reviewers lined up?

Scratch that: Just sent you a PM, Jason.

Just got the OK to proceed with obtaining review samples! Emails have been sent and I hope to review these motors soon.

a) Why does the 2204 combo weigh less than the 1806? Strange.
b) These are rebranded ZTW combos, correct?

That's what I was thinking; they look exactly like ZTW black widows.

Lower overall wattage limit?

If these are rebadged ZTWs, the pricing is a joke.

As an example, the 35XX ZTWs run sub $60 from a us retailer (buddyRC): http://www.buddyrc.com/ztw-black-wid...-esc-1949.html

Hobbyking has them for even cheaper: https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...SC_CW_CCW.html

If these are to be taken serious, please tell us why these are better then their apparently identical ZTWs.

As is with all of our products, we offer our full support for them (which includes forum support) and include a one year warranty with them. We have had them manufactured to our specs.

If the ESC burns, then, need to replace the motor together, right? Or it can be replace by separately?

Just as a heads-up, I'll indeed be flying an Armattan CF 258 frame with these motors when everything comes together. Nice, simple, great flying base for a sport quad.

I did notice that there was no branding other than Team Ocuair, so for opportunists, get the product endorsed.

How well will they be balanced- out of the box?

These motors should be ready to bolt onto your multi and go with minimal setup required. There is even talk about using them in some foamies too
