Additional Details

It seems that these days we simply throw more electrons at poorly engineered models, but there was a time when the true test of your ability to design an efficient model, was to design around a Speed 700 motor. Models that flew well on this system with simple “round cells” were few and far between – those that did were real gems! This is the go-to motor for our brushed SQuiRT 700 primary trainer and it works flawlessly in that platform!
