Update 6-20-17: Brother Hobby shipped our batch of motors to us today via DHL. This means we will have them in stock Thursday or Friday this week. 

This motor from Brother Hobby was specifically designed for light weight 4inch and 5inch machines. The "returner" series of motors are know for high quality, HIGH output power, and light weight. These motors are a perfect match for our SuperLight 4R or Norris Edition 5inch racer. 

Configuration Suggestions: 

SuperLight 4R: The 2850KV is suggested for 4inch props. Compared to a 1407 motor these have quite a bit more torque allowing you to use heavy pitch blades. Even heavy pitch tri blades will be no problem! (Mouting the motor to the 4R)

SuperLight 5Inch (Norris Edition): 2600KV is usually the best option for 5" props on this motor for most racing scenarios. 2600KV will allow for more props selections, however we do suggest to keep pitch to no more than a 4, so props such as 5040 two blade (non bullnose), or light weight 5040 tri props such as HQ V1S. With the higher 2850KV option on 5inch props you will have higher top speeds, but more loading on your system. We have tested our Norris on the 2850KV version with HQ 5040 Tri V1S with fantastic results, however you need to keep AUW (before lipo) to no more than 220g, and run no larger than a 1300mah lipo. The 2850KV option will run a bit on the warm side. Light weight is KEY. (Mouting the motor to the Norris)

We can ship to almost anywhere in the world! Available international shipping options are using United States Postal Service (USPS) or DHL. USPS shipping will be per the flat rate option.
