Brushless Motor Checker

This is a professional tool that all serious racers should have.  It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and provides useful data to gain the edge over your competition.

INTRODUCTION – The motor checker is a precision electronic device that is especially designed for measuring the KV value, RPM, current (amp) draw and sensor function of brushless motors, without the need of a speed control.  The 2X 16 character LCD display shows real-time measurements of both sensored and sensor-less brushless motors.  It runs on any 7.4v Li-Po battery pack, so no additional power suppy is required.


  1. BRUSHLESS MOTOR CHECKING (Both Sensored & Sensor-less)
  • KV Measurement (how many thousands of RPM a motor has per volt of input power) For example: A 4.5kv motor produces 4,500 RPM’s for every 1 volt of input power.  At 7.4 volts this motor would produce 33,300 RPM’s (4,500 x 7.4 = 33,300)
  • RPM Measurement (8 throttle increments)
  • Ampere Measurement (current draw by testing motor up to 18A)


  • Tests proper function of internal sensors (sensored motors only) – Very important if you are having problems with your motor.  This is the first thing to check when your motor isn’t working properly.


  • Fix voltage from 2.5V to 7.2V or 10 steps cycle with variable voltage setting from 2.5V to 7.2V.


  • INPUT VOLTAGE: 7.4 – 8.6V (Suggested to use a 7.4V 2S LiPo battery)
  • LCD DISPLAY SCREEN: blue backlight background, white text, 16 characters x 2 lines
  • DIMENSIONS: 136.5mm x 80.6mm x 47mm
  • WEIGHT: 290 grams
  • SUPPORTED MOTORS: Sensored or Sensor-less Brushless Motors (A) Standard 540 Size R/C Car Motor: 2.5 turn and over, 2 poles (B) Flight Motor: support sensor-less brushless motor, 6 poles (out-runner motor).  All with current draw less than 18 amps at 8.4V without loading.

  • Power Cord
  • Sensor Cable
  • A, B, C Motor Connector Leads

LOCATION OF THE RACE As we explained previously, the two previous editions of the Mini-Z endurance series were held inside commercial centres. In addition to finding an unbeatable location and first class equipment for performing our hobby, we were able to bring the Mini-Z to a numerous group of spectators congregated in the commercial centre.  Therefore, in this next edition, the chosen location will be one of the main attractions of the race. The race will be held at the Parc Vallés, a recreational centre located in Terrassa; some 20km from the city of Barcelona.  Could you just imagine what the weekend will be like at the Parc Vallés? An exclusively recreational centre, full of restaurants, game rooms, discos and cinemas and free parking? I can tell you in advance that this race will be held in front of a large audience! Thanks to the close collaboration with the Parc Vallés, the participants of the race will benefit from interesting sales and discounts not to mention a wide offer of cuisine.  
Avenida Téxtil S/N  –  08223 Terrassa (Bcn)


The base hotel where all teams will meet, is very close to the recreational complex and thus all trips between the hotel and the track will not require the use of transport vehicles. 
There will be a reduced rate at the Hotel Terrassa Park *** for all participating teams, which is one of the facilities that the race organisers will offer the members of each team.  HOTEL TERRASSA PARK
Avenida Santa Eulalia, 236  –  08223 Terrassa (Bcn)
