Incredibly good job by this model car artist Hiro. He has presented in his blog an amazing job with the new Kyosho MiniZ Subaru Impreza.
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.
- 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)
2. SENSOR TEST
- 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.
3. MOTOR/CAR DIFF BREAK-IN
- 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.
- Test Unit
- Power Cord
- Sensor Cable
- A, B, C Motor Connector Leads

Timetables and Accommodation at the MiniZ Endurance Series
08:00 – Team pick-up from hotel
23:00 – End of race and prize-giving. Return to the hotel.
09:00 – Pick-up from hotel. Surprise visit relating to endurance races.15:00 – End of visit, return to hotel.
Avenida Téxtil S/N – 08223 Terrassa (Bcn)
LOCATION OF THE HOTEL
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.
