The Boost range of brushless outrunner motors has recently been added to our catalogue. Designed in Germany, these motors will appeal to all modellers seeking the highest technical standards for top performance, strength and sustained reliability provided by other quality brands like Hyperion and Hacker.
Recognising that a motor performs at its best when cool, this unique design has an open structure that forces the airflow directly to the stator and windings to maximise heat dissipation. Since no gearbox is required, these direct drive motors run practically wear-free.
To help the modeller make the right motor choice, this manufacturer (like E-flite) has created a range comparable to the most popular IC engine sizes widely used in aeromodelling from the Boost 10 through to the Boost 180. The range covers everything from 100g slow-fliers and '50 class' aerobatic models, to gliders and even 50cc petrol/gas conversions.
The design of the Boost 120, 140, 160 and 180 motors enables the propellor to be mounted directly onto the partially threaded shaft. These motors have an integrated, strong but lightweight, aluminum 4-point ring mount which allows easy attachment to your model.
The motors in the Boost 10 to 90 range are supplied with a taper-fit collet type prop adaptor and cross mount.

Please note: The above performance figures are provided as a guide only. The actual performance of the motor may be degraded by incorrect timing of the ESC, battery quality, temperature, unbalanced propellor, poor installation, poor wiring and electrical integrity and also inadequate cooling airflow over the ESC heatsink.
*Brushless motors do not need to be ‘run in’. Do not run any motor on ‘bench test’ for longer than 20 seconds. The motor and ESC may get excessively hot causing damage to the power train components.
* We recommend using a WATT METER to check a new system to ensure that the manufacturer's recommended specifications are not exceeded.
* YOU MUST confirm that the ESC program settings - especially the timing, are correct before running the motor.
* During the watt meter test, if the maximum current (Amps) is close to, or has reached, the maximum current for the motor before you have reached the full (open) throttle position DO NOT continue with the test. You should reduce the diameter and / or pitch of the propellor and retest
* Exceeding the motor specifications will damage the motor and / or ESC and battery. It is important that these components are set up properly. Failure to do so will void the warranty.
* We are unable to uphold the manufacturer's warranty if for any reason the motor has been modified, or used outside of the manufacturer's specification.
* Specification subject to change without notice
