17.5 Turn FR-1 Team Edition Brushless Racing Motor
1 of 3 (Enlarge)

FR-1 TEAM EDITION - 17.5 Turn (image is representative of the motor design, but not the wind of the motor)

Developed in the USA with over 6 months of R&D, we are proud to introduce the all new Fantom FR-1 Series professional racing motors.

The heart of the FR-1 Series motors are the stators and rotors.  Our stators are made from premium Kawasaki® steel from Japan.  Countless hours of track testing went into the development of our stators, which include three different designs, to cover the different wind motors and their intended uses.  Our three stator designs are not just different stack heights, but are also three completely different designs!  Our TYPE T stator design is used for our 10.5 spec motors and all of our modified motors (3.5 through 9.5 turn).  Our 21.5 spec motors use the TYPE M design and our 25.5 turn spec motors use our TYPE RS stator design.  Our 13.5 and 17.5 turn spec motors are available in the TYPE T, TYPE M or TYPE RS configurations.

 Our rotors are precision balanced and manufactured using a premium grade neodymium formula, for extreme horsepower and superior fade resistance!  All are laser engraved with the Fantom logo and specs!

Suggested Stator Recommendations:

 TYPE T - Dirt Oval, Short Course Truck, Stadium Truck - Short/Standard Track

 TYPE M - 2wd Buggy - Short Track, 4wd Buggy - Short Track, Stadium Truck - Long Track, Touring Car - Short Track (no longer available)

 

TYPE RS - 2wd Buggy - Standard/Long Track, 4wd Buggy - Standard/Long, Touring Car - Standard/Long, 1/12th On-Road, Carpet Oval (no longer available)

YOU ARE VIEWING THE TEAM EDITION VERSION OF THIS MOTOR. 

TEAM EDITION INFO - IF YOU CHOOSE ANY OF THE OPTIONAL UPGRADE PARTS LISTED BELOW, YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE THE ORIGINAL STOCK PARTS.  THIS INCLUDES THE ROTOR AND BEARINGS.

OPTIONAL SERVICE & UPGRADE DETAILS:

Re-Shim Option (standard brass shims) - If you choose this option, we disassemble the motor and adjust the rotor shims so that the rotor "floats" centered properly within the magnetic field.  If required, the rotor shaft is also polished to ensure that it fits the inner race of the bearing correctly.  We also make sure that it has the correct end play, so that it is not bound up or too loose. 

Rotor Re-Shim Option (TEFLON® shims) - As with the standard brass re-shim option above, we disassemble the motor and adjust the rotor shims so that the rotor "floats" centered properly within the magnetic field.  With this option, we also use TEFLON® shims for the outermost shims, to minimize any side-load binding between the rotor and bearings.  If required, the rotor shaft is also polished to ensure that it fits the inner race of the bearing correctly.  We also make sure that it has the correct end play, so that it is not bound up or too loose.  You also receive two extra Teflon® shims.

Bearing Options - If you choose the ceramic bearings option, we make sure the bearings seats are sized correctly before installing the bearings.  This ensures that the bearings are not squeezed or distorted when installed, which could cause extra drag or nonconcentrical bearing movement.  If required, the rotor shaft is also polished to ensure that it fits the inner race of the bearings correctly.

  • Read more about optional ABEC 7 Hybrid Ceramic Bearings here

Rotor Options - Choose the 12.5mm high-torque Competition Select rotor at no extra cost, or one of the other four "optional" or "upgraded" rotors listed below.  There is an upcharge for the optional and upgraded rotors.  If you choose the "optional" 12.3mm or 12.4mm Pro Select rotor, you will also receive the "standard upgraded" 12.5mm high-torque (Pro Select) rotor.  All Team Edition rotors are checked for correct bearing fit.  If required, the rotor shaft is polished to ensure that it fits the inner race of the bearing correctly.  All Team Edition rotors are certified to meet our strict specifications, even if you don't choose the "Rotor Strength Test Option" described below.

  • Read more about optional 12.3mm ROAR Spec High-Torque PRO SELECT Replacement Rotor here

Dyno Test Option - If you choose this option, we evaluate your motor to make sure it is performing properly.  We test your motor on our Fantom dyno, through a Tekin RS Pro ESC.  The ESC is set at the default settings from Tekin (no added programming).  This test evaluates RPM, Power and Torque.  A printout is supplied with your motor.  We also test the sensor circuit board to verify that it is working correctly.

Rotor Strength Test Option - If you choose this option, we evaluate your rotor to make sure it meets proper specs.  If we find that the rotor does not meet our strict standards, we will replace it.  With this option, we disassemble the motor and remove the rotor.  The rotor's magnetic field strength is tested on our Fantom rotor tester and the results are provided.  If you choose an optional rotor, we will test both of your rotors and provide results for both rotors (standard plus your optional rotor).  All Team Edition rotors are certified to meet our strict specifications, even if you don't choose this Rotor Strength Test Option.

Coil Resistance Test Option - If you choose this option, we evaluate the ohms resistance of your stator to make sure it meets proper specs and to detect shorts.  If we find that the stator does not meet our strict standards, we will replace it.  With this option, we disassemble the motor and test each coil individually.  The stator results are tested on our Facts Machine 2 and the results are provided.

Set Motor Timing Option - If you choose to have us set your timing, this option allows you to either choose to have us set your timing to our recommended setting based on the race application that you select, or we can set it to your own custom setting.  To set your timing, we use the highly accurate Motolyser brushless motor tester.  IMPORTANT: If you choose to have us set your timing to our recommended setting, we set the timing based on blinky mode ESC operation.

THIS MOTOR IS ALSO AVAILABLE AS A SPEC, WORKS and WORKS EDITION PLUS (links below).

  • SPEC EDITION - Standard motor as produced in China.  Built with standard 12.5mm high-torque rotor and no other options available.
  • WORKS EDITION - This is our premium motor, built with all available options, including the highest  grade ABEC 7 hybrid ceramic bearings, complete blueprinting and much more.
  • WORKS EDITION PLUS - This is our premium motor, built with all available options, including the highest grade ABEC 7 hybrid ceramic bearings, complete blueprinting as well as the Pro Aluminum Option Parts.

IMPORTANT: We use our Fantom Facts Machine-3 to test our rotors and the Instek GOM-801H to test our stators.  It is important to know that there is no standard in the RC industry for testing brushless rotors and stators.  There are numerous testers on the market, including the Trinity, MMS and others, that all provide different information.  The information can vary greatly.  For example, one company's meter may read 1550 for a rotor, where our meter may read it as 1500.  The same goes for stator readings.  For example, a 19.5ohm reading on another brand meter, may be the same as a 20.2ohm reading on our tester.  The Fantom Facts Machine-3 rotor tester is the most accurate rotor tester in RC and is calibrated to the highest standards, so you can feel confident that we are providing you with the most accurate testing in RC.
