Cox electric powered models

Post  dinsdale on Tue Jul 16, 2013 7:20 am

Heeeeelllpppp!

I have a Cox Icon radio and Rx, the one with the built-in BEC and ESC. I'm making a small model for my grandson and wanted to power it with a small electric motor. I find that I need to know whether the Cox motors were/are brushed or brushless.

In fact, if there's a supply of Cox electric motors somewhere I'd like to get a couple.

I'm not familiar with the Cox electrics, but if the receiver has a built in ESC, that will tell you. If it has two motor power leads, then it's for brushed motors. If it has three motor leads, then it's for a brushless.

Naw. If you're into electronic theory, you'll know the old debate about electron flow and hole flow. I'm firmly in the electron flow camp, although in the minority.

They would have been brushed. Brushless came out after they shut down that part of the company.
