Written by: Derek Buono

We love tools, computers, gadgets or basically anything that can help us learn. This allows us to help you learn. Brushless motors are still a “black box” to many, but as we learn more- we can tune them, make them better, or figure out an issue and fix it. Fantom Racing has long had a dyno for brushed motors that was easy to use and gave good information. This new version called the Facts Machine2 is targeted toward brushless motor tuners. It doesn’t actually test the motors “spin” but gives you information about the strength of it’s core parts. Brushless motors can rev to over 70,000 rpm and is far to dangerous for most to test under load! The Facts Machine2 is a tool that will allow us to compare lots of things and make our magazine even mo’betta!
