With the TBS Mr.Steele motor, a trend in motor manufacturing is finally broken. No longer do you have to sacrifice batteries to squeeze just a tiny bit more power out of your setup. We also stopped using top-of-the-line magnets or chasing weight requirement pipe dreams to sacrifice reliability and smoothness in flight.
We made a motor to match the flying style and requirements of one of the most popular miniquad FPV pilots, and RotorRiot host, Mr.Steele! It's a motor built for longevity, consistency and silky smooth feel.
A bit of history ...
We started out with a couple of corner-stones in motor properties. High kV, low kV. Big stator, small stator. Varying stator laminations, winding techniques and copper diameters. We analyzed the results on a thrust test stand next to all reputable motors, and matched them to the requirements of Mr.Steele's reference motors. We found the closest match to his requirements, and produced 2 different styles to send for Mr.Steele for testing. After running each of them for a few days, we received feedback, made corrections on the motor, and re-made samples. After a total of 5 iterations and over 100 motors sent, we finally managed to isolate the perfect candidate. But the quest was not done! Next we worked on the finish. To produce a white motor, all tolerances were re-calculated. Each and every detail of the motor, down to the C-clip, was investigated, refined and tested. After almost 4 months of ups and downs, today we are able to release and stand behind what we believe is a motor that will cause a paradigm shift for this industry.
