Default Re: MFZ Blocher 1/16 tractors and Implements

Looks good but I will warn you about the modelcraft motors they are what Stahl used in their equipment and they require an ESC with a big dead band as to not blow up the motors. If you don’t know dead band is the amount of 0 output between forward and reverse. Without dead band the motors will get just a slight bit of power which will heat up the capacitors inside and cause them to explode inside the can. These motors have 3 capacitors mounted to the com in between the windings and spin with the com. When they blow up it locks the motor solid. I bought extras for my dozer and loader after 3 had blown up. Now I have replaced the motors on the gearboxes with 380 crawler motors which gave me three advantages, no more blown motors, more speed, and more power than the original motor.
