Hobbywing have introduced the new XeRun 4274 G2 and 4268 SD G2 1/8 brushless motors. These brushless motors are the first motors (in the world) with a built-in chip which helps ESC identify if it’s a Hobbywing motor (when pairing with XERUN XR8/XR8 Plus) and form a power system which can work in the “Full-Sensored” mode and provide users with the better performance and smoother control. They are also designed with the Turbo Timing Technology, a technology widely adopted in 1/10th scale on-road racing and can be enabled for unleash the power of the motor (when pairing the motor with HW XERUN XR8 series of ESCs) and the bi-directional adjustable mechanical timing for meet the different power demands of various applications. Other features are also present like the Advanced Hall Sensing System, the first “error-free” Hall sensing system (Hobbywing’s patent) adopted by this motor to guarantee users the steady operation in the “Full-Sensored” mode. A separate high-speed high precision encoder always output the clean signals (indicate the rotor’s location) and not be affected by other signal interference. The XeRun 4274 G2 and 4268 SD G2 are likewise the first motors that adopt the innovative 4-pole-8-magnet “staggered pole” rotor (Hobbywing-patented design) which has the extremely low cogging effect and low torque pulsation (it’s reduced by 85% when comparing with traditional 1/8 motors).
