The Castle Creations 1520-1650Kv 4-Pole Sensored Brushless Motor is a blast from the past with the added benefit of sensored capabilities! The 1520-1650Kv has all of the secret sauce that the big brother 1717-1650Kv has, but in a more compact diameter, fitting into smaller spaces without modifications to your chassis. This motor features a 4-POLE 12-SLOT design that boasts exceptional EFFICIENCY and produces LESS HEAT. 

It is the perfect upgrade for any for 1/8, 1/7 and 1/6 scale vehicles weighing up to 18lbs and up to 8s LiPo. Vehicle examples include Losi LST2-E, Arrma Limitless, Typhon 6s, Kraton 6s, Kraton EXB, Infraction Felony 6s, Notorious 6s, Talion 6s, Kyosho Inferno, Traxxas E-Maxx, E-Revo, UDR, Summit and Redcat Shredder. 

Without a robust and reliable design, efficiency will only go so far. RC enthusiasts love pushing their equipment to the edge. The Castle engineers know this and spared no expense when developing a design that could hold up to the harsh conditions that the RC community will throw at it, resulting in a cooler running motor. A cooler motor has a longer lifetime. Construction of this motor required careful component selection; each verified through internal testing to ensure the HIGHEST EFFICIENCY possible. In the end, the result is a motor with unmatched quality, performance, and reliability. Castle wouldn’t put their name on anything less.

  • High-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with High-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions.
  • Oversized NMB bearings and vibration dampening system ensure the longest bearing life possible.
  • Proprietary winding techniques allow Castle to produce a stator assembly that is the lowest possible resistance, resulting in a cooler running motor.
  • Running modes include Sensored and an ULTRA-EFFICIENT sensorless mode.
  • Updated modern and sleek design; looks as cool as it performs.
  • IMPROVED 4-POLE 12-SLOT design boasts exceptional EFFICIENCY and produces LESS HEAT.
  • QUIETSENSE™ technology shields the sensors from magnetic field noise generated from the motor coils and keeps your motor and ESC in sync at all times. Use of a Flux Shield™ in conjunction with secondary Sense Magnets delivers even HIGHER PRECISION and MORE EFFICIENT startups.
  • OPTIMIZED design eliminates the need for mechanical timing adjustments. Our sensor alignment method delivers uniform timing and torque in both directions, automatically.
  • Updated modern and sleek design; looks as cool as it performs.
  • You will reap the benefits of longer run times on one battery and a cooler running motor that can be pushed harder.

Tech Notes:
  • This motor includes 10AWG wire and 6.5mm connectors.
  • Running modes: SMARTSENSE™, Sensored, Sensorless with Castle sensored capable ESCs.
  • Water Resistant Design: The sensor board is coated with silicone conformal coating to protect the sensors from moisture. The sensor connections are not water resistant; water can cause signal loss which could result in loss of sensored capabilities. Castle recommended applying dielectric grease to the outside of the sensor wire connections after installation of the wire. Routine maintenance is recommended after running in wet conditions. Please refer to this document for running and maintaining motors in wet environments.
