This is the ProTek R/C "TruTemp" Infrared Thermometer. Any temp gun can give you a reading, but the accuracy of that reading is always questioned - especially when dealing with cheap guns from questionable sources. When you have thousands of dollars invested into your equipment, a questionable number isn't good enough. You need accuracy, dependability and simplicity.  

The "TruTemp" is a highly useful non-contact tool specially designed for use with R/C engines, motors, battery packs, battery chargers, electronic speed controllers, as well as hundreds of other applications. To use, simply aim the infrared thermometer at the target and press the measurement button to quickly and easily display the surface temperatures.

Most people think a cheap temp gun is good enough, but cheap temp guns provide untrustworthy measurements. Put your equipment in the hands of precision, with the ProTek R/C TruTemp.

Good little temp gun, I would recommend this to anyone not wanting to spend $250 on the alternative.

ProTek RC "TruTemp" Infrared Thermometer
Great temp gun! Easy to use, very accurate even when tested against much more expensive temp guns too. I have been using this gun for the past several weeks and it has worked extremely well.

The Tru Temp works awesome. It's easy to read at night for club racing and is very accurate. I compared its temps to a very expensive unit and its reads the same (within a degree or two). I highly recommend especially if you're a racer. It also works great for my electric stuff too.

Mine is way off also, reads 231 degrees compared to fluke model 62 and duratrax flashpoint, both read 175 and 176 degrees, all tested at same time and all lenses cleaned, 2 other friends are way off 70 degrees all are within 3 degrees, the hotter it gets the farther off it gets exponentially.
