Castle 2028 Sensored Motor - 1100Kv

Product #: 060-0087-00

We take OVERPOWERING seriously.

The BRAND NEW Castle 2028 Extreme 1100KV motor is a 4-POLE 12-SLOT design that boasts exceptional EFFICIENCY and produces LESS HEAT.  If you need LARGE-SCALE POWER for LARGE-SCALE VEHICLES the new BRUSHLESS SENSORED 2028-1100KV motor will no doubt hold up to the heavy throttle and extended usage that 1/6th scale vehicles like the Arrma Kraton 8s and Traxxas X-Maxx encounter. It is the perfect upgrade for any 1:6 scale RC hobby vehicles (including gas to electric conversions) weighing up to 30 lbs. The 2028 Extreme can easily run in the 10 horsepower range*          

*Burst power output for durations typical of vehicle acceleration. FEATURES:
  • Running modes include Sensored and an ULTRA-EFFICIENT sensorless mode.
  • 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.
  • Our proprietary winding techniques allow us to produce a stator assembly that is the lowest possible resistance, resulting in a cooler running motor.
  • Dual sensor ports to ensure optimal installation in your large-scale vehicle.
  • Updated modern and sleek design; looks as cool as it performs.

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 our 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. We wouldn’t put our name on anything less.

Items Needed for Operation: Compatible Electronic Speed Control (ESC) (see Recommended ESC(s) below)
Product Use Statements: Monitor motor temperatures closely; overheating a motor will cause permanent damage to the magnets. Never exceed 180° F on the the motor or ESC.
Do not use mounting screws that extend more than 5mm into the front of the motor. Using too long of a screw can result in damage to the motor's windings and will not be covered by the warranty.
Application Guidelines: The 2028-1100KV is a 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. We recommend 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.

Recommend starting gearing (pinion/spur) for 8s operation in popular vehicles:
Traxxas X-Maxx - 23/35 (mod 1.5) or 34/54 (mod 1.0)
Arrma Kraton 8s - 32/47
Tire size, driving style, driving conditions, battery quality and connectors can impact vehicle performance and acceptable gearing.

Sensored Motor Quick Start

Castle Creations, Inc. warrants this product to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of one year from date of purchase.

This is a high power product with the potential to be very dangerous. Please read the safety information before use. This product may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and or birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Motor designed in Olathe, Kansas USA.
Motor made in China.

  • Our 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.
  • Our 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.

We take OVERPOWERING seriously.

Castle engineers always add a little something extra in their designs that takes your performance to the next level. We have not skimped here. Many customers have utilized our industry leading software functionality that Castle Link* offers. When paired with a Castle Creations sensor supported ESC, you can unlock advanced tuning capabilities that Castle Link provides specifically for sensored motors.

SMARTSENSE™ uses the motors sensors to start the motor to provide smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle’s ULTRA- EFFICIENT sensorless mode. When running, a motor must transition between different load points and a different timing advance is required for optimal efficiency at all load points. Using mechanical timing adjustments alone, you can only target one driving condition, such as higher start power or higher top end speed. This sacrifices performance and efficiency during the other driving phases. Electronic timing in SMARTSENSE™ will advance timing automatically for peak performance during all driving conditions. This allows users to combine the best of both worlds in an unrivaled HYBRID between smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless drive.

With a Castle sensored ESC and sensored motor you will have the ULTIMATE POWER PLANT for your vehicle. Users will experience PRECISE throttle control, BUTTERY SMOOTH starts, PEAK PERFORMANCE and EFFICIENCY throughout the full throttle range. You will feel the POWER and LONGER RUN TIMES that a WORLD-CLASS motor produces.

It’s not magic… it’s SMARTSENSE™.
