LRP electronic GmbH Wilhelm-Enssle-Str. 132-134, 73630 Remshalden, Germany Tel.: int+49-7181-4098-0, Fax: int+49-7181-4098-30 INFO@LRP-ELECTRONIC.DE WWW.LRP-ELECTRONIC.DE SPECIFICATION VECTOR 4-Star VECTOR 3-Star ! WARNING NOTES IMPORTANT: Pay close attention to the following points, as they will destroy the motor and void your warranty: • Never solder a Schottky diode to the motor or the speed-control when you are using a LRP VECTOR Brushless Modiﬁ ed motor. • Avoid soldering longer then 5sec per soldering joint when replacing the power wires to prevent possible damage to the motor due to overheating of the components!

Speciﬁ cations subject to change without notice. • Never connect the motor incorrectly or with reversed polarity. • All wires and connections have to be well insulated. Short-circuits can destroy the motor. • Avoid overtightening the motor screws. Damaged threads are not covered by warranty! TIMING • Install the motor in the model. CAUTION! The maximum length of the motor screws shall not exceed 8mm. • Connect the motor and the speed-control, using the Hall-Sensor wire. C + B blue yellow orange INSTALLATION / CONNECTIONS -A • Connect the power wires of the speedcontrol to the motor. You can do this by using the pre-assembled motor plugs or by soldering on the power wires directly to the motor. • CAUTION! Make sure, that the polarity is C B A With the LRP VECTOR Brushless Modiﬁ ed motor, you have the possibility to change the timing. The factory setting is position 2. You can easily see this by checking the mark on the plastic ring and the corresponding timing scale on the motor can. This setting is the best compromise between performance, runtime and torque. By altering the timing, you change the characteristics of the motor. With a higher timing, the motor revs higher, but has less torque. We recommend to use the factory setting. It is the best for most applications. Please note: You need to use a shorter gearing, when using a higher timing. When using a LRP SPHERE COMPETITION speedo with ADPC proﬁ les 3-6, the timing of the motor has to be set to 2. To change the timing, do the following: 1. Loosen the 3 screws on the backplate of the motor. 2. Turn the plastic ring with the timimg mark to the desired timing position. You can use a small screwdriver to turn the plastic ring, if necessary. Please note: To change the timing, you only need to turn the plastic ring with the timing mark. Do not try to turn the whole backplate of the motor. 3. Re-tighten the 3 screws on the backplate of the motor again. Hall-Sensor wire right by checking the color code and the letters: - MOT.A = blue wire - MOT.B = yellow wire - MOT.C = orange wire • Finally check all the connections before using the motor. HALL-SENSOR WIRE: This bi-directional multipole wire connects the speed-control and the motor. Do not alter or modify this cable! The Hall-Sensor wire is imminent for the use of the LRP VECTOR Brushless Modiﬁ ed motor. Connect the motor to the speed-control, by using this wire and make sure, that the plugs have a proper and tight ﬁ t. There are replaceable hall sensor wires available: • #81910 (20cm) • #81920 (10cm) POWER WIRES: The LRP VECTOR Brushless Modiﬁ ed comes pre-wired using common motor connectors. It‘s simply „plug & play“ when you intend using a LRP SPHERE speed-control. You can also use normal power wires (a complete set of power wires is included with the LRP SPHERE and SPHERE COMPETITION) and solder them directly to the motor if you prefer to use a „hardwired“ wire setup. The unique splitted solder-tabs allow easy and convenient replacement of the power wires. Nevertheless some soldering skills are required. Talk to your local hobbyshop if you are concerned about replacing the wires yourself. There is a replacement power wire set available: #82505 CAUTION: Avoid soldering longer then 5sec per soldering joint when replacing the power wires to prevent possible damage to the speed-control due to overheating of the components! GEARING DISASSEMBLY Due to the maintenance free design of the LRP VECTOR Brushless Modiﬁ ed motor, it is not necessary to open the motor under normal conditions. Nevertheless, if you intend to check the ball bearings and oil them from time to time, you can disassemble the motor. Disassembling of the motor: 1. Remove the 3 screws at the front of the motor and take off the front cover. You can now take out the ball bearing to clean it or, if necessary, to oil it. 2. Carefully take the magnet out of the can. IMPORTANT! There are two spacers on the front and back of the shaft. They both have a different length. Please be sure to use the right lenght spacer on the front and rear when putting the magnet back into the can. This does not apply to the 4-Star motor. The motor already has ﬁ xed spacers. 3. Remove the 3 screws from the back of the motor and take off the backplate. You can now take out the ball bearing to clean it or, if necessary, to oil it. 4. To re-assemble the motor, begin with step 3. Double-check, that you use the right lenght spacers on the magnet shaft and be sure to re-tighten alls screws securely. VECTOR 4-Star Never overgear your LRP VECTOR Brushless Modiﬁ ed motor. A wrong gear-ratio causes much more heating and may result in a temperature shutdown of your speed-control under extreme conditions. Due to the unique VECTOR brushless design, this motor needs to be geared much lower then normal brushed motors. Take your kits instruction manual to ﬁ nd the correct pinion.
