The XeRun AXE brushless system, which has overturned the tradition, broken the routine, pushed the limits and overcome all the track conditions, is a sensored brushless power system specially designed for rock crawlers. The AXE system features a wide range of features.

FOC (Field Oriented Control) for Super Linearity & High Torque
New sensor technology has changed the feel, performance, and overall tune-ability of the new AXE ESC and Motor in ways some have never experienced. Field Oriented Control (FOC) is the name of this new tech, and is something all new to the scale trail, rock racing, and RC world in-general. This new style of sensor allows extremely accurate control and sensing of the motor while maintaining extreme performance and reliability. The motor and ESC are able to match the RPM of the motor to your throttle position under all driving conditions. This greatly improves downhill driving giving this system the ability to drive down hill under complete control.

High Driving Efficiency for Long Runtime
Extremely efficient design comes from the combination of new methods. The FOC technology provides significant improvements to overall motor performance when compared to standard BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) setups. Runtime is increased dramatically while maintaining exceptional levels of power and response.

Intelligent Torque Output & Closed-loop Speed Control for Easy Control
Not just a new ESC and motor, the new FOC tech, combined with intelligent torque output and closed loop speed control mean the ESC and motor will maintain the motor’s Torque level and RPM as the vehicles conditions change. Uphill, downhill, under load, you name it, your AXE system will do what you’re telling it to do.

Patented “Staggered Pole” Rotor Design for Ultra-low Torque Ripple
The new AXE motor not only has a new sensor design, but compared to other rock crawler design motors uses an improved staggered pole rotor design. What does this mean? Smoother operation with no cogging, and very clean and consistent deceleration. Smoother brakes, smoother power, and transitions between each are improved. This is specific to trail and rock crawling and allows extremely precise throttle control under any load conditions.

Built-in High-precision Magnetic Encoder
A high precision magnetic encoder is first used in this RC motor to ensure precise and consistent signal is provided to the ESC. This allows the ESC to get much more accurate information from the motor (for example, the precision of the rotor position signal has been improved by 60 times) than standard “Hall sensors" and provides improved performance and efficiency.

Applicable to All Weather & Track Conditions
The IP-67 waterproof has been taken to a new level with the AXE System. Completely sealed ESC design with robust heatsink case design ensure the ESC is ready for anything you throw at it. The motor as well, is sealed, and combines a completely new sensor harness. No messy extra steps to make your system water proof.

Innovative Sensor Harness Design
An all new sensor harness is more than just water proof, and will take on all element from water to mud and dirt/dust. No need for anything extra, o-ring sealed, and uses a screw together design to ensure it won’t come loose.

Professional Drag Brake Adjustments & Super Slope Parking Ability
Not just a new ESC and motor, the new FOC tech, combined with intelligent torque output and closed loop speed control mean the ESC and motor will maintain the motor’s Torque level and RPM as the vehicles conditions change. Uphill, downhill, under load, you name it, your AXE system will do what you’re telling it to do.

Built-in Bluetooth Module for Connecting the Mobile APP Directly
Built in Bluetooth connectivity means exactly that. The ESC has Blue Tooth built right in! Nothing extra is needed to access the ESC’s complete on board programming but your smart phone and the Free HOBBYWING App. That’s right folks, the Bluetooth feature is BUILT INTO the ESC. No extra devices, wires or connections required!

Multiple Programmable Items
With enough settings to keep your vehicle running “just right”, there are also timing/boost settings, just in case it’s not fast enough, this feature allows you to unleash some extra top speed from your AXE System. Sometimes the trails are long and winding, so more wheel speed is welcome!
