Scorpion Power Systems
"In 1987 the Scorpion Power System Ltd was founded by Georges, an avid RC enthusiast, for the purpose of manufacturing the highest quality glow plugs available for both sport and competition flying. These original Scorpion products received wide acclaim throughout Europe and Asia during the late 80's, and were frequently found in the winners circles of national competitions. Over the years, the Scorpion Company grew and diversified, moving into other areas of manufacturing, but through these changes, Georges maintained his love for the RC hobby, and continued flying and competing.
As the RC hobby evolved and electric power systems became more popular, Georges became interested in electric flight and competed in electric pattern and pylon racing events. Unfortunately, the electric power systems that were commercially available at that time could not hold up the stress of competition, and many flights ended with a trail of smoke coming from the motor, speed controller, and occasionally both. After searching for several years to find a power system that could withstand the rigors of serious competition, Georges realized that there were not that many, and saw this as an opportunity to provide a quality product for electric flyers. To this end, George set aside a portion of his manufacturing facility, hired a team of design engineers, and set forth the following challenge: "design a motor and speed controller that I cannot burn up. Find the best materials that are available, and use them to make a motor that can take the heat of competition."
After several years of development and testing, the end result is the Scorpion Brushless Motors and Speed Controllers that we now offer to modelers worldwide. These products can take the heat of competition and come back for more. Our motors and speed controllers are not limited to competition use, and perform exceptionally well in all types of electric RC models. We are so committed of the quality of our brushless motors and speed controllers that we back them with a full 2-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. We know that you have a choice when it comes to purchasing an electric power system for your next model, and we are certain that when you consider the quality, performance and value that our motors and speed controllers offer, the choice is obvious: Scorpion."

Cobra Brushless Motors
"Cobra Motors and Speed Controllers were designed in 2010 based on input and feedback from Innov8tive Designs CEO, Lucien Miller. There was a need in the market for a high-quality, well built, robust motor that could withstand the rigors of everyday use by Sport Flyers. Unlike Competition Pilots, who need the most power that that can be achieved from a motor, whatever the cost, Sport Pilots want a power system that is rugged, reliable and smooth operating. Cobra Power Systems fit that requirement perfectly!
Most other motor manufacturers only offer 1 or 2 different Kv values in each motor size. This makes getting the right motor for your model difficult in many cases. Cobra motors offer 3 or 4 different Kv values, and in some cases, 5 different models to allow the user to get the exact motor needed to match their battery size and propeller restrictions of their particular model. Cobra currently offers 23 different 22mm motors, 16 different 28mm motors, 14 different 35mm motors and 9 different 41mm motors for a total of 62 models. With that much selection, you can get a motor that is a perfect fit for your model.
In 2014, Cobra began adding a full lineup of new motors that were specifically designed for Multirotors. There are 29 motors currently available in 22mm, 28mm, 35mm, 40mm and 45mm sizes, with more being added on a regular basis.
Cobra also produces a full line of eight different speed controllers, from 11 amps up to 150 amps, to compliment the full range of motors that are available. All of the larger speed controllers from 33 amps and up feature switching type BEC circuits to meet the demands of the higher power digital servos that are so popular today. All of the available parameters of the Cobra speed controllers can be easily set with the Cobra ESC programming card.
To compliment the new Multirotor motors, Cobra has developed a full line of matching ESC’s in sizes from 12 to 100 amps, in both Opto-Coupled and BEC versions.
If all that was not already enough, all Cobra motors are backed with a 2-year warranty against manufacturing defects, and the Cobra Speed controllers carry a 6-month warranty. If you are in the market for a well built, dependable power system for your next sport model, or multirotor aircraft, you owe it to yourself to use Cobra Motors and Speed Controllers.

High Quality Prop (HQProp)
"HQ Props have become extremely popular for use in multirotors, especially in the smaller 250mm to 300mm FPV Racing Quads. These props are available in a wide variety of sizes, colors and materials to allow you to get the best match for your multirotor aircraft. All of HQ Props are available in both normal and reverse rotation as needed for use in multirotors. The standard props are made with a glass fiber fill for extra strength and durability, and come in Black, Green and Orange colors. The Carbon Composition props feature a carbon fiber fill for extra stiffness, and are only available in black. HQProps include the following series of propellers: SF series, MR series, E series, 3D series, and DD series."

"APC model airplane propellers have enjoyed strong acceptance and growth since their introduction in 1989. They are especially popular in pattern and racing events. The performance and low noise advantages are largely due to the precision methods American Landing Products uses to design and manufacture propellers.
Landing Products preserves a close rapport with the competition community to benefit from the technical interchange that is so important to improved designs. There is continuous evolution in aircraft design and engine performance. Consequently, propeller design must continuously evolve as well to keep pace with these improving technologies."
