About Cobra

Cobra Motors and Speed Controllers were designed 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!

Inside Cobra Motors you will find many features that can only be seen in more expensive Premium grade products. The stators are made with laminations that are only 0.2mm thick for maximum efficiency and minimum Eddy Current loses. The motor front housings feature built-in magnet spacers that lock the magnets in place in perfect alignment with one another, and reinforce the glue joints for maximum bonding strength. On the larger size motors, there is a lip on the back edge of the rotor can that captures the magnets and prevents them from shifting under the highest power loads. The bearings used in Cobra motors are much larger than most other brands of motors for increased life and durability, and resistance to damage from the occasional 'Rough Landing'.

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.

Innov8tive Designs has taken the time to painstakingly test every motor on dozens of different propellers, and put that information together in concise, easy to use propeller data charts. With the data available on these charts, you can see exactly what performance you will get from the motor on each prop tested. No more guessing and going through 5-6 props to find the 'Right One' for your motor. You can put the motor in your aircraft and know exactly how much thrust you will get, how fast the model will fly, how much current the motor will draw and how many watts of power it will produce!

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.

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, you owe it to yourself to use Cobra Motors and Speed Controllers. Cobra Power Systems, Built for Performance!
