Twenty years in the making

Some twenty years after watching my first Battlebots episode, I am still amazed at the power and efficiency of axial flux motors. The speed and power of those ETEK powered machines set me on the path of building my own. I just saw a single drawback; there is only one rotor in the ETEK motor Briggs and Stratton developed with Cedric Lynch. So I took on the challenge to develop a multi rotor axial flux motor.

Since then, there have been improvements to the technology, dual rotors, brushless control, and liquid cooling. But still no multi rotor motors other than the aforementioned dual rotor setup. In fact, the closest we have come is two or more brushless motors mounted back to back on a common frame complete with dual speed control, cases, bearings, and shafts.

My aim back then--and now--- is to develop and deliver a multi rotor axial flux machine that is efficient and affordable.

We'll soon announce mission accomplished. Keep an eye on this page more information.

We call our machines Multi Rotor since the number of rotors are no longer limited from one to three rotors. Our prototype is 5 rotors and under 5 inches in diameter. The advantage of our patent pendin
