The Ultimate Battle-Ready Weapon Motor - Now for Ants!

In a groundbreaking first for robot combat, off-the-shelf hubmotors are now a reality! Download the 5022 CAD Here

RESTOCK TIMELINE: This product sold out much faster than anticipated. An order for 200 more has been placed and should take around 60-70 days (Roughly around mid September).

The RDY-5022 Hubmotor is an evolution beyond anything available for combat robots before. Enter the space age, with high-strength 6061 aluminum construction. Massive bearings. Battle-hardened epoxied magnets. Ultra-flexible high-temp silicone wires. Zero weapon belts. These are just some of what you get with your very own hubmotor!

What's Included when you buy a Complete Motor:

  • 1X RDY-5022 complete motor, combat-ready out of the box!
  • 6X M3 flathead screws to clamp halves together
  • 1X M4 center screw

Recommended Extras

This motor is intended to be mounted to a rigid robot frame component and as such does not come with a mounting plate or bracket. You should design to mount BOTH SIDES of the motor to your robot, with frame rails exactly 22mm apart. If you must mount only one side of the motor, always mount the side with wires as this side is connected to the central shaft. 

Specs and Usage


  • Dimensions: ~50mm diameter, 22mm length
  • Stator Size: Roughly 22 X 6mm
  • Weight: 75 grams (2.65 oz, 0.165 lb)
  • Gigantic 6704 bearings
  • KV: 1700kV (This is approximate, actual KV may vary by +/-10%)
  • Voltage: 2S-3S, maybe 4S (tests are ongoing)
  • Power and Current: test data coming soon! Our 35A ESCs are a perfect match.
  • No circlips, belts, or set screws!
  • Super strong neodymium magnets
  • Epoxied magnets and stator coils for extra durability
  • High-temperature copper windings
  • 20AWG silicone wires rated to 200 degrees C
  • Winding Resistance: TBD
  • Designed for use with 5mm or 0.1875 to 0.2" thick weapon blades. Thinner can be used with a spacer, however, due to the clamshell design of this motor, significantly thicker blades can cause issues.

3D Model Available Now!

CAD download includes Sonic's blade with the proper spline geometry needed. We recommend offsetting the spline by about 0.005" (0.15mm) from the actual motor profile for a better weapon blade fit. 

Warning: The outside of this motor is like a big heatsink and can get very hot!

Power and ESCs

For best results, pair with our very own with 35A ESC, AM32 firmware pre-programmed. Note this ESC is programmed bidirectional out of the box, but can be switched to one direction using a USB Programmer

This is a custom motor and not a conventional one so a propeller chart is a useless stat to compare this to. You should use a 30A or greater rated ESC. 

Actual current draw and torque are highly dependent on your exact ESC and configuration, battery, voltage, and loading. Air resistance and tip speed for your weapon play a huge role in the current draw of your system. Even reducing speed by 20% might cut air resistance in half. 


Warning: combat robots are not toys! They are extremely dangerous. Click here for a safety video.

Testing a robot with an active spinning weapon should never be done while maintaining a line of sight with the robot. Ideally, you should be testing inside an enclosed box or arena with at least 1/4" thick polycarbonate windows or top to see through, and 1/2” or thicker plywood or MDF construction. Operation (Including testing) outside of a suitable arena or test box could cause serious injury. By purchasing this product you acknowledge that you are responsible for the safe use of this product and that Team Just ‘Cuz Robotics or its employees are not liable for any injuries or damages.
