The RCbenchmark Series 1520 is accurate and reliable. Obtain the critical data you need to enhance your flight performance.Download Datasheet
5 kgf (11 lbf)
40 A Continuous
Test Brushless Motors
Characterize electric motor power consumption
The accurate strain gauge load cell measures up to 5 kgf with ±0.5% tolerance. The thrust stand controls your motor and communicates measured data to the software via USB.
Includes all the components you will need
The hardware is designed for simple installation and fits most motors. The entire stand can be assembled in a few minutes and then you are ready to start testing.
The thrust stand comes factory calibrated, but for peace of mind, you can recalibrate the load cell with the precision calibration weight provided.
Powerful and User-Friendly Software
Control your thrust stand and record your data
The RCbenchmark software has many powerful features such as automatic control, real-time feedback, CSV data output, and configurable safety limits that can automatically stop tests.Download the Software
Optional Optical RPM Probe
Characterize motor rotation speed
The RCbenchmark Series 1520 Thrust Stand already includes an easy to use electrical RPM sensor. For Kv <700 or for high-speed motors (>50k RPM), you may need the optical RPM sensor.Buy Now
