miniPRO R/C 2WD Chassis Dyno


MiniPro have introduced a new 2WD version of their chassis dynamometer (dyno). The chassis dynamometer (dyno) measures the rpm, kv, voltage, current draw, power and torque output of your vehicle. The dyno is great tool for motor analysis, ESC (boost) adjustment, brushless sensor adjustment, gearing calculation, tire selections, and much more. The dyno is coupled with to a knurled roller via a pulley and belt to accelerate the inertial mass. MiniPro will call this a ‘flywheel’ for simplicity. miniPRO’s electronic board takes the flywheel’s inertia (resistance of an object to a change in its state of motion), measures the rate it takes to accelerate and calculates the output power and torque of your vehicle. The dyno repeatedly measures and calculates power in small increments to produce an accurate graph on a PC of the engine’s power characteristics.

Technical specifications:

  • Torque: 2N/m Max (with GT2 2mm Belt)
  • RPM: 100K Max
  • Units: English & Metric
  • Adjustable Reading and Logging Rate: Up to 50Hz
