In 1987 the Scorpion Power System Ltd was founded by Georges, an avid RC enthusiast, for the purpose of manufacturing the highest quality glow plugs available for both sport and competition flying. These original Scorpion products received wide acclaim throughout Europe and Asia during the late 80's, and were frequently found in the winners circles of national competitions. Over the years, the Scorpion Company grew and diversified, moving into other areas of manufacturing, but through these changes, Georges maintained his love for the RC hobby, and continued flying and competing.
As the RC hobby evolved and electric power systems became more popular, Georges became interested in electric flight and competed in electric pattern and pylon racing events. Unfortunately, the electric power systems that were commercially available at that time could not hold up the stress of competition, and many flights ended with a trail of smoke coming from the motor, speed controller, and occasionally both. After searching for several years to find a power system that could withstand the rigors of serious competition, Georges realized that there were not that many, and saw this as an opportunity to provide a quality product for electric flyers. To this end, George set aside a portion of his manufacturing facility, hired a team of design engineers, and set forth the following challenge: "Design me a motor and speed controller that I cannot burn up. Find the best materials that are available, and use them to make a motor that can take the heat of competition."
After several years of development and testing, the end result is the Scorpion Brushless Motors and Speed Controllers that we now offer to modelers worldwide. These products can take the heat of competition and come back for more. Their Motors and Speed Controllers are not limited to competition use, and perform exceptionally well in all types of electric RC models.
In the fall of 2006, Scorpion Products were introduced to the modeling public through a series of Beta test programs, and this feedback further refined the product to the finished form that is presented here in this catalog. The first Scorpion products were made available in January of 2007, and they have rapidly become the favorite motors and speed controllers for modelers all over the world.
