Falcon 500

Falcon 500

217-6515

The Falcon 500, powered by Talon FX, is a Brushless Motor co-developed through a collaborative partnership between VEX Robotics and Cross the Road Electronics. This is the same partnership that brought the cutting edge Talon SRX and Victor SPX to the FIRST® Robotics Competition.

It is designed to give teams previously unheard of amounts of power and efficiency, the Falcon 500 reduces size, weight, and common failure points of other motors in the market.

Learn more here.

Additional features include:

  • 400W Power @ 40A / 12VDC
  • Peak Efficiency of 87%
  • Integrated Talon FX Motor Controller
  • 14T Splined Output Shaft
  • Optional cooling port
  • 1.1 lbs, total weight

Note: We've found that some Falcons built during the first year (date code beginning in 19 or 200) may not have had Loctite properly applied to the shaft retaining screws. To be safe, we recommend that teams with first year motors open up them up and reapply Loctite 243 to all the shaft retention screws.

Falcon 500's are temporarily out of stock.

We are doing everything possible to ensure that current backorders ship in time for 2020 FRC competitions. However, Falcon production has been significantly impacted by the coronavirus / COVID-19 outbreak. Due to the unprecedented nature of this situation, we cannot confirm how long the delays will last for existing backorders. You can learn more about the global supply chain impact of coronavirus with this article from the Washington Post.

If you have any concerns about an existing order, please contact sales@vex.com or 903-453-0802
