I will show you how to to test motor spin direction after connecting it to an ESC. You want to make sure all the motors on your quadcopter rotate in the correct direction. Otherwise it will flip over (or freak out) when you try to take off.
I have been using the R5 motors for a while and like them a lot. After hearing many complaints about the bearings on those motors, I am super excited about the release of the Brotherhobby R6 2306 motors which better durability.
The Robotdog RD2205 motor by FPVModel is another budget motor for light weight 5″ builds that require low and mid KV.
I received these DYS Samguk Shu 2306 motors back in December last year, but I just haven’t had the time to test them properly. So without further delay I just wanted to give them an overview and show you these motors.
There are so many choices for brushless motor out there for mini quad, it’s hard to decide. The “best mini quad motor” doesn’t exist because every motor performs differently. It all comes down to finding the balance, what’s more important to your flying style and how much you are willing to pay.
The differences between 2306 and 2207 mini quad motors are often discussed. In this article I will share my understanding and experience to help you pick a suitable motor size for your next quadcopter build.
The Brotherhobby R5 2306 2450KV motors were released a year ago, but remain one of the most popular motor choice for freestyle mini quad. These motors are so good they are re-branded by many companies under different names with slightly different KV, but essentially the same design and construction.
The Mark1 2306 motors from RCINPower are designed specifically for 5S and 6S LiPo batteries and 5″ propellers. In this review we will take a look at the build quality and how they perform.
Race Wire is basically motor wire extension in the form of circuit board. At first glance, it’s only as useful as a piece of wire and many consider it as a gimmick to make money, while some say it’s a godsend for FPV racers. Let’s find out whether or not Race Wire is for you.
I tested some high KV motors with 6S and the result is pretty interesting. Generally it’s recommended to use low KV motors around 1700KV for 6S and 5″ propellers. But when I first heard the idea of using high KV motors on 6S I was a bit skeptical so I decided to find out for myself :)
The Dragonfly Hurricane 2207 motors from FPVModel are affordable yet feature some of the latest designs in mini quad motors. In this review we will take a close look at the build quality and features.
The Returner R3 2206 1720KV is designed primarily for long range 4S quadcopters running 6″ or 7″ propellers. However, this is not what I am using them for :) Although these motors are only rated for 3S and 4S, I was told by Brotherhobby they can support up to 6S on 5″ props thanks to the low KV… Are you ready for some POWAH ?!
