We recently received a set of these SE2008 2550KV motors from DYS. What’s interesting is the smaller stator diameter of 20mm instead of the common 22mm. I also run it on my thrust stand to see what size propellers perform well.
In this post we tested a new player in mini quad motor, the Tornado T1 2205 2600KV motor by BrotherHobby.
Anton from CapeFPV team shared with us how to get better and more linear throttle response, by doing ESC (BLheli) and flight controller (Cleanflight) calibration and configuration.
DYS’s new SE2205 motors addressed quite a few issues we have been hearing on the RS2205 and some other popular quadcopter motors, performance is top of the league too, check it out.
The EMAX RS2205 motors are awesome! From my thrust result they completely destroyed the Cobra motor.
We recently tested the 2206 2800KV motors from DragonFly, which are designed for mini quads that runs 4″ props, mainly 180 size quadcopter I would assume. I am happy with the thrust results and can’t wait to put them on my next 180 mini quad build.
Angled motor mounts allows the motors on a quadcopter to tilt forward, and it’s getting more and more popular amongst FPV mini quad racers. I get asked a lot about it and here is some info about the benefit of using angled motor mounts, and things you should be aware when using them.
As 180 Size mini quads are getting more and more popular, many people ask what is the best motor for this type of small quadcopters that runs on 4 inch props.
Today we will be reviewing the FPVModel MC2206 2000KV motors. This 2206 class motors are designed for FPV racing mini quad. If you are looking for more speed than 1806 or 2204 motors, this could be a good choice. They are also doing a deal on “buy 4 get 1 free” offer, at $18 each, not bad!
I was asked what the differences between are EMAX MT1806 2280KV, EMAX MT1804 2480KV, and EMAX MT2204 2300KV Motors. And which one is the best motor for 250 size mini quad? These motors are very similar in price, mainly different in weight, size, and power. It’s not always true “the more powerful the better”. Stronger motors also draws more current, thus gives you less flight time. Finding a good balance, or knowing what you are after is the key here.
When choosing motors and propellers combo, we often just listen to rumours, or what’s suggested by the manufactures. To determine the optimal motor and propellers combination for your quadcopter and multirotors, the most scientific way is to test it yourself. I tried to look for a ready-made motor thrust measuring stand, most of them are either too heavy (made of metal), too expensive, or out of stock. Looks like it’s time for some DIY fun.
