I bought six of this motors for my hexa. Two of them has scratch noise then I quickly turn them by my hand. And they have little backlash then I try to shake rotor perpendicular spin axis only in some position.
Are that defective motor or not? What shall I do with it?
Tested this motor with a 10x4.7 slow fly prop, 30 amp esc and 3s 20c lipo battery. I was quite skeptical about this motor due to the bargin price. Anyway, here are my results:
180 watts and 18 amps
The motor gets warm at full throttle. Yet, I never need to use full throttle. This motor is powerful. It is also a smooth and quiet. My other motors aren't as smooth. My slow stick flies with a viciousness now. It gets up high in no time. The motor comes in a plastic case with a prop adapter, mount and information. The cost is under $8, yet it feels like a quality built motor which includes information. I curious to see the lifespan of this motor. Be certain to solder the bullet connectors on well or the motor will stutter like mine did. I had to re-solder the connectors again and it worked. I really like this motor!!

I have 3 of these total... two in a Multiplex TwinStar and one as a backup. They're fantastic motors for the price. I run 8x6 APC electric props on them (not the SloFly models, the standard electric props) and they always come down cool. 9x6 prop stressed them a bit. 8x6 was the sweet spot. Efficiency is awesome on these, too. I can fly for about 15 to 20 minutes and only use 1100mAh on my 2200mAh packs. Great stuff!
