Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Hi I have ordered a tarot fy680 frame but cant seem to find any good motors instock, I have a budget around £200 for the motors and im looking for something around 500-750kv, I plan to use the hex for aerial photography using a sony nex, so im looking for smooth flight rather than fast flight.

please help!! :help: :help: :help:

Tiger Motor MT2814 770kv from Electriflit have worked well for me and others.

Just over your budget but worth it in my experience so far.

with Xaor props oh so smooth

sorry to go of topic a little.
I too  have just order the FY680 .
I am just wondering what  all up weight are you expecting with the sony etc...?

My budget was smaller than yours  for motors and I have order a set of 850kv from
unmannedtech .

steve fh

depending on all up weight you may find that MT2216 900kv  give you enough thrust and are in budget

I went 2814 on my quad as i plan to upgrade to a hex down the line to lift a SLR

Those motors of mine are back in stock at HK now. I got an email today telling me that my order has been dispatched. Whippee! Only two weeks to wait before I have two more motors.

hi steve, I do like the t-motors bt that version is very heavy, im looking for something a bit lighter but will still have the power.

hi dazza, im not sure yet of the total weight because ive not picked a gimbal.

hi stef, I just went to order some but there still sold out, last night they where -17 on back order so they must of sold out straight away :banghead:

Take a look at the full tiger 22mm range as they are some light but powerfully options such as

Yea as Mike says they do look like very nice motors  ~~


I';ve bought a dozen of the NTM 28';s. The motors are nicely balanced esp for a cheap motor, but
I wish their 18-point QC plan covered a bit more how well the holes in the top are placed and threaded.

Of the set I have 4 have come in so that no prop adapter/holder will go on easily.

The "good" motors accept adapters that bolt on with the lightest of pressure on the  key/screwdriver; the bad ones you need some wrist action, the bolts tend to stick no matter the protocol to tighten them up, and they come out again with bruised threads. These are signs the motor will buzz a bit even without the prop in there because the adapter is not centred well enough.

By my rough calcs around 50% of the adapter bolt holes are out by at least .2mm.
(Around 1 in 3 show some obstruction across the 3rd hole when you get 2 lined up exactly with the holes in the adapter).

But (luckily) it';s not a consistent error so you can end up with motors where everything aligns perfectly.

Anyway, I managed to get 2 sets of 4 motors that humm at full revs using a 4s, so I';m happy.

The 4 bad ';uns can go onto planes. Or maybe I';ll just glue the prop adapters to the motors to get them centred right.

And there';s always slignshot ammo.

Moral: if you';re fussy fussy fussy (and we';re all really fussy, right?) you need 6 propdrives to find 4 really really good ones.


Thanks for the heads up Kym it maybe worth paying a bit more and buying something a bit better quality then  ~~


Writing off the ones with poor alignment, the good NTM';s are still costing you around 30 usd each these days. And every time I look at Hobby K the price seems to be falling. :)
