Quote from: teslahed on Saturday,April 27, 2013, 18:51:33 If you were building a multirotor for professional video work you';d probably spend quite a lot more on high quality motors and you';d expect them to run much more smoothly straight out of the box than your average £10 motor. The reduction in vibrations are likely worth the money if you are doing it professionally. For hobbyists like ourselves there is a lot to be said for shopping around until you find a nice £10-£15 motor and then spending a bit of time balancing it yourself if you really want good performance without spending silly money. I think the KEDA motors offer good value for money myself and if you ask around you';ll find people that have been flying a while quickly develop favorite brands that they know and trust. Anything with a bolt on prop adapter will probably run better than the ';collet'; style of pinching prop adapter, in my experience. Cheap and nasty motors have a tendancy not to run smoothly and will produce excessive vibrations. The bearings may be lower quality, they may break more easily and the general machine work may be of lower quality. Often they use enamelled magnet wire on the output wires instead of decent flex cable - so they will work for a bit but if you bend the motor wires repeatedly they will eventually snap off. These things do make a difference - but I';ve not yet found it necessary to spend more than £15 on a motor myself...
