if you were going to buy sunnysky motors for a tbs discovery which would you chose and why?

theres been alot of good talk about these motors and i want some ,but which ones?

 

keep in mind prop size as we dont wanna see them in  videos so i am thinking a max of 10 inch prop.

 

i would like the option of 3s and 4s lipo.

I was quite pleased with the 2216 800kV motors and 10" Graupners. I also crashed recently and destroyed all of them, so I changed to RCTimer HP 2217 930kV motors and 9" Graupners. Another great combo! You'll definitely save some dough going with the RCTimers (they come from the same factory as the sunny skys)

Either 800Kv or 900Kv & I wouldn't go bigger than 9" props on the Disco.

 

I use the 900Kv MT2216-11 T-motors with 9" Graupners on my Disco.

NO! the RCTimer motors have nothing to do with SunnySky motors & are NOT made in the same factory, they just look similar.

Oh! Ok, I'm sorry then, I read that they were, and they are indistinguishable from my sunnyskys - other than the fact they are blue ;-)

And the ones I got are very good quality, same quality as the sunnyskys. But if try are not from the same factory, I'm fine with that. They are still a great motor.

Yep even the SunnySky engineer thought they looked very similar but pointed out a few differences.

 

 

The 900Kv SunnySky 2216-11 from Vocanlo but at that price you would be better off getting the MT2216/11 T-motors!

Hey that sounds really good, but after looking at the specs on foxtech, those motors are rated for 3s.... how are they handeling 4s??? I'm really interested because i to am looking to upgrade my motors as helizrnew2me.

the manufactures are just being a little bit vigilant with the specs i suppose. works just fine with 4s. I also use this motor on my iconic-x frame. doesn't even get hot after abusived for 8-9 mins. 4s with 9 inch graupner (or 8inch CF) props really rocks  ;)

I don't have Fatshark gear (apart from some antennas, but if you are talking about their cameras, I believe they are 5volt. A 3S lipo is 11.1V which will burn your camera.

 

Someone here might be able to help better though. Be careful, and welcome to OP. :)
