I usually use NTM 28-36 750KV in my quad. Lately there are some people talking about the sunnysky, should I try the SUNNYSKY X2212 KV980? Are they better than the NTM?

 

 

Thanks

Should the ones I posted perform similar to the NTM about power, flying time, etc?

PS: the quad

Obviously they have a different KV rating than your 750kv NTM's so wont perform the same, THESE are closer to your NTM's & would be better on a 480 size frame.

But these are 10$ more each motor, thanks for your help :)

I just got SS 2212 980kv motors and rebuilt my HT-FPV (last night). I am using 8" gemfan props and it is soo smooth. It sets in a hover like naza in gps lock. A buddy has the NTM motors and they dont come close to the SS motors IMHO

i run 4s and 10x5 props on my sunnysky 2212 980`s and they run fine .its a gruapner like airfoil so its like running 9`s in reality .these sunny`s can run 3 or 4s.

 

oh ,and i had some bad ntm`s right out the box .pretty much changed bearings in all 4 .now they run pretty smooth ,but they hog alot of juice .(ntm 2826 1200kv)and i couldnt get decent video with them either they resonate alot .thats been my limited experience with them .

my sunny`s have super smooth bearings

I am running the Sunnysky 2216 900 on my dead cat frame and the motors are so smooth. The only other motors I have used prior to this on my Quads and tri have been the http://www.hobbyking...idProduct=14737

I was amazed how much smoother the SS motors are in comparison. I have not yet mounted a camera on my frame but when I view the picture through my FPV goggles the image is great. Trust me I do think the extra money is worth while.

Thanks all :) right now I can't afford the 10$ more each motor for the 800kv so as I have satisfatory results with the NTM will stay with this for some more time :)

They're not rated for it but some people do use 4S, just don't use too larger prop & do a few test's checking temperature first.

sure they can i run 4s on mine with 10x5 graupner airfoil style props made by gemfan. with a 3300 4s i get over 10 minute flights but i usually bring it in around the 10 minute mark .i dont think 3s would lift my discovery very well .

I've been running 4s on my Sunnysky 2212 980kv for years now without any issues

 

Not sure if you guys are aware but there is now a Version II of these motors.  I got a new set from multirotorsuperstore.com and they're pretty awesome.  super smooth.

I just replaced the NTM28-26 1000KV motors I had on my QAV400 with a set of Sunnysky X2212-13 980KV. The Sunnyskys are pretty much balanced out of the box, have very little cogging torque and feel really smooth. The soft silicon wires are a bonus, and they include all the accessories for mounting!

 

Quick comparison of the sound. These NTMs have had only a couple of hours on my QAV400 and were balanced enough that I couldn't see any jello in my footage, but they sounded horrible.

 

The Sunnyskys sound very clean. I picked mine up from Himodel. It took 3 days to ship via DHL to Australia (about $25) and the motors are $16.76 each (make an account and log in for lower prices).

 

Get the Sunnyskys, they will save you money in the long term.

Oh yes, I didn't notice the 'II' :blush:, I wonder whats different? I've just checked & the main stats & part are identical; Japanese NMB bearing, Kawasaki stator steel, magnets, etc.

Rcbuddy is where I got my series II and I think it said that the shaft was a more hardened one.
