Hi,
I have backordered 4 of it http://www.hobbyking...?idProduct=5691 but i don't want to wait anymore time so i'll change. For the same range of price or some more 5$(max), what will you recommend me?

My quad will look like http://wiki.openpilo...asic QuadCopter

Can you recommend the props for the motor too?


Thanks

That could work, let says that your quad will be over 450mm between motor you can use 10x4.5 prop with that motor or even 11 remember that they sell the prop adaptor separately

You could also use the KDA20-22L. It's being used on a lot of quads with approx. the same dimensions.

The distance between motor is the green line on your picture, take the reference always between opposite motors.

From what I know yes because it use 3 screw to be fixed like the AXI motor instead of 4 screw like most other motor.

The Keda 2217 are really smooth the only cons is the soft shaft and I used mine on a folding quad frame from quadframe.com

Dacat I highly recommend the Graupner elektro prop I use 10x5 on a xaircraft 450 and they are really nice out of the packet however they could come with a few shaft ring spacer thingy. Keep in mind that they are a bit fragile prop if you hit something always check the blade because mine started to split before breaking just a thought.

Hi Metro,

i would go for the 11" porps ... it seems to be the better setup
if you are from Porto ... don´t you have any loakel store rc stuff?
Check out if they have the Graupner e-prop 11"x5
i know they are not cheap... but what i hear ... they are worth the money for such a powerfull motor
