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

Trust me, it´s worth it. Nothing but crap from those NTM´s. Better stay away from them..

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.

So the SunnySky X2212 KV980 cannot handle 4s?
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' , I wonder whats different? I've just checked & the main stats & part are identical; Japanese NMB bearing, Kawasaki stator steel, magnets, etc.
