It seems that many motor manufacturers are starting to realise that we can get more power without extra weight through higher KV motors and it’s what the community has been crying out for.
I present to you:
The Lumenier RB2204-13 2500Kv SKITZO Special Edition Motor
In an attempt to try and compete with increasing competition from manufacturers such as EMAX with their new Race edition motors and RCX with their 2205s. Lumenier are trying to stay in the game with these special edition motors.
In true Luminier style these motors use all the best components so you can get the extra little performance out of your motors. Lumenier say ‘Lumenier has collaborated with FPV pilot SKITZO, one of the most influential and talented FPV freestyle pilots today, to bring you the perfect FPV freestyle motor. This Lumenier RB2204-13 2500Kv motor has been engineered from the ground up, and it is the perfect blend of elegant design and high end performance. By using high quality steel bearings and CNC precision machined parts, each Lumenier motor provides silky smooth, reliable power. The Kv and size of the motor has been carefully selected to be optimized for 5″ props on a 4s battery. This combination gives you an excellent burst of power to quickly elevate your aircraft above and around objects.’
Though these motors do seem impressive and, like clothes, the designer name associated with them should give a boost in sales. We do wonder here at Drone Insider whether these are priced competitively enough to compete with the new and cheaper players in the market. Especially as most of these high end motors are made in the same factories as EMAX, RCTimer and RCX, and the gains are merely marginal.
