Top 5 Best Miniquad Motors September 2017

HyperLite 2307 2522kV

With such a large stator, you might have thought the Hyperlite 2307 would be an extremely heavy motor. But you would be wrong. At 30.4g it is extremely light compared to other motors of its size, they kept the weight down by using a naked bottom and titanium shaft. They also use a 16x16mm mounting bracket on the base, this is supposed to help make frame design easier and it certainly makes more sense than the 19x16mm we are used to. All in all the Hyperlite series of motors continue to push the boundaries of the hobby and the 2307 is the best motor out there, if your batteries can handle the pounding!

MB Primo 2207 2450kV

Multicopter Builders have been in the miniquad scene for a while now, and back in early 2015 we built Epic 280 from them. Now they have started commissioning their own motors from brotherhobby and they have produced this 2207 beast. They weigh a respectable 30g, and produce some of the highest thrust numbers we have seen yet. On a kingkong 6×4 they produce over 1731g, at the cost of 40A at full throttle. We expect the higher 2650kV variant to hit over 1800g, however this will of course come in at again a higher amp draw. They are also an excellent choice for 5S or even 6S setups, as the taller stator will help with heat dissipation.

RCX RS2206 V3

RCX are known for making every stator size in existence as well as for cheap and cheerful motors. The RS 2206 V3 are a notable exception to this rule; as they are some of the cheapest yet powerful 2206s around. At only $11 they are perfect for the flier on the budget, and the N52SH magnets and Japanese EZO bearing prove they are excellent bang for the buck. In our experience MyRcMart have been one of the quickiest Chinese retailers when it comes to shipping. Unfortunately there is one big drawback to these motors, the fact they still use a C clip to secure the shaft. But for $11 you can’t go wrong.

TMotor F40 III

TMotor have been in the quad market for years now and have consistently been putting out some of the best motors out there. The F40 V3 are an update to their already successful F40 lineup, the V3 increases the Stator size to 2306, bringing it on par with the popular Emax RS2306. AT 34.5g it’s the heaviest motor on our lineup and it still uses a C-clip to secure the bell, instead of a screw which we much prefer. Despite this the 2306 stator kicks out decent thrust, at efficiency that’s a lot better than most of the motors on this list. Its worth noting the tested kV is 2300, rather than the 2400 its advertised at.

Hypetrain Freestyle 2306 2450kV

RotorRiot are one of the biggest names in the hobby due to their web series, despite the recent drama over Steele leaving. They have charged ahead and released their first motor yet. Despite being called the hypetrain motor, it is far from hype. At 30.1g it’s very respectable in terms of weight, and kicks out solid numbers with good efficiency, which is exactly what you want for freestyle. Like the Hyperlite 2307, it uses the new 16x16mm mounting pattern. They have decided to use a steel screw to secure the bell in place, instead of the usual C-Clip. This is great as it means you easily clean the motor without having to worry about taking the c-clip off. Another nifty feature is the naked bottom, which means you can easily clean dirt out and it also saves weight.
