Motors suitable for Quad work,
Of the hundreds (if not thousands) of motor choices available out there, very few have proven to be suitable for Quads. This is mainly due to the loading capacity required for reliable quad flying. You would not want to see one of your motors suddenly stop mid flight or simply cook itself while you watch. Yes, there are lots of choices...and we certainly do not advocate that ours is the only choice. But to keep things simple, we have narrowed the selection down to a few that we like. Both are suitable for 4,6,8 motor configurations and boast good current/thrust figures.
|TowerPro 2409 Outrunner||
A great little motor with good current/power characteristics.

You can reverse the shaft on these to suit your application.
This is probably the best motor for a Quad application that you are likey to find.
The power/weight/current combination is just about perfect.
|The DT750 is a tough & reliable performer. Mounting can be a challenge but it all depends on the kind of airframe you are using.|
A bit more on brushless motors
Just to clarify brushless electric motor ratings, specifically the Kv rating: The term Kv when referring to brushless motors does not = kilovolts (1 kV = 1000 volts). The Kv rating of a brushless motor refers to how many RPM it will yield per volt. For instance - a 1000 Kv motor with a voltage range of 10 - 25 volts would provide about 10,000 RPM @ 10 volts up to around 25,000 RPM @ 25 volts.
