    Ok... currently I am running a Quantum 4125-560 motor in my goblin 570. I upgraded it from a scorpion 4025-1100 6s motor. And while it has more power, I have never been hugely impressed by it... could be because its now a bit heavier, even tho I upped the head speed by 100-200 rpm when I put in the quantum, I just remember not being wowed by it....

    anyway, always looking at other alternatives... but to be honest I'll see what difference the blackline blades make, as they should be a bit stiffer..

    the two motors I am looking at are

    KDE 550XF 565 G3 - http://www.kdedirect.com/KDE550XF565G3.html
    you need to watch the walk through of the G3 line... -


    Xnova 4025-560 - http://www.xnovamotors.com/xnova-4025-560kv/

    Not saying I am going to go out and buy one... but its on my mind.... other than those two what else would be a contender? not really interested in the pyro.. but I could be convinced...

    Thoughts?

      Well....@manyc I just spent 18 minutes watching that (dam you lol!) and yes I am impressed with KDE. I know this much - many of the KDE motors I have seen perform really well, so good infact that I know of some helicopters that actually exploded (yes - "EXPLODED") and others strip main gears. It seems that MR KDE focuses on extreme type motors and he has some interesting design concepts (multi strand vs single) and high quality (the motor core lamination's) . I cant see any reason why you should not buy it!

      Dear @Manyc . You have my blessing to go forth and purchase this item. Please be aware that it is a sin NOT to purchase that helicopter gear you lust after. You hardly crash anyway so that is justification enough!..

      Now I know you're looking at the KDE, and I'm sure they are a good motor, but just for information I believe you should know that Zen will have the full range of Xnova's in my warehouse delivered this Friday.... Hell, I might even do another heligods 10% off vouchers coz I'm so excited about it.
      So there !! :D

      Yes we have ordered the xnova 4025-560 goblin version in the first batch ;)
      Power increase should be noticeable compared to the quantum. But ofcourse I am only guessing from specs as I haven't flown one yet.
      From the specs it is an impressive piece of kit, with more power than any equivalent motor in other brands, except perhaps the pyro - but even with the pyro it is comparable. Not cheap though, but then again, quality costs ;)

      wow, after looking at the specs I think i might have just sold one to myself...:p


      And yes - I did notice the order placed at 5:17 am - haha.

      KDE motors are the most powerful and efficient hands down !

      At last another view point... the specs on paper show that the kde has more power... but that's only on paper... xnova state they are more efficient... I'm impressed with the quad bearings and dynamic can balancing... but people are swearing by the xnova...

      Hmmmm....

      No experience with the Xnova yet but the KDE is an absolute beast and very rarely gets hot. The 500 XF in the gob 500 doesn't bog or get hot.

      So let it be written, so let it be done!! :D

      I was expecting the stock today, but I'm guessing DHL had other ideas.... :(
      They will be in early next week for certain. Will let you know when they arrive. Now you can be just as excited about the arrival of the new stuff as me ;)
