Wanted to get opinions on the FlipSky/ Maytech 65161 versus the alien 80100. Both seem to be viable options for moderate budget builds (much cheaper than the FR motors). I currently have both of these motors. I have the 80100 just about ready to test and just got the FS motor in yesterday so it will be a couple of weeks until ill be able to test it. I am using a Flier 400 esc and do not have any data logging capability so when i do get around to trying both i will only have qualitative data to share and hopefully some battery runtime info. I will be sure to update this post with my findings.
In the meantime I wanted to know if anyone has done a similar comparison yet. Really interested in efficiency data as I think ill be more interested in longer ride times and range than pure speed. I know this data depends also on foil type and other factors but has anyone tested these two motors side by side on the same setup? If so can you share what props you found to work best for each?
