    Motor choice...

    Looking for some help with motor selection...

    Im transforming an ADS400Q-X into a more AP friendly frame (no flaming! =) )...

    Im looking for a lower kv motor to run larger props (10")...

    My 2 choices seem to be:

    SunnySky V3808 700kv with 10x5.5 props

    or

    SunnySky V2216 800kv with 10x47 props

    Im running Pixhawk FC, DTFUHF, some HK landing gears w/ gimbal rails, quanum 2D gimbal, and 4s 4500mAh pack, 30amp simonK escs..

    Any help would be appreciated...

    Coming from same electronic setup but short arms and SunnySky x2216 1100kv 8x4 props...

    I'd go with the 700kv motors as i believe you will gain more efficiency from that setup.

    I have the same frame sitting on my shelf. I've been trying to figure out what motors to use with the original arms. How did you like your 1100kv motors? I cant decide between those or the 800kv. Sorry to thread highjack.

    I ran 1100kv motors on my ads and it was awesome. I kind of wished I had gone with 1200kv for little more agility but the 1100kv on 4s with 8" props were great and super smooth
