    id like to upgrade current P2 motors. question are these a direct plug in for oem?

    is their actually a benefit to these motors over stock?
    lastly the description says nothing about what esc these work with? I'm assuming stock?

    :mrgreen:

    You can change out the stock motors for the T-motor's just by soldering. If you dont know how to solder, most hobby shops will do it for about $6 a motor. The stock ESC's work with it. They are said to give better flight times and overall lifting ability although I have never tried them. Heres a test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2s3ed-BREw

    One of the pictures in this link:
    http://www.amazon.com/T-MOTOR-MN2214-Ve ... dji+tmotor
    states the "recommended ESC: T10A".

    The same pic recommends the 8045 prop.

    Many of the questions and answers, as well as the reviews are a year old.
    When did the Version 3 hit the market, anyone know?

    I'm running these motors. Seem smooth.
    I can't compare them to stock motors as I installed them before my first flight.
    I bought the matching T-Motor CF 9*3 props but have not installed them yet.
    Make sure you get the prop nuts if you get their props.
    No complaints as of yet, seem to be a good motor.

    you seem like a new member here, welcome, your comment towards another member seems a bit harsh.. auen1 posted his experience with these motors, since i created this thread comments like his is what i was looking for. I already was aware that the t motors are better than stock. IF you think they are worse than stock that is your opinion, however i would point to their specs and youtube to help educate you about their usefulness. Lastly since you are a new member here you may want to review the forum conduct and rules for posting. Our site admin frequents a lot of posts and the last thing a new member needs is a strike against him for being "harsh"..

    IF you care to share your educated opinions, or if you have actually installed these motors and noticed less flight time please share.

    Re: ANTI gravity motors thoughts? id like more power captain

    I have been researching motors a lot lat-lee. I suffered a bad crash this past weekend and have to change out my shell, and 1ESC. Sorry if Harsh. Cranke and old.

    My motors all feel a little gritty when I spin them by hand. I have not fond a good upgrade motor.
    The ones with honest reviews all say you loose performance some ware.

    Why go thru a motor change, and spend the money, If upgrade is minimal ?? I ask this because I am already having to pull every thing out of the shell .. Now would be good time for me to change motors. But a ESC change is required with some motors.
    I have ordered the upgrade ceramic bearings for my motors. Will see if this helps the gritty feel .
    Droping 200 bucks on motors is not looking so good.

    Let us know how this motor upgrade goes for you ? A lot of reviews are bias. Are you going to change out ESC to??
    I hope not stomping on your thread.

    Thanks

    Re: ANTI gravity motors thoughts? id like more power captain

    i agree with everything you said, I'm looking for the best bang for your buck "upgrade" to oem motors... i think i found what i like, i have watched a youtube video and also did some research via manufacturer spec sheet and i have found some inexpensive options...

    reviewing vs t motors at 7amps, thrust is more than the antigravity by almost 100g :shock: plus at 64$ its easy on the wallet... watch the install by "grandpa jake" on youtube on his p1 phantom with these imotor upgrades.. they seemed really good.

    Well after trying to put bearings in, I have to say go with new motors. The bearing up grade did not go well. I am replacing the motor I tried to upgrade. And will put in upgrade motors when I know the ones I want. :oops:
