    Hi

    Is there any difference between the red flame wheel motor and the silver phantom ones? they should both be 2212 920KV motors, but as I am new to this I do not know if there are other factors to consider. I need to replace one motor and I have a couple of the silver ones that I wonder if I could use.

    You are correct, they both are 2212 920KV. The red motors are older and the silver motors have updated bearings as far as I know. I would not mix and match, but you could give it a try, I bet they will work fine. I just sold a bunch of the red motors

    I know nothing on this topic except a rumor that the motors are the same, but supposedly the red ones have better quality control. I'd wager they're the same.

    I believe the bearing are improved in the Red Motors.

    My E300s are that size. I thought they were different than the Phantom motors.
