    Hey guys! I got the tmotors for my phantom2 , and figured that many guys out there would like to know if they worth it.. This is my video review!

    Conclusion:
    Tmotors gained 1 minute of extra flight time and feel more responsive..Does it worth it for the buck? Well, for phantom 1 owners it sure does! For phantom 2 vision/phantom 2 w/zenmuse owners with 20+ minutes flight time i guess not, since they can get a new battery with that kind of money. In my case, the FPV setup etc has limited my *usable* flight time to 15 minutes, and with the new 3axis gimbal it will propably go to 13-14 minutes, i think it worth it! This is because i prefer *longer* flights, than multiple shorter flights. But this is just a personal view on this. I love flying my phantom in remote locations, far away from home point, so having an extra minute to fly back or just enjoy the view is mandatory for me.

    I have also installed the same motors and Zero Gravity Carbon props. I must say they are very nice motors. Are they worth the 189.00 for the motors and 80.00 for the props. I will have to say probabilty not. That's hard to say after investing that much. They may hold up longer in the long run and they may be a little smoother but not a dramatic improvement. Would I purchase again yea most likely because I can't leave anything stock. Just my 2 cent's. Also great review above !!

    Thanks for commenting,
    i havent got the tiger props, they are too expensive for my taste.. I would love to make a review though, to see differences in flight performance or flight time. I am just super sceptical whether they worth it, you can get many, many sets of CF props with that kind of money! Anyway!
