Test Results



Best on Test

Flyfish Flash 2207 2005KV

The best all around performer of the Flyfish Flash Series. A good budget motor that is well built. Performance is solid for the price but doesn't quite reach the top tier of performance.

RCinPower Smoox 2306 Plus 1350KV/1880KV/2280KV/2580KV

RCinPower make excellent quality motors and regularly test amongst the best available. This Smoox 2306 Plus has a unibell design, use strong N52 magnets and hold a very tight air gap.

EMAX ECO II 2207 Motor

These motors have strong N52 magnets and solid build quality at an attractive price point. While you can find motors for less money they are rarely worth buying.

iFlight XING2 2207 Motor - 1855KV/2755KV

Unibell design, titanium shaft, and a protective o-ring to keep the bearings smoother for longer. A quality motor if you're focussed on durability rather than outright performance.

AOS Supernova 2207

More torque, more power, and better efficiency. The Supernova is the first 5" Motor optimised using over 20,000 electromagnetic finite element simulations built on data from real world testing of 50+ 5" motors. This is the new performance benchmark for 5" FPV and is a step ahead of anything that has come before. Designed by AOS and built by RCinPower.

RCinPower Wasp Major 22.6-6.5 1860KV

One of the very best performing 5" Motors available right now in my testing. With strong performance in every category RCinPower have delivered an exceptional motor. Perfect for a high performance 5" freestyle or racing build. 1860KV is a more moderate KV option which will be kinder on your battery.

RCINPOWER GTS V2 2207 Plus Motor - 1860KV/2500KV/2750KV

RCinPower make excellent quality motors. These have a unibell design, use strong N52 magnets and hold a tight air gap.

T-Motor PACER V3 P2207 Powerful Freestyle Motor -1750KV/ 1950KV/ 2080KV/ 2550KV

A more premium offering from T-Motor these motors are available in a wide range of KV to match your preferred prop. I'd take 1750KV for a typical 5x4.3x3 on 6S.

T-motor Velox V3 2207

A great value performer from T-motor. If this motor is available at a mid-range price point (under $20 in the USA) then it's exceptional value for money. It's not quite able to challenge the very best from RCinPower but it gets close at a lower price.

RCinPower Wasp Major 22.6-6.5 2020KV

One of the very best performing 5" Motors available right now in my testing. With strong performance in every category RCinPower have delivered an exceptional motor. Perfect for a high performance 5" freestyle or racing build. 2020 KV provides the maximum possible performance but will draw more current from your battery.

T-Motor VELOX VELOCE V2207.5 V2 Motor - 1750KV/1950KV/2550KV (Royal Blue)

N52 magnets, titanium shaft and manufactured by T-Motor. If that wasn't enough these are also seriously good looking motors.

iFlight XING-E Pro 2207

A unibell design, N52 magnets and an o-ring to cushion the bearing in a crash.This is premium motor technology at an affordable cost.
