The 2215-18 that I have standardised on for these sorts of planes is only 3 or 4 grams heavier than a Hyperion 2213-20 ready for use (with x mount and screws). The Scorpion can handle more input power and generates more thrust if it is wanted, though the setup I use here is a balance betwen power and efficiency, more weighted towards power. The Hyperion could just squeeze out similar numbers if I didn't use full throttle too much, but that would be pushing the motor very hard. The Scorpion is cheaper and has extra headroom.
Scorpion customer service is definately good. Which Scorpions have you tried?
