I am not bashing anything, I was just confused when I installed the prop and it did not turn the prop like I expected it would. I wanted the higher kv because I fugured that I could operate this at a higher speed than the cheaper motors and not burn it up. Thats why I ordered a -12 the invoice and box says -12 and that simply what I expected to see. It was not until I checked the KV that it was anything other than what I ordered.

This happened early on when outrunners started showing up, Lots of people were comparing them to geared inrunners just based on the fact they pulled more amps on the same prop, what happened when they checked RPM was that the outrunners were pulling more amps and giving less RPM, so producing less usable power while using more power.

In other words, get a -12, and dont bash the -14 for not being a -12
