The only thing to be aware of, is that the turnigy motors break easily, and they are pretty much unbalanced, giving you alot of vibrations.
Thanks Robin (and others) for the confirmation. Just want to make sure I keep all the smoke where it belongs.
I've been using the Turnigy 2217/20 for well over a year now and only had one go bad out of 12 motors in regular use (between my octo and quad).
Granted...I've not used them with 4s batteries...but I'm about to go try that now.

Speaking of batteries...I have been using the Rhino 4900mah 3s batteries. The 4s version is $50 on HobbyKing. Does anyone have any other suggestions on batteries...or are those probably the best deal out there?

Thanks,
Brent
