Geared inrunner motors are more effecient that BL outrunner motor but most stronly prefer the lower maintaince of outrunners. gear boxs can be a PITA.

brushed motor suck compared to brushless motors. Those who fly a brushed motor powered aircraft for hundreds of flights on a single motor do so at very low power levels and those who fly them for years fly very little.

I have many brushed motors that are over twenty years old that are same as new and in fact some are brand new.

A brushless setup even an outrunner one is atleast twice as effecient,weight half as much and will last hundreds if not thousands of flights and I am refering to hard aerobatic and 3D style flying not just floating around and doing lazy circles in the sky.

I flew brushed Astro Flite Colbalt motors for years. They were the best available and even geared they were so far behind even a cheap HK ineffeciient outrunner brushless that it is not funny.
