Some important differences:

Het 2W-25 2720kv is an inrunner - inrunners generally draw less current than outrunners at the same RPM, generate less torque and is more efficient at higher RPM's.

Het 2W-25 2720kv is rated at 1100W with a 6S battery - has no problem when derated at 4S. The HK motor is iffy, in my opinion,

Throw the setup on a wattmeter and see what it pulls from the battery ...
