Paul, I honestly have no idea. There are no markings on the factory motors or esc to give me any info at all. I can tell you that the motors are 17mm in diameter and the esc's are probably 15 to 18 amps judging from their size.

After an inititial test hop today I didn't notice any major improvement in power or performance over the brushed motors but I would not jump to conclusions yet. I need more time with it.
Adding two ESC's to the airframe does add some weight but I don't know how detrimental it is to performance.

I did not fly long enough to see if my flight times were better or worse than before and with the gusting, swirling winds today I was not flying it so much as I was avoiding crashing it.

I still believe the Sport version handles better than the Military version though
BTW, The brushless motors get awful hot too.

Also Hobby people has a new lipo that is 1200mah and looks to be about the same size as the stock 850mah. I'll do more research on that on Monday.
