Question : Are brushless motors always much noisier than brushed motors, or is this only the case with the standard Bixler motor? Thank you,Gerhard 807gt.
No. There is very little, if any, difference between the two types of motors. The big difference comes into play when comparing a pusher vs tractor configuration. Then, the pusher configuration is almost always louder.
