Instead of taking the ribs away from the SK motor you can also take away around .5mm from the inside of the can holder with a 5usd whole drill...I think I have the bit posted upthread.
The SK3 560kv motor HK sells can have the shaft changed with a 8mm steel shaft from MC-Master Car.... I bought around 4 motors worth of 8mm shaft....20usd just to make sure
Then you reinforce the mount and PU the blades..
Took me a couple of hours (I changed the shaft on an scorpion motor though) and well worth it.
The sound you see in all my 120mm vids is the fan with a slight unbalance at low to mid RPM so they can run quieter than what you hear in the vid...
75usd - SK3 motor
75usd - fan
90usd - 14s 120 esc
18lbs 12oz of thrust on 14s at 120 amp 250-ish usd for everything and some elbow grease = nice
