Ya I am still around!

If weight is important, the Axi is the lightest motor in your list. It is also a proven performer in Shockie style planes.
My non-Lexan Little Screamer with a mount weighs exactly the same as an AXI.
The AXI is a lot quieter than the aptly named Screamer.
AFAIK, the Hyperion is a 12 slot LRK motor like the AXI.
Slow with big thrust is not always the best.
With a big prop it is almost impossible to stop the plane from torque rolling in a hover. With a smaller prop and the right plane you can do an anti-torque roll.
My first Shocky had a 2208 (39 gram) motor swinging a 10x4.7 on 2S. Lots of thrust, but a hover was always a torque roll.
When they became available the 2204, although down a bit in thrust, was a much better motor choice. Switching to 3S gets back all the thrust.
Also larger props are heavier. This is important when you are trying to shave a few grams here and there.
If you want to see how a small prop high rpm setup can work check out the Knuffel videos here .
The Knuffel is intended for a sub-20 gram motor swinging a 7" prop.
What plane are you going to use this motor in?
What plane are you going to use this motor in? Quote: Pat M.
Agreed! Trying to decide which motor is best without knowing its intended use is like asking which apple makes a better pie, It all depends on the tree!
But, there's allways a selection of prop weights across a given size range
12 vs 9 slot is something a lot of people stuggle over on which to use. I personally chose to build 9 slot motors to save weight, but the microdans are very nice and can swing very large props with ease.
Indoors you are right you want less pitch speed, but then again you also want to keep your indoor planes light...
I am sure I just confused you even more, but really there is no cut and dry answer.

It is good ? no ?
This is rather outdated but might be of some use.
MicroDAN 2505/10 and the newer Littlescreamers are not in here, nor are the latest CustomCDR Billet motors.
Edit: Here is a link to MicroDAN 2505/10 performance and that of other small motors with 8x4 and 9x5 GWS HD props.
Here's a link to Custom CDR Single data:
