Motors couldnt bare the high temps and batteries were dead after 20 cycles (they chose low capacity batteries for low weight).
I i cannot give 150 euro for a neu motor, but i understand that a 15 dollar motor will not bare the pain. The best choice stands in between.
yes, i have done this myself but after a few flights, the windings of the turnigy turns dark and does not last, so i do not recommend it,,,but if you want to experience it, sure you can get a high kv turnigy 100 to 150gram ones on a 4 s, even a 5s with a lower kv and fly 5 times before the battery puffs, teh esc blows or motor burns
