Nice little trick just to raise prices of exsisting motors

I've been patiently waiting for months to buy a couple more EXEED monster power 60 motors but you've never restocked ANY of those motors. Now I understand why, you've simply painted those exact MONSTER POWER motors green and slapped on a new label with a cute new name BIG FOOT just so you could raise the prices of that entire line of motors, especially the 46 and 60 size ones that I have been waiting so long for! Well, insultng the intelligence of your customers with cute little tricks like this will only drive good customers like myself to other distibutors who don't play such games.
Dissapointed customer.....

Have you even looked at the motors? They're not the same at all. The can & bell shape are different, the mounting apparatus is different, the shaft size is different, and the ratings are DEFINITELY different. I mean if you look at the 110's for instance, the old Monster Motors were only rated to 9 lipo cells maximum, and the new Tacon's are rated to a whopping 14 cells.

While the overall wattage limit is the same, that means you can drop in a lot more cells and draw fewer amps, which is a lot easier on your batteries.

Which means they must be using better magnets, glues, and wire.

I've now seen the 90 & 110 flying in big electrics and they perform better than the Monsters.

Personally I love the monster line, but for only a slightly bigger price tag getting these seems like a no-brainer.

I think you're getting your undies all bunched up over nothing, these motors are still cheaper than anything you can find on the market for the size and features.

I'm stocking up on these, because they'll sell out too.
