There are some guys peddling these w/o the TGY brand on eBay. They have like 5 different eBay Store names (to avoid eBay fees) but all are shipping from the same address in Florida. If you find them on Bid, the prices are 1/3 HobbyKing's prices and the shipping is free. Their "Buy Now" prices are much higher though. Got to hunt around for the "Bid" offerings. They ship in usually 2 days Priority Mail in US. Some of those motors on eBay are listed as EMP - there is no EMP motor company in China. So far I've bought 4 motors off them 3 of them they didn't even bother putting a EMP label on them, just a model number / kv just like wholesale XYH motors have that online guys like Heads Up RC sells.
These motors were made by XYH in Shenzheng China and they also made the old great HobbyKing SK series motors (silver chrome and black), the back quad and tri-arm casting that is machined like an impeller, is a XYH trademark of their brand. Great motors, Japanese HD bearings.
I got an unbranded SK 4240 750kv on bid for only $4.81 w/ free Priority Mail shipping! They lost money on that bid!
