Hobby King Alternatives to HET motors?

Guys,

I'm really struggling to source HET 2w-20 and 2w-25 motors in the UK and import prices are very high so I'm wondering whether there's a Hobby King / TURNIGY alternative out there? Looking at the specs there are a few motors that may be in the running but their rated power and voltage are somewhat lower than the HET equivalent (for size and kv rating). Perhaps they are being a little conservative?

I'm looking to run couple of FunJet Ultras on 4s (I normally use a 2w-20 with 4.75 x 4.75 prop or would like to try a slightly larger prop on a 2w-25 equivalent) and 6s with a 4.7x4.7 prop.

Can you advise?

its hard to compare HK motors to HET IMO, is it expensive to bring a motor in to the UK? it might be worth paying the extra as you will have a motor that will last you years

Very true. Problem solved now: my usual UK supplier now has stock in of the entire HET range and at great new prices! 15% extra on everything ggrrrrr..... Still cheaper than importing, but only just.
