Ohh. And where are the $20 DJI replacement arms for S800?.. If RCTimer can sell those bare-bone plastic arms for that price and still make money, it should tell you a lot about why DJI selected that solution in the first place instead of going with a proper CF solution. S800 is the only "pro" solution out there that doesn't use CF. And it's also the one with most vibration problems. I wonder if there is a connection..
Wonder what connection? ... a clone remains a clone is the connection. If you like clone, I have no problem. You might find iPhone clone cheaper when you can't afford the original, again I have no issue with that. If you have no sense of intellectual property right, there is not my problem, but don't expect me to agree.

The 4215 might make a good Gimbal Motor...Rewound.......Don't see where either 4215 Motor mentions the S800. They are not even rated for 15" props.

Gerry,

Think you missed something in translation, as the 4114 IS the motor that comes standard with the S800 clone and has more lift. Think the RCT800 is a different bird altogether. Think he is saying that the 4114 would NOT be a good match for the smaller RCT800......

Are you trying to be some type of Dealer for them....?

I am going to try something completely different. I am looking for a fun to fly hex. So I just bought een s800 with rctimer s800 carbon wrapped arms, upgraded wiring and simonk escs. But with no motors. I have a lot of 4s lipos so i going to try a little experiment. I am going to put ipower 2814 750kv motors on the s800 with 12x5 graupner props. And then fly it on 4s. All i have is a small gopro gimball on it for fpv. Flight times with 2 x 5000mah4s should be around 12mins.
