Has anyone tried the "Hacker-Compatiable" motors?

Hi Guys,

I was just wondering if any of you have tried these motors and if so, how do you like them?

http://raidentech.com/b2outrubrmo4.html

They seem like a good bargain. I have purchased their 400XT Outrunner Brushless Motor 980 RPM and though I haven't flown it yet, it matched the RPMs of my E-flite Park 400 outrunner to a tee. 7200RPM with a TP3200 3S Li-po and PNX25 ESC, both motors spinning an APC 10x3.8E prop.

Thanks, Terry

I have one of the A20-34S motors. Very nice motor. These prices are amazing. I'm picking up a few of the others now.

How do they compare to the Hacker equivalent?

Thanks, Terry

Wow, I wish they would offer some of the A30 sizes too!

Lots of time spent taking pictures and talking about how nice the motors are, but they can't take 5 minutes to actually measure and post the numbers? If they really were better than a Hacker, or even kind of close for $32, you would think they'd be screaming the numbers from a mountain top.

We've gotta start holding those that sell motors to some level of accountability. If they can't do 5 minutes of work so that a crowd of buyers can purchase with confidence, then I'm not sure they deserve the money. Performance doesn't have to be great, but it needs to be known before you purchase.

Just by comparing photos of these and the Hacker equiv, I would say the performance would have to be at least in the same ball park. I guess we'll have to wait until someone buys one and tests it or donates one to a Dr. Kiwi type for real results. Maybe I'll bite and order the 20L.

Forget $33.00. I ordered one for $25 (which I haven't received yet), and they just dropped the price to $19, so I ordered another.

Eagleburger,

I appreciate you being one of the members of the Toni Hand watchdogs, and because of your vigilance, I will not deal with the aforementioned stores.
Now, how do you know Toni is affiliated with united hobbies?
Isn't changing their domain names getting expensive for them?
Keep up the good work.

I know all of the talk about Anthony Hand going all the way back to the Asia EXS days. The fact of the matter is that I've placed 4 or 5 orders with him, under the various eBay store names and the HobbyKong (now United Hobbies) web sites, and I've gotten my merchandise every time. As a matter of fact, just 15 minutes ago I went to the mailbox, and there was my "Hacker-style" outrunner, arrived quicker than I was expecting. It looks and feels like a nice motor, not a piece of junk. We'll see. All of these motors out of China are becoming commodity items anyway. You can order the same exact item from any one of several dealers, each at different, sometimes dramatically different, prices. Anthony has always sold them at the lowest prices I've found. Some of you may have had experiences very different from mine, but I feel compelled to share mine with you.

Chris,

I would appreciate any test results you can provide on these motors. Not asking for a lot of effort just your impression of it after you get it up and going. Looks like a killer deal even if it falls somewhat short of Hacker #s.

Chris if you are going to fire this up on the bench could you please measure and report:

1) No load current
2) Voltage, Current and RPM with your target prop
3) Voltage, Current and RPM with a 1 or 2" smaller diameter prop?

Thanks

I'll try to fire it up tonight or tomorrow, and let you know what I come up with.
