I have received DYS 2830 1300kv motor from Banggood recently. I want to share my thoughts and test data of this motor.

Motor quality is very good. Feels solid and well-made. I have tested it with 3S and 4S with 8040, 8040E and 9060E props. Got good results with 3S battery, but my tested propellers were too big for 4S battery - motor gets too hot. So I quess that 7 inch sized propellers should be OK with 4S battery.

Note: If you decide to cut the shaft, then I advice to put motor into some plastic bag while cutting. This will prevent metal grinding particles from getting inside the motor (thanks to Mike Dubovsky for this tip!).

Tested props:
* GWS style 8040 prop
* APC style Gemfan 8040 (8x4)high efficiency propeller (you can find this propeller here: https://goo.gl/PeBem1)
* APC style Gemfan 9060 (9x6E) high efficiency propeller (you can find this propeller here: https://goo.gl/eho4v8)

APC style 8040 sized propeller is too big for 4S - motor gets too hot while testing. I suggest to use smaller than 8040 sized propeller for 4S battery.

DYS D2830 motor thrust test (1 min 40 sec)


Thrust test result sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...96&single=true

Unfortunately I dont have RPM meter (yet), so no RPM data.

Good:
+ Well-made motor
+ 3.5mm bullet connectors presoldered
+ Silicone wires (wires inside tubes)
+ Good thrust results
+ Best price

Bad:
- Shaft is too long
- No label with size and kv on the motor

Bottom line:
Besides some minor issues, this is very good motor for medium sized planes. Provides more than 1Kg of thrust with Gemfan 9x6E high efficiency propeller (you can find this propeller here: https://goo.gl/eho4v8 ). Look at this thrust test at 4:55 of this video.

When I start my X8W toy, not all 4 motors are steadying up together.

I did the reset, and restart (shut off controller and on again) but it seems that two and/or three of the motors start running faster then the one or two which are not always on as it is when the toy is OK.

Sometimes, with same battery and conditions, all 4 do run as a set….

As a yet new user, I wonder why this is so.

I get nostalgiac about a lot of old things to do with model airplane flying.

In a craigslist haul a year ago , I got a Sig Twister in perfect condition with an older Fox 35 Stunt engine. I got the engine running on modern 10% fuel just to see if it ran, and it did. I kept the run short and now have the castory type of olde time fuel it likes - 29% castor, 10% nitro.

Unfortunately, the plane got bonked sometime in the not too distant past - the perils of sharing a shop with a brother and a dad. No matter how out of the way I hang it, it will be jostled. Over the weekend I found the needle had been bent 90 degrees - no hope of straightening, the soft brass needle broke right off.

I hate to sideline a plane or engine - if an engine goes into a drawer it will never see the light of day again - horrors.

So, in the name of nostalgia and keeping old things functional, I am on a quest to get a needle or a complete, compatible NVA to get the engine running again, and the plane in the air.

This is the Unboxing and Overview for the Hubsan H501S X4 FPV Drone Advanced Version with an 1080p HD Camera. I unbox it, go over the quadcopter, its radio, and even do a quick little indoor maiden test flight. I also compare it to my Hubsan H502S X4 Desire GPS FPV Drone and Hubsan X4 Pro H109S GPS FPV Drone.

Unboxing and Overview - Hubsan H501S X4 FPV Drone Quadcoopter Advanced Version with 1080p HD Camera (10 min 51 sec)

Review Notes for the Hubsan H501S Advanced Edition:

Pros:
- Easy to set-up and fly
- Smooth fun flight characteristics
- GPS mode
- Follow Me function
- 1080p HD Camera

Cons:
- Eats radio batteries very quickly
- On board video could be a little better quality but it is still light years ahead of the H502S X4 Desire

I attended the Keystone Clippers R/C Swap Meet today in North Huntington, PA. I was fortunate to win the door prize, a Parkzone Sport Cub and a Spektrum DXe transmitter!

Thank you to the Keystone Clippers R/C Model Airplane Club for a fine event. Looking forward to next year!

Took the H23 flying car for an outdoor flight. It performed pretty well. It has three nice rates and it handled the wind well.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
