They have great motors and i think you can even run the 9'' prop on 3s! I think SDone had the motrofly on it in his video.
So was there a problem with the bearings on the crack motor? Mine started making what I think are bearing rattling noises, so I took it off and put a different one on. I figured I cooked it with my non-stop flying on 3S (8x4.3 prop). I was going to try putting some bearing oil to see if the noise goes away, but have been happy with the replacement motor
. It's not as energetic as the crack motor, being 100kv less, but it runs a lot cooler, and allows me to run 3S non-stop until I crash and have to fix something (been going through props like bubble gum lately).
