Nothing sums up what I think of your quad better than an Aussie using colorful language as only an Aussie sailor could. Nsfw language in this video but it's hilarious. Quality is bad in the video but it's worth watching the whole thing just for the language lol. I've sailed with Aussies before and can confirm this is accurate sailing language there

Awesome data! Clearly the most unbiased and comprehensive tests with these motors.

Was thinking these would be the perfect fool-resistant connection between the 2204 and ESCs

Deans 3 pin connectors http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXKX41&P=7

Just heatshrink over them and cut it when you need to get them apart...

So any of you guys with credit card in hand may want to throw some on your order

Just watched this video again. Love the slow-motion crash replays and sounds!

Query, Soma: Do you think the fact that the FC6045 props are plastic, as opposed to the CF mix HQProps, is a problem or limitation?

I fly my small quads with bright props (orange or green) up front, and black props in the back. But it looks to me like your orange-in-front, green-out-back setup provides even better visibility and orientation for fast acro flying. Any comments on prop color and visibility you would like to share?

Also, I think I remember you mentioning that HQProp might produce their props in colors. That would obviously be great for small fast quads, like some FnBL's and the Warpquad, which are are a visibility challenge. Any news on HQProp colors?

Do the afros work nicely with this sunnysky x2204 2300kv?
Here is the link http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Firmware_.html
the one review says that the ESC weighed 12grams

Those are not equally spaced you would need to re-solder the wires to change directions. But they should work.

For me that's exactly the point, I always colorcode my conns so I don't need to re-check motor direction every time.

These are the types of results I expect to see from motor manufacturers. Very clear and conclusive. Thanks for doing this, Soma. I'm sold on the SunnySky 2204.

We need a Soma & Warthox undisputed multirotor pilot champion of the world competition! These 2 guys sure have some flying skills !

Awesome work on those tests, most comprehensive for the 5 - 7" size props (or any other props for that matter)
Thanks for carrying out the tests and sharing with us. Now we can truly chose the best combo for our setups.
Props to you!

Right!
Sunnysky should give Soma free motors for life.... errr well at least one set!
Some manufacturers don't give you all this info because they wouldn't compare favorably with others and also due to the 100's of different setups it's be hard to do. But they should at least give some basic info. Like "expected" thrust from 3S 2300KV motor or something similar... we can only wish.
