They seems to have an efficiency sweet spot around 1.5kg, so 9kg for hexa AUW.

If your intended flight weight is far from this figure, look for smaller or bigger motors.

Alternative: DYS BE5208 330kv, good quality, powerful, can use 18" props, long wires..

Just posted thrust test video:

I can't read the values on Wattmeter in your video, can you tell us what is the wattage for 1.5kg mark ?

Bigger props is not a plus always, if the efficiency would be the same my preference is for smaller props, for greater disk loading => more stable in the wind.

Sorry about the lighting, i'm to lazy to switch the light on..
Yup, that's why i bought 17" props. Just in case more thrust needed I can use 18" props.
Here's thrust data:

More info:
- I use cheap carbon fiber props, i think should be more efficient with good quality props.
- I live in Bandung, 800m above sea level.

DYS only provide max thrust data with 16" and 18" props, here:

I think 5xxx motors will be to big for my intension, I will probably not fly with bigger props than 1555. On the 810 frame.

I have seen DYS have some motors in the right size, but i am unsure of the quality and efficiency.

So use 4xxx motors or 3xxx if your copter not too heavy.

I don't have expensive motor, but I have DYS, Emax, Sunnysky, Racerstar, ZTW and XXD motors.
I think DYS quality on par with Sunnysky and ZTW, smooth bearings,
Emax and Racerstar build quality also not bad, slight bearing noise,
XXD noisy bearings.

No motor failure in the middle of the flight so far, I'm not so worried about the motor, even 2 years old cheap XXD motors still running ok.

My accidents:
- ESC failure (1X)
- Ran out battery (no timer, no batt alarm, no telemetry, so = my fault)
- Heavy wind,
- and the rest of my crashes caused by me..

About efficiency, you can use manufacturers data as a build guidance. don't trust too much, need to test by yourself, or try to find reviewers data.

Tarot 41xx seems the efficiency champion so far, for low cost motors.
And mfr data was been confirmed by user flights data.

Tarot martin 4006 and 4008,

Amazing specs and efficiency, but don't trust to much,
4008 mfr data suggested 15-18" props, but i don't believe 85g motor can drive 17-18" props properly,
Should be good for you with 15-16" props, efficient motors, but no where near mfr data, here:
