Question

best drone motors for the least money


Hi everyone who is looking at this thread,
I'm building a race quad to replace the first one, which I crashed so badly the gyro in the flight controller, the ESCs and motors broke.
I want the quad to be light, to fly a decent amount of time (~20 min) and to be fast. I'm opting for the Druckbär ultralight 4 race quad frame with the adaptor for 30*30 electronics. I'm planning to fly it on my cc3d flight controller and BL Heli s LittleBee-spring 30A Dshot ESCs since I have them lying around and don't want to buy a 4-in one esc. I'm sure I can mount them to fit the frame.
This leaves one question: which motors to use. Since the motors used on my first quad are broken, I thought I might as well get different ones to see how the performance differs. I've spent a while searching for good motors but haven't found any good ones.

I'd appreciate if some people could share their ideas and experiences with different motor brands and types, so I can have an easier time chosing the right ones.

Thanks Hugo secondname

PS the drone is supposed to run 5'' gemfan hulkie props.

My original motors were Crazepony 2300 kv DX2205 race drone motors.
