Xnova Lightning 4530-525KV Brushless Motor (Shaft A)
An absolute BEAST of a motor. Great quality; numerous shaft lengths available. Wires are very stiff; tips are pretinned. I'm not a fan of the small bullet connectors they include with the motor, but that's my only gripe. The motor is high-quality, runs smooth and cool, and puts out a metric-sh*$-ton of power. It's the only motor I flyings my 700 machines.

Xnova Lightning 4530-525KV Brushless Motor (Shaft A)
These are in my opinion the best motors on the market!

They have plenty of reserve power, are very energy efficient, and run cool and very smoothly. I have xnova motors in 5 different helicopters and a B17. They are always cool to the touch even after extremely hard flying. My Helicopters all fly on 6S 5000 packs (three of them are 12s two are 6s configuration) and I get up to 9 to 12 minutes of flight time depending on how hard I fly. The battery, ESC, and motor are all less than 105 degrees Fahrenheit on an 80 degree day!

Motor is excellent due to the high efficient power as noted by its low temperature and current used in batteries. As a long term customer to AMAIN Hobbies, I must say that they always provide excellent customer service, their website is the easiest to search on, and their product availability is greater than their competition. Derrick in customer service went above and beyond to help me this time and I appreciate that more than competitive prices or discounts. Thank you Derrick.
