Hi JM, Although I have 4 of the RC Timer 5010's I haven't used them yet.

After reading others reviews of them I don't think they are ideal for my needs, they have manufacturing and bearing issues.

That said though assuming they are not defective I would expect good efficiency at a light loading with a large prop.

They have been successfully used in long endurance Quadcopters even with 18650 lithium batteries.

I do not think they are rugged enough for continuous or heavy load use though which requires high end KDE or Tiger Motor level of construction.

For fun, endurance record setting or a light quadcopter for occasional use they can deliver exceptional performance.

I will probably eventually put them in a light quad myself.

Best Regards,

Wow thank you for the informative response.  I am also looking at heavier load use so probably not the best route for me to go.
