A 2306 mid-Kv option from the Tornado line, sent over by BrotherHobby for testing.
The Tornado motors have always been solid performers, though often they are a bit over-rated on Kv. With this new motor they nailed the stated Kv almost spot on, testing at 2420kv vs the stated 2450kv. The results show this with solid performance and efficiency, hitting close to 1300g at below 30A on light 5" props, over 1400g at the low 30A range on mid-weight 5" props, and approaching 1500g in the upper 30A range on heavy 5" props. This motor really shines on 6" props, easily clearing 1700g of thrust sustained, though it looses some efficiency, peaking at well over 40A sustained. With dynamic unloading though, that is still quite manageable on a 6" rig running larger batteries. As with previous tests, this motor is just ahead on torque and power over the equivalent Returner line (in this case the R5 2450kv), but at the cost of weight. Overall a worthwhile upgrade to the Tornado line.
