Thanks to a private donor I was able to get one of these motors from Lumenier (as well as it's big brother for a later test.)  These have been a frequent request, so I'm glad to have it in! Once I've done the full bank of motors, I'll do a document sumarizing the direct comparisons.

The Lumenier motors have been a pretty regular request for testing, so I was thrilled to get these in.  The build quality on these is stunning.  They're very light weight, and the bearings are super smooth.  The machining is some of the best I've seen, and the design is quite unique and very artistic.  The RX series motors is quite impressive from a build stand point. A minor complaint is that the prop adapter is quite short, but it comes with a low profile lock nut, which is a bit plus.  The lock nut fit perfectly in most of the pros I tried, only not quite fitting on the tallest prop hub, but even then it still had enough grip to hold fine.  The bell is very well balanced, and the stator height measured at 4mm.

Now on to the bench results!

Test Results

Unfortunately the performance of this motor didn't quite live up to the look and build.  It performed very similar to the SunnySky X2204 and MultiStar Elite 2204 motors, which while not horrible, is definitely not the top of the range by a decent margin.  The motor really started running out of torque on the heavier props, starting to show som strain even on the Gemfan 4x4.5 hybrid bullnose, and really heating up by the time it got to the 6x4.  The motor was almost too hot to touch after the last test, and that includes a cooldown between each test with a fan blowing right on the motor till it is below room temperature.  Overall I was hoping for more from this motor.  The power definitely left something to be desired even if the build quality is top notch.
