This is the big brother of the RX2204 motor already tested. As with the smaller motor, these have been a frequent request, so I'm glad to have it in! Thanks to the private donor who sent it over for testing. 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. As with the smaller motor, the build quality on these is stunning. They're amazingly light for a 2206 motor at only 28g, 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. The RX series of motors comes with a prop adapter that is quite short, and you are limited to low profile lock nuts. Fortunately there is a large selection of low profile nuts available from various retailers, and the motor comes with one that allows for just about any prop I tested to fit well.
Now on to the bench results!
Again, as with the RX2204 the performance of this motor didn't quite live up to what I was hoping. Performance wise, it fell just below the T-Motor F40v2, almost across the board, and narrowly beat out the Scorpion 2205 2350kv. It ran well, and stayed cool even on the heavier props. The strong point of this motor seems to be efficiency. It ran almost 3A less current on the 6x4 KingKong than the F40v2 even though it was only about 30g less thrust. That trend held over most of the props, but was particularly strong in the heavier current heavy props like the KingKong and the Gemfan 5x4.6. Across the board it averaged abotu 1-2A less current than the F40v2, while thrust was typically within 30-50g. Another interesting point is that the KV of this motor tested at 2270kv, which is closer a good deal lower than the T-Motor F40v2 which tested at 2400kv. 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.
