RCX 1304 5000kv

Tested KV:5000kv
Stator W:13mm
Stator H:4mm

Matching very well with a typical 2.5 - 3" prop load, offers similar performance to other 1106 class motors but with a little extra torque under heavy loads.  Probably an extra 0.5 to 1.0 Ncm of torque before starting to show signs of magnetic saturation at full throttle.  Compared against the Emax 1106 4500kv it gives a little extra efficiency at mid throttle for most prop loads.  It's extra KV give it a little bit of an edge even with extremely light prop loads, but like most 1106 motors it's peak efficiency happens a little too high up in torque to really be taken advantage of with a 2" prop load.
