ZTW Spider 2205 2300kv Full Results  [CLICK HERE]


This is a new motor from ZTW that recently hit the market.  Silver-Drone created a branded version with a few tweaks and sent one over for testing.  I've got a high KV version as well, so look out for the results of that one in the high KV series of tests in the next bit. Once I've done the full bank of motors, I'll do a document sumarizing the direct comparisons.

The newest offering in motors from ZTW is a take on the popular 2205 motors hitting the market right now and looks like a solid option.  Build quality is solid. Bearings feel smooth and machining quality is excellent.  The motor weighs in a little under 28g. The windings are tight and look good, though a slightly thinner gauge than the DYS and ZMX motors single wire windings, which seem to be the closest competitors in the performance/price range.

Now on to the bench results!

Test Results

Given the similarities between this motor and the ZMX and DYS motors it is no surprise to see the results lining up almost perfectly with the other two motors.  The three of these motors are so close in perfomance I would guess they'd be almost indesguishable in flight.  The ZMX edges out a bit and the DYS drops behind a bit, overall the results are extremely close.  There's no real surprises here, just solid performance across the board.  Temperature was managable, though getting quite hot on the last two props.  Defintiely some smell of resin on the GemFan 5x4.6BN (HQ 5x4.5BN equivalent) and the KingKong 6x4.  Results here are very respecatable.
