I Wanna Go Fast!
If you own a Blade Inductrix, Eachine E010, or any other brushed micro quad, you know by now that you will need replacement motors at some point (If not already). Below is a chart of the replacement options we have found that are available for the “tiny whoop” sized motors (6x15mm). There is a good chance that some of these are manufactured at the same plant (Chaoli), but we included them all to show the difference in pricing.

You will notice that we have tested some of these motors on the bench. You can see these tests in the video playlist below. Thanks to Benedikt over at Micro Motor Warehouse for providing samples to test!

As a reminder, to get the most life out of your brushed motors:
- Keep motors away from water or corrosive material
- Do not run motors in reverse
- Do not run motors without propellers installed
- Never impede the motor when running. If you crash and the propellers are obstructed, disarm motors so they do not burn up.
- Do not store unused for more than six months
