Does the brushless motor not require gear reduction? Sounds like a good forum discussion point. And has anyone gone to the trouble of matching the brushless motors as a replacement thrust wise, etc, to the old 400, 500 motors, for us who have seen/driven (and can relate to) these motors and want to replace them with a "best match brushless". An gear reduction. I was looking at in the high 3s tied to a 500 BB motor. If you went brushless, turning about a 2 1/5 prop, wouldn't gear reduction be good on a brushless too, or are there properties of the brushless I dont know.
To be honest, I know they cost more (not a big deal), they are electronicly "quieter,right?).
Big Dave,you have tried em, pitch in here.
What are the other advantages?
