I know there are a lot of threads about motor choice out there. Having gone through a large number of them, I've sorted my list down to these two:

NeuMotors 1105-3Y (3500kv, 65g)
Medusa Research 28-32-2800 (2800kv, 70g)

I'm looking for any kind of head-to-head comparison on a 4s-system weighing factors like power, endurance (flight times 10 min or more) and wear on batteries (excessive heat generation).

There are a couple threads out there that expound the values of each of these motors on 4s, but no direct comparisons. They seem to be pretty evenly matched, so looking for any kind of tie-breaker input.

I haven't bought anything yet, but I'm planning to couple this motor with a Jazz 40-6-18 and TP-2100 4S Pro Lites. Open to any other suggestions.

Thanks,
Chris

Neu 1105-3Y
I am using the Neu MH-3500 also but with 3 cells. I would now go with 4 cells to get more power and less current. The Jazz ESC is the best there is.
I am dissapointed with my CC25 using its gov mode. Just doesn't work as well as the Jazz. I plan on buying both a Jazz and some TP pro-lites in the near future.

You also should use a pcm receiver which I just switched over to and now glitches are non existent. Piece of mind.

The TP2100 Pro-lites should be a good match.

Just going to bump this once and see if anyone has any thoughts on these two motors in direct comparison.

Thanks,

I'm using the NEU 1105 motor (9T) with TP 2100 4s Pro-lites, Jazz ESC. With hovering and circuits my flight time is close to 14 mins. plus. I'm only using wood blades but this heli can punch up better than my Raptor .50. Not sure what it will do with carbon blades Previous owner of this heli is probably the best 3d pilot in Hawaii and he can do tick tocks, chaos, funnels, etc.. with this set-up.

Sorry, cannot comment on the other motor, hopefully someone else can give inputs.

I have tested neu,medusa ,mega and lehner and others in my IMHO these are the top motors , I would have to say that the two top are the Medusa and Lehner for raw 3D power on 3s and 4s setups ...the others are also most Excellent too ....when comparisons are done on paper it does not always hold true in real life testing because manufacturas info tend to hype there info from what I have seen time and time again ,
also there are tons of variables when testing is done : type of ESC, BEC, brand and generation of battery, and there are differences in blades and heli setups , pinions, head speeds etc etc..all these variables make big differences so where you here about comparisons where they tested as apples and apples?
that being said take all opinions on which is "THE BEST" with a grain of salt ...I always recommend is that YOU try it and see for yourself ..see what pilots in your area are flying and go with what is proven to work .... not what is hyped ...

Thank you!
Thanks all for your input. RCHover, I understand your points about variables making comparisons difficult. That is why I was hoping to reach some people that might have tested these motors under similar/identical conditions and see if any conclusions were reached.

It seems you have done that and I appreciate your input, both in PM and in this thread. Just fishing for a couple other opinions because I figure you might have a slight bias based on what you stock. What I've found in my limited, but ongoing, research is that there are happy people with both motors running on 4s and it seems I can't really go wrong with either, which is comforting, but still leaves me with a choice to make.

I just find it interesting that there is no clear-cut favorite for motor choice (or CF frames or tail servos) on the T-Rex the way there seems to be with the Hyper 50 for Raptor and Sceadu Evo guys. But I guess that's one of the beauties of this hobby: the choices and options we have to get what suits each of us individually. The past couple of weeks "researching" have admittedly been a lot of fun, and that's still what it's all about.

Thanks,
Chris

Yup a lot of variables including pocketbook. I have no experience with either of these, but based on what I have read, I bet you would be happy with either. My immediate "Guess" would be the Medusa.
