I use the 4020 and unless you are really doing hard 3D or swinging 600mm blades you don't need the 4025. If you are a smack type flyer than the 4025 would benefit you.

My original 4025-1100 works great in my Trex 550 for hard 3D. If I had to replace it, I would buy the newer HKIII, but the older model is just fine.

The newer motors are supposed to improve cooling with the spiral shaped can. I don't know if they are significantly different on the inside.

In my opinion they do run hotter than other motors BUT they do claim to be able to take more heat then other motors too. I hate the fact that they raised the prices on the new Scorpion motors.

FWIW...
The MAIN differences of the two HK-HKIII is the Delta winding.

6T vs 3T3T respectively.

As stated, either one seems overkill for a 500 unless swinging 520~550mm.

Best of luck!
