Hi!

I have problem deciding which motor to get for my new Soxos 700 (first 700-size for me).

I was first thinking of getting the Scorpion HKIII 4035-530kv, but when looking around it seems like people are only using it in their 600-630 size helis?!

Motors I have been looking at is:

Scorpion HKIII 4035-530kv
Scorpion HK 4525-520 Ultimate
Quantum 4135-530kv
Quantum 4530-500kv (a real heavy weighter at 550g, but have lots of power)

I'm only doing sport flying and beginners 3D, but I'm evolving fast and at the same time don't want to be held back by lack of power later on...

Will the lighter and cheaper 4035 and 4135 be enough?

Well, the Quantum 500kv is on my 7hv and let me tell you, more power than I need.

Ok, guess I will only regret if I don't get the 4525 or the 4530. The Soxos 700 is a bit on the heavier side so it will probably need the extra power...

Be sure to get the scorpion oil and oil it about every so often. Depending on how much you fly, every 20 flights or so, it does the motor bearings good.
