The motor is 2212 which is make for Brushless gimbal it have 12P. It also comes with the wire for connect to control board.
 half assembled
 The hold for the motor shaft and the left side shaft is a bit small maybe because of the  anodise, I have to drill it for fixing to the motor shaft.
 Finally it is smooth turns. The Vibration damper is soft and hope it will gives jello free.

Hi ,
It is rather busy time for last few weeks. Now it is time to get back to my hobby: built multicopter.
This time I start with Ys-X4 since it is new and good price 650USD for full navigator version ( 8 way points unlimited distance).
First it come to my Overlap Mikrokopter Octo as required from my friend. He like to YS-X6 since it is more simple to setup and control by his Android phone. I post to sale the MK electronic for that requirement. However the YS-X4 come so I give it a try with this OCto electronic replace ment and also my new foldable Y6 which also modify my old design frame.
The Ys-X4 Navidation version is good, the case of FC is make from alu (Why???)  so it rather heavy.

I bought 2 of this from Himodel.

I did replcae the Mk electronic with thsi Ys-X4 and give Octo back to my friend, and forgot to take pics. I will update it soon.
( Image need to updated)

The second is build new fordable Y6 copter which is redesign of my old Y6 version
The Configuration is :
FC: Ys-X4 navigation WiFi version
