Default Axi 2217-16 versus Scorpion 3008-32

I'm having trouble deciding which would be the wisest choice for my new 3D interests.
I'm pretty sure of the e-flite Extra 260 3D and in the future, more of the 380-500 sized planes.
The 25 dollar price difference should not effect the choice.
It's the quality and the "correctness" that I'm interested in.
Thanks for everyone's time.

Being an electric newbie is rugged and embarrasing but my post lead to this motor comparison chart that really took the footwork out of
my homework.

I hope this helps the other newbs.

Thank you innova8tive.

I have the Axi 2217-20, and have the Scorpion 3008-32. This scorpion motor is in a different size class than the Axi 2217. The scorpion is much larger and puts out a lot more power, with more amps. That scorpion motor should work well on extra 260. I really like the scorpion. I am flying it on an Eflite Mini Showtime. It works great. It's a reliable motor. I would recommend the scorpion, because it seems to work just as well as the AXI, but for a lot less $. And when you buy the Axi, you don't get anything with it. You have to buy an extra kit to get the attachment hardware.

The chart relates the the Scorpion 3008-32 to the Axi 2808/24, 1190 Kv

I got my info mixed up along the way - someone recommended the Axi for the Airfoilz Extra 260 which is a different animal.

The Scorpion S-2215-18, 1131 Kv and Axi 2217/16, 1050 Kv are in the same class.

The Axi 2217-20 that you have and the Scorpion S-2215-22 at 940 Kv are in the same class.

If the link doesn't work it's because it was changed so if anyone wants to see or download the chart then go to the innov8ives web site above and scroll halfway down the page.

It's in small colored print.

Good luck to all and thanks again, innov8ive for selling Scorpion motors.

What prop are you guys using on the 3008-32? I have this motor on my EF Extra-260 with a 11x5.5E APC and the power is really lacking. I am using a 3S 2100 battery too. Power is less than 1 to 1. It will not even hold a hover, let alone punch out.

Bleesweb,

I am using an APC 12x3.8 SF with the scorpion 3008-32. I like the SF props a lot better than the E props for 3D flying, because they give good torque at lower speeds, which is what you want (IMO) for 3D. The thrust on the E props really picks up at higher RPM. What is the finished weight of your extra? My mini Showtime was 30oz. This motor/prop combo was pretty good for that weight, but not stellar. I could definitely hover without a problem with that setup, and I am at 2500 ft. You might want to check your RPM and amps and full throttle and compare to the scorpion propeller data charts. At the same RPM, you should get almost exactly the same thrust as they get.
