Default Watt Age Cobalt?

What is the deal with cobalt motors? Are they made for speed or thrust? I found a Watt Age 400 27T, used, for under $10. I may pick up just for experimenting. Would it be a good choice for lifting a digital camera with my EZ Star for aerial photos?

They suck amps like nobody's business and are woefully inefficient - but geared correctly they could haul a hefty plane into the sky.

They suck
don't use a lipo if you have an intrest in using again.
I have one I will give you.

To clarify the above statement (by me) they pull a battery down crazy fast. I don't even like running nicads in one.
