Question regarding tools used for testing motor rpm/V - Kv value aka test bed.

what are the tools of choice used by others ?
eagleTree and UniLog I've seen used.

Is there a need for more expensive alternative ?

Personally I've just tested the "AEO Kv/Rpm meter" and has worked very well.
tested on 3 different motors all readings very accurate to manufacture specs.

AEO a small device requires no Rx, Tx or separate device basically has PWM output to control throttle
Has 3 different methods for reading RPM
electromotive force, photoelectric measure and Hall sensor.
separate voltage ,RPM reading and resulting Kv (both load and no load)
settings very easy just determine motor pole value and rotate PWM output dial.
input power up to 40 V

only $50.00 US

thanks
