Default Thinking about trying this motor

Thinking about getting a Scorpion HKIII 5020 motor for my new 700 build, has anyone tried the 50 series motors?

I think those were one of the earlier scorpion motors. not much grunt at all, but pretty efficient for less aggressive flying. definately much less power than a 4525, maybe even less than a 4035.

Good to know, think I will just stick with the 4525. Thanks

I have a HK5020 in my Goblin 700 and while its not a power house it is ok, probably similar to a 4035 as mentioned. I also have a HK5025 in my SOXOS DB7 and it is a nice torquey motor and loves grunting from low head speeds. The HK4530 I have in one of my other heli's has more power, but I think the 5025 does better on the low head speed.
