EMAX new RS1606 and RS1306 motors

EMAX is introducing new RS1606 and RS1306 series motors.

RS1606 3300KV 4000KV

3-4 inch quadcopters always struggle as the old motor choices were limited to 14xx series motors or bigger 18xx series motors. EMAX brings the 1606 sized powerful motor in a small package to get the correct AUW for 3-4 inch quadcopters. This is also great for frames that are using more HD style components like the RunCam split to carry the extra payload. 

RS1606 motors are available in 3300KV and 4000KV ratings. Weights only 15.8 grams and provide more than 1kg of thrust on 4S!

EMAX also introduced new line of RS1306 motor. We can call it RS1306 Version 2 . Motor was redesigned from the ground up to have better performance. The older motor pulled about 315g of  thrust on 4S battery and the new one pulls up to 500g of thrust on 4S! The bottomless design and T-mount system allowed to make the smaller and lighter motor.
