It’s true that about 6-9 months ago the EMAX ‘red bottoms’ took the 250 FPV racing guys/gals by storm and was the ‘must have’ However the other manufacturers soon caught up and now there are many choices of quality, powerful, fast motors around.
- DYS MR2205-2300KV Race Edition
- DYS SE2205-2300/2550KV PRO Race Edition
- DYS FIRE2206 Race Spec.
- Cobra CP2205-2300KV Champion Series
see what I mean ? loads of choice, take your pick, check the specs for battery size, prop size, thrust required, sufficient power rating etc. (everybody has their favorites there is no single motor that is the absolute best)
All brushless motors will spin both ways, direction is changed by swapping two of the three wires over. I suspect you may be thinking of 3D acro/stunt flying where the throttle stick centres and motors can be driven in both directions for very quick movements. This is set in the flight controller and also in the ESC’s
It’s a bit specialised as a ‘newbie’ I’d suggest you stay well clear
For a fast, agile, tight quad less than 450mm the best option these days are the F3 or F4 Omnibus controllers. They have OSD (on-screen display) built in (useful for FPV flying) also voltage regulators to power cameras, video transmitters etc. They are small about 35mm square, light and easy to wire up. These FC’s run either Cleanflight or Betaflight, both are free downloads and run on PCs/Macs and allow you to setup your controller to suit your equipment and needs.
ESC’s… my current favourites are LittleBee PRO’s, 20A is sufficient for a 220mm quad. There are others equally good from other manufacturers, look at this guide http://dronetrest.com/t/what-to-consider-when-buying-a-esc-for-your-multirotor/1305
This forum site has many great guides to help you choose your components, make the most of them
If you want some quick suggests for your 220 Thug Pig I’d personlly go with:-
DYS SE2205-2550KV PRO Race Edition motors
F3S AIO all-in-one flight controller
LittleBee PRO 20A, set-up to use OneShot and make sure ‘light damped’ is selected (gives active braking) for rapid responses
RunCam SWIFT FPV camera, if it will fit, if not try a Mini 1000TVL CCD camera
TBS Unify Pro video transmitter, 20mW legal in UK but most fly 200mW
3S 2200mAhr (25C at least) LiPo battery pack
Hope this all helps, it’s all IMHO there’s no bible in this hobby
Let us know how you get on
