Default The thrust of motors

I only know a little about quadcopter motors, and there is a question about my motor's thrust. I bought 4 pcs 2305 2450KV motors from a motor online shop, and I got a thrust data on their motor details, but my fridens said the thrust data probably is wrong, they should at least 1100g/1200g, but he is not sure.So what do you think of this motor thrust data? is this data right or wrong?

Here's a web-site that has many resources to determine tech specifics related to multi-rotor props........:


Follow the various links to educate yourself.....personally, I find GemFan props quite reliable and very economical....!

UAV / FPV or Power Systems subforum would be more suited for advice.

I moved this to the power systems forum which is more appropriate to the question.

As noted above, motors don't produce thrurst. Propellers produce thrust. how much thrust they produce is based on the motor and specs, prop and its specs, battery and its specs and, to some degree the ESC and its specs. A system produces thrust by how it spins the prop. Change any element and the thrust will be different.

There is also an obvious error in the OP's place of residency.......more than likely another global opportunist lookie-loo........
