Just wondering what brushless motors you recomend for a 150g undercutter. Thanks.

Quanum 1806 (the purple one)

Great balance of performance and weight with a 3mm shaft for robustness.

No idea, I'm a pretty stubborn builder when I find a component that just works. For ESC's that's always been the afro 12A as I like poking SimonK. However it hasn't really kept with the times and I am now fitting some Multistar 12A BLHeli ones to test.
