Review: iFLIGHT XING 1408

The iFlight XING 1408 are new motors that will be perfect for indoor racing on a 3 inch quad. They have been designed with Patrick Xing, so it is one more motors in the XING series !

We have tested these motors on a 3 inch and as you could see in the video they performed really well


These motors are available on 3600KV or 4100kv, and the weight is around 16g.

As usual motors are packed by pack of 2 in a simple box with all provided screws for the props and to attach it to a frame.

Motors are really strong, and the magnets used are really strong too because it is difficult to turn them with the hand. Moreover the design and the colors used are really nice, eveything is painted.

Provided screws are good quality and already threadlock so it is really a plus.

Wires are good quality and pretty long, perfect for a 3 inch but probably too on a light 5 inch !

As you could see the shaft is really long and you need to use propellers like 3x5x3 to lock correctly them.

If you want to disassemble them, they are using a simple c-clip.

  • Omnibus F4 Nano V4
  • runcam micro swift
  • PROPELLERS HQProp DP 3*5*3
  • LIPO EPS 4S 500mah


We used 1306B from Emax on the same setup and it was subject to oscillation so we added soft mount.

By using the XING1408 it was not any more necessary, so they are very well balance and 0 vibration.

We got around 33A so it seems ok for a 3 inch.

These motors are really great if you are looking for a strong, speed and maniable.

Each motors cost around 16.9$ but you will not be disaointed !!
