The Reedy Neo1 One Star seems to be something like a 13 turn brushed, but the Novak SS8.5 is only the equiv. of a 17 turn. That seems like a big step in terms of brushless.

i wish the brushless companies would settle on a universal method dertermining how fast they are lol. at least you knew with a brushed motor.
so what brushed wind is a 4.5 equivelent to like a 7t or something?

I know Novak made or still make a 7.5 & 6.5 these would be faster than a 5800, although there are the Neo 1 2 & 3 Star motors that would be worth looking at too

Novak 4.5 is equiv to a 6t, 5.5 is 8t, 6.5 is 10t, and 7.5 is 12t. That's about what I figured it out to be. the 3.5 has a 10500kV rating, so I'm not even sure what that is. ( 4 turn? )

Something like that, the 3.5 is really fast!

that actually makes sense, an 8.5 would be equivalent to a 17t (8.5 x 2).
