if you already have tried them, leave a comment and tell how you like or don't like. so i know how others feel.
so, just put them on any motors and give them a try. who knows, you might like them.

the amp draw is too much for 3s 1103 7500kv. i might try 3s 1103 5000kv or slightly bigger motors.

my testing setup:
Amax 1103 7500kv, 2s/3s
and all the usual things people put on their toothpicks.
weight: 46g

my pid is not good. you can tune it better.
2s pid: betaflight default 4.1
3s pid: I - default, P - about 25, D_min - about 14

cutting props ( in the picture ):
you would need to cut 2 times to bring them down to 2.5"
drill a small hole, stick a toothpick in, put props on, and use foam tape to hole nail clipper in place.
take it slow, be patience, and be consistent.

the amp draw is way too high. i'm thinking of lower kv or slightly bigger motors like 1202.5 or 1203.

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
