    In short, AX18's are faster and have slightly more torque...

    Yeah, after speaking with someone else, I think that AX12 is more appealing. Less power draw, longer life time, less heat issues with the motor.

    Mainly cost and speed. If you can afford the AX-18A I would recommend them. They are stronger and faster. I don't think they draw considerable more power under the same load and speed.

    But the most important factor, it's fun!, really fun to see peoples reaction when PhantomX start moving at slow speed and suddenly burst into full speed. Awesome! LOL
