One quick note, I'm looking for a spindle also and currently I have my
eyes on this one
that one is a little more power for a bit less $ and on 11/11 aliexpress
has the world largest online sale that push it down a few more $$ so I
will order it then.

BTW, I'm also wondering about brush less or not and at firs I was
thinking it wasn't that much of a diff in price but then I realized that
the brush less kit came without power so after adding a power supply we
talking possible double the price or more.
