1) The Quadshot comes with 1500kV outrunner motors. They are made for parkflyers. The ESCs are 12A max.

2) To save weight and reduce the number of parts, we went with a baseless motor. To mount something with an X style mount an adapter is needed. The QS does not need to be upgraded if you do not intend to carry a heavier payload than what it was designed for. It has INSANE amounts of power without a camera attached. If the weight limit is to be exceeded, you should choose motors that would give you at least a 1.5x thrust to weight ratio, and more is always better. Also, the pylon height is only tall enough to fit 9.5" props IIRC as they would interfere if any larger, but the motor adapter that we have dreamt up would allow for up to 11" props or so. Or, you could put larger motors on just the bottom and fit 10" props on those.
