    ~100 per motor, ~100 per driver.

    If you do a search for VEXTA 5 phaseon eBay. Just had a quick look and as I said they vary a lot, there is a braked motor on there at the moment for 130 with offers, and drivers similarly priced.

    Take off the head.
    Weigh it.
    Get a gas strut that is rated just a little more than the weight of the head.
    Or get 2 struts that add up to the weight when combined.

    The head on my little X2 weight about 15kg so I went with a 20kg strut. Works.
