    some of you already use it ? if you have a reference you'll make me happy ....

    Brushless motors are DC as well. What do you mean? Brushed? AC? Geared?

    Significantly quieter than regular brushed motor because there is no noise caused by the contact between brushes and the commutator. As for how much quieter, that would depend on RPM, size, aetc.

    In my experience the noise is not from the motor brushes, but can be from the choice of gearbox.

    Brushless is more efficient, producing more power and less heat,
    and therefore better but are more expensive.
