Hi

Does any body run trex 450 dominator with 3 cells?

If you do, please share your setup.

Thank you

To do this, you would have to change the motor
The typical 450L uses the BL460MX 1800kV motor with 6S.

But, there is an option for the BL460MX 3200kV motor
This would give you the same headspeed with 3S.

But, the cells in the 3S packs would have to be higher capacity to give you the same flight times as the 6S pack.

Unless you are trying to fly with a lower headspeed, you should stick to the 6S LiPo

Not even close.
I flew a Trex 450 on 3 cells for years
One of the guys at the field converted his Trex 450 from 3S to 6S
It was a completely different helicopter
It was a monster.

I replaced my 450 with a Goblin 380 (6 cell).
I know there are design differences between Align and SAB.

But difference in power between the 3S vs 6S should not be debated.

It really depends on setup you can make a 3s to be very similar to 6s as far as the 460mx motor goes the 3s version produces less power then the 6s version. Also the 3s verision was intended to be used running 325mm blades if you want to get the same feel on 3s you would probably want to look at a different motor.

That said they both fly very well so just depends on what your looking for

Mabey one day i will actually land one of these things !!
