I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread to talk about our motor and gearing setups to see what's working best so here goes.
Mega Power 400L 3600kv
Castle Creations 25 (low rpm gov. mode, low timing advance)
10 tooth pinion
TP 11.1v 1320
Kokam 11.1v 1500
Hovering at 60% throttle I'm getting about 8-9 minutes on either pack. Unfortunately the weather here won't allow any outside flying right now so I can't comment on performance or flight times. At the end of the flight the battery is very toasty as is the motor, this motor has built in cooling fins so I'd hate to see how hot it would be otherwise.
Can I get some comments on how to increase the flight time and obviously reduce the current draw. I've seen some posts that say amperage is drawn by running a lower throttle setting and to try to run at 85% throttle or higher. That's going to mean going to a 9 tooth pinion then I guess.
For all of you with more electric experience than me, please feel free to make suggestions on how to improve my setup. I didn't originally want to go with the Mega and had ordered the 2800 kv align motor but that didn't work out. I am concerned with the battery temp and would like a little more flying time too.
