Hey Gang,

Thinking of strapping a Tango 45-06, 13t pinion with a two 5s3p Tanic packs on a post 2003 Logo 20, and wondering if the gears are up to it?

Thanks in advance for the input!

you will probably want to run a 12 tooth pinion. 13 tooth will be pretty high headspeed. I run a similar setup on a stretched L14 with 10s2p. the 10s3p will give you longer flight times at the expense of some extra weight. will this be for 3d flying or camera work or?

the 12 tooth will put you right around 2000 rpm. you might want to go 10s2p to lighten the load for 3d flying. I get 8-9 minutes of very hard flying on my 10s2p setup with the 12 tooth.

I've already got several 5s3p's from my Ion-X, so I'll deal with the extra weight until I come up with rebuild funds...

So in your opinion the finer gears are gonna hang in okay?

I'm running 8S4P on an 11T pinion with a Pletti 300/25 ( pretty low KV motor) with 690mm mains and don't have a problem. I went to a 12T pinion at one time and noticed significantly shorter flight times. Although just last week, for kicks, I put a set of 710mm woodies and it stripped the main gear. Replaced the gear and flew with no problem but the 710's got my ESC and motor hot enough that the controler would shut itself down. Goos luck.

Logo 20 stretched, 810mm boom, 690mm mains, Pletti 300/25/ Schultze 32.4 , 8S4P, Priceless!
