I was looking at align's web site and I can't figure out which motor is the DH. They list them all as 400L & LF or 400S & LS with different speeds.

GaryJ --

that's because the 400DH ISN"T an Align motor. It's made by Just Go Fly, and for the $$$, is a much better performer than the Align.

400DH with an 8 tooth pinion is a real go getter.

I run the 400DH with the 9 tooth it comes with. This is only my 3rd day flying the rex but I can do flips with it no problem, plenty of climb out.

Should I be running a smaller pinion ?

OK I had a perfectly good flying trex with a 2800SF CC35 with ver 1.12
HIGH Gov with my jr9x throttle epa set for -120 to +120 and a throttle position of 70% I was flying about 2100 rpm with a 13t pinion.

Then I drop in a brand new 400DH from JGF and and the rpm is really
low like 1700, ok start tweaking it up and after about 85% it get's to 2000 and stops, 100% made no more rpm. So maybe it's the gov
so set it to normal and set throttle curve to 0 to 100% and it won't start
spooling up till about 1/3 stick and then quits/shuts off after 2/3 stick,
WTF is going on.

Please to those with a working 400DH and CC35 what is your settings?

Disable the current limit feature. Had the shut down problem with my 400DH and CC ESC (as did others). Disabling the current limit fixes it.

1.12 SW has requires odd endpoints to work with your TX. I've got to set my throttle to -130% and +80% for it to work well.

I'm running the same as Cheeto. But I was running that first.

Autocalibrating didn't work and governor high didn't work. I was thinking about trying the new software, but with fixed throttle at 80%, I have 2200rpm

well my dh must be a turd. It maxes out at 2020 with the 8tooth and JGF sent me 2 8's instaed of the 8 and 9 I ordered so I can't try that.

Just to make sure put my align 2800sf back in and it rocked again at 2200.

My motor just seems way to slow and the gov mode is running fine with my align and should with the jgf , but even with out gov mode it won't get passed about 1700.

I thought the 400dh doesn't like governor mode. That's what the tech page said about using the 400dh keep it in fixed throttle mode.

Same here. Started out with a 400dh but could never get any power out of it even trying 8,9 and 10 tooth pinions. My 400lf with a 13 tooth pinion gives me no trouble at all and works with gov mode. I see lots of people are having great luck with theirs and I think I`ve tried everything to get it to work. Must be overlooking something?

How did THAT get in there?

Take a look at the 400DH review at trex-tuning.

Me too. ANd if this thing can't work in gov mode I don't want it.

I tried fixed and that was a bust , it spooled up to a whopping 1700 head speed and then turned back of at 2/3 stick.

What a big disappointment so far.
