Has anyone found a 12 tooth pinion for the 430 motor?
if so how do you like it?
I like my 11 tooth , does great , kool motor, slightly warm battery , I think a 13 is a little over kill for me , but I`d like to try a 12
Thanks

"I think a 13 is a little over kill for me"

What makes you think this? If you are using a high C battery (like a prolite 2100) then it will supply plenty of current for awesome power. My XL climbs out at least as good as my 50 with a 13t.

Does your motor stay kool?
Mine with a 11 tooth stays almost at ambient temp.
I might try the 13 though just so I`ll know.
Thanks,

I would love a 12 too...

the 13 is a great set up... but it just makes the flights too short..
the 11 makes for longer flights..,. but there is just a touch of bogging in a few moves...

I think a 12 would make a happy medium.... plenty of headspeed
and a little bit longer flights.....

I'm old, bitter, and don't like people.... get over it

Try Hobby Lobby. I just got a 10t and a 12t both 3.2mm. Ikarus steel pinions. Fast shipping too.

i am not sure if this would help with the flight times, but T-rex tuning has an article about setting your throttle curve using a tach. Essentially if a 13 tooth is running to fast lets say 2900-3000 for your type of flying set the throttle curve a zero pitch to the desired head speed. If using the 11 tooth you can't get more than 2400, put on the 13 tooth and with a tach increase your throttle % at zero pitch until desired head speed is reached.

that is an option...but if you are running the motor slower, it is not quite as effiecient, and much harder on the ESC...

Good find on the other pinions...may give one a try
