Hello Everyone,

I'm on my third set of Align carbons on my SEv2. I recently bought a couple pairs of Align Pro Woodies 325mm. What pinion should I run on my XL motor to safely use the wood blades?

I do not have a tach. I'm currently running a 12 tooth pinion with my carbons.

Many thanks for your advice!
Pete

I think 12T would be OK. I wouldn't go to the 13T pinion though.

If you want to actually stay in the limits Align recommends go with a 10T pinion. That'll put you at around 2400 to 2500 RPM with the XL motor. A 12T puts you at around 2900 RPM, well above the 2400 limit Align recommends for their woodies. I've seen plenty of posts from people reporting using Align woodies at higher RPMs with no problem, but I've also seen a couple reports of the blades disintegrating at high head speeds, so your call.

align has up their limit on the woodies to 2800rpm. not that i'm recommending it, but i've ran my abit dinged up woodies with 13t 100% across the board doing hard 3D without issue. i'm now using V blades and yes, i'm alot happier.

mother earth, STOP JUMPING UP AND ROBBING MY WALLET!!!
