I ordered the -8, if you want one, you'll have to wait a week or so. Just like me.

oh man, you puffed your FlightPower Tyler? Crazy

You can only run those for like 3 minutes with the HK2221-6 motor or it puts too much heat on the lipo and cooks it.

The HK2221-8 motor is in stock here.

http://www.3dxhobbies.com/Scorpion_...p/hk-2221-8.htm

I bet you can sell your Scorpion 6 motor in like 2 hours Tyler if you decide to sell it and get the 8 instead.

You can get your FlightPower Lipo replaced at 50% cost like I did too.

BTW, my new Gazaur Mars 480 shipped today!!!!! Oh yea baby!!!! That bad boy is gonna put on a killer 3Dz show!!!! Get ready Jason!!

Also, running the 11t pinion might have killed your pack faster too Tyler.

Mitch,

I had that motor when it just came out. it was 13T pinion but I was so disappointed of the power. After I realized that 12T would give you totally difference performance. So, go for 12T instead of 13T

PS. Did you buy that 90?

Yes, I put down a deposit, i'll pick it up this weekend. You know more about it than I, fill me in on it. I'm pretty excited about it, like I was when I got my first 450. Dave said it is a raptor 90 with some upgrades. What motor is in it? I know it's a OS90 Max, but that's all I know.

Dang Mitch, your going big time now with a 90. Thats a HUGE jump in size. I remember the first few times I flew my Raptor e550 with 550mm blades it scared the crap out of me.

I can't imagine what it gonna feel like for you with that 90 Nitro. What blade size it use? Like 900mm hence, 90?

Dude, that would be a great choice. The motor in it was the "91SX-H Ringed Special Competition w/Pump". The retail is 379.99 at towerhobbies.com

Man get it finished so that I have one more .90 flying buddy. Try to get some hi-torque servos for the cyclic like the BLS451's, bls351's, hitec HS-5985MG's, JR 8717'S (the bls351's will beat Jason with his JR8717's)

Pipe for that engine can be the Hatori SB-18FH (actually this one is a muffler rather than a pipe) or the Muscle Pipe MP5 90.

Get revmax (throttle limiter) and a fast cheap servo like the 9650, 9257 for the throttle.

Radix 710 for the blades.

Finally, put the 30% nitro fuel in and fly it!

congrats mitch for the 90, youll like it. i myself am headed for a 90 right as we speak

for the trex 450 motors, i am going to pick up a few tpx new v2 packs to destroy while i test the new scorpion motors. i do want to get a flight in with the hk-2221-6 on 11t pinion (same one bert was using on his) and get that on video. training with not that much power now should be interesting what going to a ton of power will look like.

i might eventually setting for the 10t on the 6 and the 12t on the 8. but who knows what the new prototypes will do

Can I use a 9253 for the throttle? I've got one that I got with a 401 gyro I bought, it's like new. Crap. anyone need a 9253?

Not sure what blades are on it? Thunder tiger carbon graphite is what they say. They're BIG!

Ya, it's a big step. I'm pretty excited.

those were 710mm Thunder Tiger blades and those definitely work really well.

Cool, 710mm.

What is a "revmax" ? I don't know and I gotta ask.

revmax is a limiter which limits your head speed to certain values. i.e. 1950 rpm. You really need this for a 90 to prevent the engine from overspeeding causing overheating
