Very impressive flying! It looks very fast, but at the same time very controlled...I guess that must be Art.

I think its funny how you run the scorpion -6 with all that talk on RR about them killing packs. I do love mine

they only kill packs if u dont adjust ur flight times accordingly, or if u fly crappy packs that don't have the output needed.

I still get 4.5 minutes with my scorpion -6 v2 and Iam using an align 35 amp esc. Before I was only getting about 3 minutes using the scorpion esc. Power is down a bit with the align but flight time is better.

Using the EvoLite 2500 I am getting about 4.25 mins of 3000+ headspeed using the -6 motor on 11 tooth pinion and Castle Creations 60amp controller. Throttle curve at 100% has the head screaming but gives awesome power. Like Ben I tried the Scorpion Commander 55amp controller and just hated it. After about 8 flights I couldn't take it any more and had to take it off. I understand the new 60amp is much much better.

The scorpion -8 motor is good too on a 13 tooth pinion but is down a little on power compared to the -6.

Great, last Wed I just placed the order for the -8 and the 55.

Guess the 55 is going back.

Are the run times longer with the -8 compared to the -6?

Wondering if I should send it back too and get the -6.

Help!

Perhaps a little longer with the -8 (not alot really) but for my money the -6 is more fun!!

The -8 is fine and you will like it, for me the biggest improvement was not the motor is was the esc change.

I am running the -8 with the Scorpion 55 with no issues at all. Flying free and easy 3D, no wild stuff, I am getting 5 1/2 minutes with some old Electrifly 2100 packs and only putting about 70% back in them. After 5 break in flights on my EVO Lite 2500 (flights starting at 2 1/2 minutes progressing up by 1/2 each time) I am only putting back about 60%. I guess the hardcore 3D really takes it out.

Can you share what sort of issues you were experiencing with the 55?
