Hi, Running 3s flightpower batteries at the moment but the battery, motor and speed controller get quite hot. Hot enough to slightly puff the batteries. I believe its because I push it hard with 3000rpm and big pitch throws and this I like. If I go to 4s batteries will stock SC and motor handle it. Will everything run cooler because of higher voltage making stock motor work less?

cheers

What is your pitch and cyclic range?
The ESC i think they all handle 4S (the new ones do for sure) and the motor i am unsure. Are your sure your drive system is running free?

My ESC/motor/batts always ran hotter on the E325 than any other heli i owned.

I think that if you change out that stock motor, things will run cooler. I am using JGF500th/13, Aligh 35ampESC, Sport BEC, EVO 2170mah 25c. My electronics are barely warm after 6 min. of sport flying. Performance Plus has great batteries at a great price. Lots of power.

yah i'd ditch the stock motor if you like to fly more aggressive. Get the jgf 500th or the scorpion

I learned something very important in the last week or so. The stock motor does not like being run at 100% throttle. It would rather be loaded down and run at 80-85% with a bigger pinion. I found I get better run times with a 13T at 85% than an 11T at 95%. Figure that out. I guess it is better to run higher head speed at less throttle and less pitch.

Yes but less throttle heats the ESC up, the problem is the stock motor. I put the Scorpion HK-2221-8 in with a 12T pinion and could get 5 mins of hard 3D with a 2500 pack, 13T was awesome but I liked the extra flight time on 12T. Im now using the same motor on 4s with a 10T pinion (innov8tivedesigns.com)! Still get 5 mins but with 2100 packs and main gear stripping power!

60% of the time, it works every time!
