The 6s goodies arrived from HD today so I tried them out on my first Beam today
The 1700kv motor with 11t pinion had plenty of power and stayed cool,the battery was cooler than the 3s -6 runs,esc no heat at all..
I have to get the tail working a little better as it was bouncing around and drifting.I was not able to bog it as the tail would let go first It did not drop any headspeed for 6min though

The longer boom is from the G5 and the belt is 475t (+25t over stock)
outrage FG 350mm blades
Overall the cyclic was a little slower but the collective had good pop(enough to bring the tail around)not as balistic as the 6 turn Scorpion but probably double the flight time....I like it

That looks very cool! Where did you get the belt and is that the 1600kv or 1700kv Outrage motor? I have 3 of those packs for a G5 build but just picked up a Beam and this looks pretty good!

I checked the mech trim in rate mode,idle up and it was good.
the lower TR speed may require tail blades with more area ?
the TR grips have the weight mod.

The ESC was PlugNPlay , no suprises so far ,a bargin at $50
My friend Tim has the G5 and said to change the timing and softstart but I need to get a Eagletree baseline first..

I hope you get it sorted, should be a really cool setup! I have seen a few posts about the FG G5 blade being OK for the light stuff but only so so when pushed.

Why would you ruin a high performance flying Beam E4 by trying to make it a cloned Outrage G5 that flies like crap?

I think you might find TeamBeamUSA is an overzealous Beam owner and nothing more!

who cloned a G5 ? This is about HI VOLTAGE ,low amps and long flight times,
the bigger disk and streatch job is a bonus too.Why do you think there are some 10s 600s out there?
The 6s stuff is going on Beam #2 anyway when I get the rest off the electronics
The Scorpion-6 is going back in this one , I would miss my ballistic 4 min thumb check too much otherwise

You know high voltage and lower amperage is becoming
more popular and i think we will start seeing more
setups like this.

The Outrage G5 is designed to fly on a high volt setup.

The Beam E4 isn't. Its a nice effort, but you probably won't like how crapy it will fly compared with a 3s setup.

Even the Outrage G5 guys are complaining how slow theirs flys, and say its only good for sport flying.

But for hard extreme 3D, nothing can compete against the Beam E4 on a 3s setup.

Maybe if your just a sport flying, then you'll be happy.

I have a 4S setup with a Scorpion 2221-10 turn
that has insane power and will do 3D as good
or better than any 3s ive seen.
The weight difference is about the same as the weight
of the canopy. So i can take my canopy off
and be the same weight as 3S setup but more power.
I have flown both ways and the higher voltage setup
is wayyyy better hands down.

You might want to have darksidedave on your reasearch and development team. Rather than bash him for trying to improve a great flying heli, that may become a greater flying heli with twice the flight time.

Team Beam,
The application for Beam Team membership did not encourage you to anonymously join the only semi-active forum with a decent Beam thread and talk down to the customers (us) that are actually BUYING the product.

We pay our money for a product and are entitled to build them as WE see fit.

If you are a Team member, you should be an good will ambassador of the product. If you actually work for the company, you need lessons on how to interact with the paying customers that are using the product that you represent

In short, lose the attitude. Try to help us, not piss us off!
