Hi guys,

I like to know what pinion does the Furion kit come with?

Also, it would be nice if you could comment on my possile setup below:

Scorpion HK-2221-8 V2 Brushless Motor

Kontronik Jazz Sensorless 40-6-18 ESC

Outrage XP25 3S1P 11.1V 2200mAH 25C

And I guess I would need a 13T pinion.

Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
G

It comes with 11 and 13 tooth pinions. -8 uses the 13 tooth and the -6 scorpion motor uses the 11 tooth pinion.

Very good setup! I use the -6 motor in mine because I like the extra power. The flight time is only 4 minutes though. You will love the furion.

If I get the -6, should I change anything else in my list? Like ESC and Battery...

THanks,

No. You will only need to use the 11 tooth pinion with the -6 motor.

You're gonna love the Furion!

Cool. SO I'm gaining power and HS with a -6 for the cost of shorter flight times compared to the -8? is that all?

Gorgin,

When you build the Furion, the manual shows mounting the tail servo on the right side of the heli. Don't follow the manual on that. Mount the tail servo on the left side as you should with all counter-clockwise rotating heads to avoid blade strikes! Hopefully MA fixed the manual by now. Many of us had to change it after assembly. Some are just taking the risk.

Do you mean clockwise? Seems like CCW would strike on the left?

At the same HS, the -6 and -8 will have almost identical flight times (perhaps 10-15 seconds delta). There is not much difference in the efficiency between the two. The -6 will allow extremely high HS - more than most can use. The -8 maxes out at slightly less than 3200 rpm.

If you use the -6, you will want to keep max HS at about 3200-3400 while using the 2200 mAh, 25C Outrage packs. Any more HS may need larger capacity (2500 mAh) 25C or 30C packs if you fly hard 3D. Good luck.

ehn, yes. I meant clockwise. I was thinking that MA must have been thinking of a counter-clockwise setup to have the servo on the right. Servo goes on left for clockwise rotating heads. Thanks for catching that!

Do you mean the tail blades striking the pushrod ? And by mounting the servo on the left you mean the output wheel facing left ? Thanks.

Hey John...

I think they mean mounting the tail servo on the opposite side of the boom outlined in the manual. Which would be on the left as looking up the boom towards the front of the heli.In the event of a hard boom strike the blades will not wipe out the tail servo.

Oh I see - thanks Mark - would be a heck of a boom strike to hit that far up the boom

It is the paddles that could hit the servo. And it does take a very hard crash to do it. I have mine in that side and have not damaged the servo. I may switch it soon though.
