So, now you're getting the power out of that motor????
yup, sure am, dialed in some different settings in the esc, upped my pitch, and shes firing pretty good now. Not happy about the 4:00 minute flights, guess I should by a few more packs!

na. I didn't get any nibbles. Not worth giving it away. I might give the 3900 a try when it comes out also.

Hey guys.

HeliDirect has the 2206-3900 listed In Stock as of this am. Might have to pick one up...

I'm having a blast with my stock 250 right now, but could use a little more power without the weight.

I also just ordered a 2206-3900.

It says max continuous current 14A so I think the stock esc will be fine with this motor.

It's a small risk but I'm doing the same. Don't mind being a tester for this. I'll put an eagletree on mine and see what it draws before and after the upgrade.

Here is the 3900 as requested "WITH" 2.5mm shaft, 14 tooth would be optimum, you can buy those pinions with setscrew as well from miraclemart.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

It is cool that Scorpion has made a drop in motor, but looking at the stats... it is really just that, it turns a little faster than stock but the max out put is the same as the stock motor? 170 watts... and same amps too? Will this motor be more powerful or just more maintenance? I just finished installing the HK2208-3600, it really was not that big of a chore, and you are getting 220 watts, I only have half a dozen flights, but I can really see the improvement in power, less bogging and a sweet scorpion HUMMMM!, even with the stock ESC, now I just need a CC or the Scorpion 25A and I’ll put the pitch up and really see this thing rip. Some times the easy path is not the most choice guys, sure I had to find a pinion, and widen the motor bolt holes, took 3 minuets, I had to do some creative soldering to keep my connectors the same, and I had to use my dremil to cutoff the extra shaft? I did not change the size of the pinion hole in the motor mount; I just got a new one added the motor, then put on the pinion, and bolted the thing in as a single unit. 50 watts in the application is better than 20% more power.

PS I don’t think the gold metal is touching the frames it is very close on mine but it is not touching!

I will let you know tomorrow hopefully.

Not expecting a huge performance increase, but then again I'm pretty happy with the stock motor performance.

I have a new motor and speed control coming and like a lot of you, I'm happy with the Align stuff. I have a Scorpion motor in every electric heli that I fly except the Quark and a Trex 450 in a scale body. The Scorpion motors do sound wicked good don't they?

I've got to make a 15 tooth pinion to go on the new motor so I won't be testing until next weekend after I get back from Toledo.

Aww man, I thought that was the sound of that special lube slinging off of the motor shaft and hitting the electronics.

I'm running this ESC and its the catzzz azzz !

The the 3600 on a 15T at 90% flat curve. For the Governor to work at its highest headspeed (90). It keeps my headspeed super smooth. With this setup on my Outrage 800s I'm getting a solid 4 minutes of fast flying.

I read the same output wattage / motor weight specs on the 3900 and was not impressed either over the 3600 motor.

Looking forward to someone posting a video of the 3900 in action, then maybe I'll go ahead and try one
