Just picked up a Scorpion 3026-1400kv motor...currently running the 3016-1600kv. Someone earlier posted that the 1400 will be more powerful, is this true? I assumed higher KV = more power. HS calculators show a loss of about 400 RPM.

Anyone running the -1400 and if so, what pinion? (assuming you're running 6S also)

Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid

Wrong. It just means higher motor rpm. You need a larger pinion for the 1400, 15T is about right.

1400 is lower KV, but it is more powerfull than the 1600. I run 15 tooth on mine.
