I have always heard the scorpion 8, and if you wanna get really crazy sick, go with the scorpion 6. But this will take some changes

I've been running the 2221-8 v2 for over about a year now in both my 450's and won't go back. I tried the -6 but the shorter flight times were not worth it on 3S anyway. If you are a real stick banger I've heard the -6 on 4s is great.

If you don't know where you are going any road will take you there.

Do they still have a problem with the bearings? or do you still have to oil them?

I just don't fancy doing this all the time.

Im sure we will need to oil them. But it is not that hard to do.

My friend has the -6 and it is a power hog, he only gets 3:30 and the packs are still in the 110* range, even on a normal 70* day! Oh yea those are the Outrage 2200 30C packs, brand spanking new! I think if I were going this route I'd do the -8 like a few of you have mentioned, oiling the bearings is only one extra step in the preflight?

8 with a 13T and never look back. If the motor holds up this will be the best upgrade by far.
