The Scorpion 1600Kv is twice as powerful as the stock motor. The 1400 has a 200watt advantage over the 1600.

The stock motor makes just over 1hp.

The 1600KV makes 1.97hp. Almost twice as much.

You wont be disapointed with it. The videos in my gallery are with the 1600.

man thats a bummer you had to get rid of it especially for 13K as you have at least that in it. They are nice. I bought mine new in 01 and it has 12,184 mi on the odometer. I have been thinking of selling it. I cant seem to officially put it up though.

It depend on what esc you want to use.
If you want to keep using ice50,
I think the 1600kv is better.
Because the 1400kv current draw more than 1600kv.
If you want to use 1400kv,
I think you need to replace your ESC.(maybe Ice75)

I have scorpion 1600kv on my Logo400 V-bar.
It's similar your trex500 fbl.(same 425mm main blades & FBL)

You can refer my video.

Hi!yoshgixxer

My HS is around 2700~2800rpm .
Gear rate is 200/16 = 12.5
For trex500, you can try 13t or 14t pinon,
You can use ice50 to log your hs & current.
Then find which one is better.

I think HS:2800rpm & pitch :+- 13deree will be fine for 3D.
Especially the FBL is more efficient & agilely.
Maybe you can't notice a 200w difference.
But you will notice the difference between FBL & Flybarred.

Happy new year!

Why are you guys fooling around with those weak motors? Look no further than the Turnigy Typhoon 500H (1900Kv) motor for the T-Rex 500 .
