I am pretty happy with the Align 600M motor so far. It seems like a very good balance between power and runtime. 9 minute flights is insane!

I swear they make some of this crap out of plastic on purpose just because they know you will upgrade it later.

saw kde running there 550 at the brooks funfly last week it was insanly fast in forward flight i had a hard time keeping up with it visualy. it really was impressive using outrage 6s pack notsure what the other ratings were. but with there motor pushing 5.5 hp it really was impressive to watch.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN ITS NOT SET UP FOR THAT, OH THATS WHAT YOU MEAN

i put the kde motor in my 550e and it is a beast.

putting the kde hub in this week to change the gear ratio and be able to run the 164 tooth 700 nitro main gear and an 18 tooth pinion with the kde motor.

just installed these on my 550e:

http://www.kdedirect.com/TREX550MBB.html

the bearing blocks come with a much higher quality radial bearing plus the added thrust bearing in each of the 2 blocks.

they are very nice. this is a good idea if you are trying to run a high power setup.

with the addition of the thrust-bearings to support all axial loads, more power will be available for hard pitch-pumps, 3d maneuvers, and autorotations; as well as protecting the integrity of the radial bearings.
