Not sure what you mean by "recommended effciency." I can tell you that I use a Scorpion -6 and a Phoenix 40 on my Furion 450 and it works just fine with decent flight times (4:00+ minutes at 3000 RPM).

Don't use the outrunner mode, set it at 8KHz.

If you want max efficiency, you may want to try the outrunner mode. I used it on my -6 for a while. It is much more powerful than on a fixed frequency like 8kHz. However, it may lose commutation at some point. I got 50 flights before this happened. If it does, you must go back in to the setup and reselect outrunner (or some fixed freq. like 8kHz) for it to work properly again. I eventually did set mine to 8kHz, but it is not as strong or as efficient this way.

i cant figure out how to post my logs here, logged my first logs iwh the scorpion 8 on 4cell iwh tthe ice 50. 12tooth gov at 3200. will run more logs tommorrow, have set gov at 3400 now at 91.8% throttle. 3500 is the most i can govern with scorpion 8 on 4cell with the 12tooth

logs are in my gallery. it was just hover test flight with a fw pitch pumps at the end.
