I'm looking for some feedback on this set up. I'm running nitro now looking to swich to electric on my Rave.

What pinion should I be running for head speeds?

2X 5000 MAH 6S 65C Thunder Power.

ESC 160HV CC

Motor Xera 4035/2y-600

Thanks,
Chris

Chris, here is the magic tool for determining head speeds.

http://www.readyheli.com/headspeed-calculator.html

What's nice about this tool is it takes into account governors on the Castle and Jive and let's you know when the head speed exceeds the max gov overhead of the ESC. I've found this tool is VERY accurate. My real life results have all but matched it exactly.

The only thing you need to know before using the tool is what is your target head speed?

P.S. I sincerely hope that Castle HV 160 works out for you, too many of them popping lately and taking the whole aircraft with it...

Thanks Anthony,

I had seen that set up tool somewhere but could not remember where. Thanks for the link.

As far as the ESC. I have been reading about the issues at hand.

Thanks,
Chris
