Hi russ, my setup is like what you described and works very well for me. It's a 4035-500kv hkIII scorpion, castle 120hv esc, 14 tooth stock pinion, 5.3 vbar, set up with the external gov through the vbar at 2100rpm. I can't seem to get mine to bog, or at least my flying style can't. Getting about 5:30min on 5300mah Gens Ace packs.

Hey guys, thanks for the setup info on differant combos with motors, pinions and batteries. I now have a pretty good idea on what to expect with flight times and performance. Luckily I will have both 13 and 14 tooth pinions to choose from when mine arrives so it looks like I will have plenty of options to choose from. In fact, mine should be arriving in a couple of hours from now!. Thanks, Russ

I have gens ace 5300 packs in mine along with a kde 700xf motor (which is quite heavy also) and my whiplash weighs 13.4 lbs. However, it feels light and quick in the air. Having a 2300 hs helps also. Im also in the process of converting it to 14s to get a little more punch out of the motor.

My Whippy came in at 12 lbs 0 oz. And that's with 5000 mah Thor batteries. Check out my pics!

9200RX/BeastX, Kontronik ESC, Align Motor, 4 Servos, and 2 Flight Packs.

That's all that's on this bird!!!

I'm getting 5 1/2 minutes on her, and can probably easily push it to 6. Of course for me, 3D means a really cool TV sitting in my living room!!!

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

I have been doing some testing with differant size battery packs in my Whiplash and have found That the Gens Ace 4400mah packs work best for me. I am getting 5 minute flight times out of them and the model seems much happier with the lighter packs. The 5300mah packs I have been using are good too but there is a noticable differance between the two. I have always liked ThunderPower and Pulse packs in the past and use them in my other models, but for the Whiplash, the Gens Ace and Glacier packs fit much better because they are shorter and I am able to get the weight forward on the model.
