T-REX 600 › 600 EFL Good motor choice?

I have a 600EFL. It currently has a Scorpion 4035-500kv motor in it. I like the power, but I hate how fat the motor is. With any hard 3d, it flexes the frame and the motor rubs my servos. I have already spaced out one side of the front servos quite a bit, but it still manages to rub the servo cases when flown hard enough.

What are my options for a different motor that still puts out tons of power but won't rub the servos when the frame flexes a bit? I am running the heli on 12s with Thunder Power 65c 3300s. Any advice would be appreciated. I like the Scorpion 4035's power, but I am afraid that long term flying is just going to tear up my servos over time. I know the KDE 600xf is an option, but I have a few KDE motors in other helis and they seem to be very power hungry. What other options might fit without rubbing?

I would just swap to a different 600, but unfortunately I am pretty deep into this one. I bought the heli, few battery trays, spare frame sides and some other random parts so I hate to give up on it now but the servos rubbing this huge motor is driving me crazy I have considered selling it but I hardly have any flights on it yet to even see how well it flies.

Have you tried the standard align motor 510kv that's what I use on 12s I reckon it works great.

I haven't tried the stock motor. I was thinking about picking one up since they come across ebay pretty often for under 100 bucks new.

Any other options out there that are worth checking out?

stay away from 700 size engines on that heli, try the 600XF best motor to work in there.

Ya, that quantum was a monster in there. I wouldn't mind squeezing that one in there.

Do you need a Scorpion 4035-500 or a Hacker a40-10L with only 5 flights??

Check this one out looks like it is in good condition.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D
