Regarding the 11 tooth pinion. On a machine swinging no larger that 713's, you should be okay. The issue with 11 tooth pinions and stripping main gears deals with the extra loading caused by stretching to 750 or larger blades. Tony Whiteside has been running an 11-tooth pinion on his Rush for quite some time, but he's also running 693's. Just a heads up.

I do think you'll be better off with staying with the 12 tooth pinion, though. With your motor KV you should be able to get in the sweet spot head speed wise (2200rpm) very easily.

When you look at the weight of the motors make sure they are listing them either with or without wires. I know the kde is the weight with wires and bullet connectors. I have seen a lot of them listed without the wires. Can't remember which ones without looking. Even tho the kde is still the heaviest one just not as bad as it looks there. But on the other hand it will handle all the electricity you can send it and it has power. The only other motor I would consider would be the scorpion 4530-510 limited one I think that is the number and that is only because it is the only thing close to the power of the kde. We chose kde because of the service and support you get from Patrick Not that scorpion isn't good but it sure is easier to work with someone that is close to my timezone and shipping is a lot easier.

Patrick by far gives the absolute best customer service hands down.

reason:.... i had a fun fly to go to. so Thursday evening i took out my Rush and did a quick shake down run to make sure everything was good for the fun fly. just so happen my motor failed. i contacted Patrick and he was willing to over night a motor to me so i could have it Saturday. well i was leaving for the fun fly Friday morning so that wouldn't work. then he offered to ship it over night to the hotel i was staying at. Friday i arrived at the hotel to find the motor waiting for me. did a quick motor swap in the hotel room and off to the fun fly i went.
