What motor, heli and type of flying will it go into? Also, is it the red dot version? If not, then you should either send it to Castle for update or get them to send the part for the update.

I am running them with the Scorp 4525-520 motors in my Goblin 700 and my T700 Pro DFC and had no issues at all with them.

If it's red dotted, run it.

I looked up the specs on the Hacker, and it's not a real high powered motor. I don't think there will be any issues as all.

My rough guess is that the gear ratio needs to be around 13.8 for a 1300 rpm headspeed, just based on a rough 90% efficiency and 50v.

A local guy had one of the new ones here in KC, it was first flight, caught on fire, he took to CC in Olathe Ks, they checked it out, addmitted it was a bad speed controller, They replaced the controller but told him he was outta luck on the brand new crashed heli.

Piece of crap! Stay away from CC!

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!
