Been out of Helis for a very long time but I got the itch again. I got my hands on an old Mikado logo 10 in very good shape. Then I went out and bought one of them century 550 1300kv motors on ebay. Trying to stay on the cheap side. I did buy a new 138t main gear .o7 mod. Could I get some help on what pinion gear it's a mod o7 and what size battery I would need for a head speed around 1750-1800. Do I need to stay with a 4S or can I go to a 6S battery with this motor. And pinion help please

According to Mr. Mel's headspeed calculator, if you go 4s...you will need a 15t pinion but if you 6s....you will need a 10t pinion.

Both pinions will keep you around the 1800 headspeed mark.

Thanks for the help. I tried a few different heli calculators and seemed to get different answers. So I wasn't sure which one to believe. Do you think this motor is up to the task. I am just going to hover and slow fly around the yard, nothing fancy.
