I plowed it in the ground hard today. The heli itself is scrapped. Here is the deal. Im thinking about trying a Trex but only if i can use all the electronics from my shogun. Here is what i have. Himax 4200, PH35, (3) hs56, (1) hs50, berg 5, gy240, TP1320. If this will work i might try the Trex. Thanks

With an 11T pinion, that motor and setup will work fine. You may even want to get another 2100mah battery, but the 1320 will give you about 8 minutes.

Yeah, i figured the 1320 with the trex would be pushing it. At least i can re use the electronics. You dont think the 11T would be too much? I was planning on the 9T. From what i have read is the tail rpm is very high. thanks

I think the 1320 are a better match then a 2100. I have the 2100's and they are really pushing the weight limit for this thing. 1320 give you like 8 min I hear. But its a better 8 min of flying then you get with the extra weight from the 2100. The 2100 is around 12 min. Its allot more effiecient to fly the 1320 you get more bang for you mAh.

Im going to use the 1320 but need another pack and the only other option i see above 1320 from TP is 1900. I have had good experience with TP so want to stick with it. I see a 1700 but its not a gen 2 super dynamic like the 1320 i have. I dont know what the differences are. The 1700 is also listed cheaper but cant figure out why since its a bigger pack.

Must stick with Gen2 packs with TP for these EP helicopters. The Gen 2 put out a higher discharge rate. It also helps keep your pack from cooking. The discharge rate is critical in having good performance. 10-12C is good I have seen up to 15C in some packs.
