Hey everyone,

I've finally bit the bullet and decided to go with a 4s setup. I just started doing flips and stuff and it's quite obvious that my batteries aren't up to it. Also, I've been having cutouts and glitches. By going to a 4s setup, I'll have to get a BEC which may help with the glitches. Anywho, here is what my setup is going to be:

Trex SE
HS 50 on tail
HS-55s on head
GY401
SAB blades and align pro blades (will use CF for demonstration this saturday but will use woodies for improving flying)
JGF 450TH
11T pinion
CC35
TP 4s 2100 Pro Lite
Medusa 2.0 amp BEC
Ferrite ring (to further help with the glitches, with the BEC installed, where should I put this?)

Anything I should know before unleashing this little beast ?! I'm thinking about running a 80-75-80 throttle curve as I do not want a 3000+ headspeed just yet. I'm aiming to get about 2600-2800. What throttle setting should I run to get that (have limited access to a tach)? Thanks!

Mikel

You won't want to use much less than 80% throttle.

I'm running my "night" trex on 4S with an 11T pinion on the 450TH.
Running Hyperion LVX1500's. 3050rpm headspeed.
