Ok the align 420 is a dog and has already came apart while hovering. On the advice of my LHS guy, I picked up a Mega ACn 16 EDF 3S. He said this was an insane motor for my Trex. Eventhough I wont be able to take advantage of the hard 3d performance yet due to lack of skill :P, I wanted to spend the money once and not have to upgrade again.

Is there anything I need to be aware of running this motor with an Align 35 ESC and a TP 2100 3s lipo? Can anyone advise of the proper ESC programming as well. I was running 1,2 and 3 in low stick and 4 at mid stick. I assume that may change now.

Thanks for the help as always.

Not sure if it is an "insane" motor for the Rex but...it's a durable and great running motor. With a heat sink, expect 1000+ flights with no maintenance...

The gold coloured Align heat sink fits perfectly on the Mega motor. I have noticed about a 20 degree drop in motor temp while using it.
