Would also be helpful to know your ESC and pinion size

Im only getting 4 mins with that motor on a 13t pinion, put back just over 2000mah with 2600mah packs but sometimes I put back 2100+! Naughty me!
Ive only really tried the SAB 430's though, I had a set of V's which did seem more efficient but they didnt last long enough for a thorough test!

60% of the time, it works every time!

I did not like the feel of SAB or V . And V's I prefer on most of my helis

This is my second (Scorpion) motor first one changed shafts ever 15 to 20 flights . This motor I put HS bearings before I installed and so far I have about 25 flights and no wobble of motor.
I also tried the Kasama tail with weights but tail was to heavy this would great for sport flying on a belt drive .

I will try to get video this weekend.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

i gess you didn't try the medussa motor and the black align paddles with the raptor 30 fly bar and the 9257 tail servo,then you can say you have the perfect set up the medussa motor is more efficient ,you can bump up the fly time to 5 min with 2500 mha 30C batteries

There will always be a better setup so lets not get into a hijacking
I have not tried the Medussa tried in other helis and did not make me want to try in this one.
Also the 600 fly bar to me made more stable but less responsive .
Now this is my OPINION so we all have a different feel for flight characteristics

I have the 9257 for sale if interested.I wanted more tail weight for CG .

As far as flight time that depends on how you fly so 30 seconds could be eaten up on your setup with my flying style or even get less time.

Richardmid1 , You are OK with 2100 you can go 2080 so a bit over is ok . Also charge at 2.3 amps if using TP packs they like it.

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)
