Hi everyone,
I fly a Trex 500,and currently have 3, 5cell 3300mah outrage.I run a 13th tooth pinion on it.I am thinking of getting a few of the outrage 6cell 3000mah this week. Can i still keep my 13 tooth pinion on it still...I am not into any 3d just some flying around the field and some simple aerobatics...
Thanks for the help,
Dan

Just ran the below calc for you and it looks like your average HS at 100% throttle will go from around 2144 up to 2572.

The 500 definately likes high headspeed but I think you will find that there will not be a happy medium when switching from 5 cell to 6 cell batteries without changing the pinion. IMHO I would start buying Outrage 6 cell 3000mAh packs and start selling your 5 cell. You will be very happy.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

13T is really made for a 6S setup. HS needs to be about 2600 to make her stable.

Rookie Question
I currently use 3S 2200 Outrage batteries for my Trex 450. I have heard that you can tie two of these batteries together and run a 6S set up on a Trex 500.

Do any of you guys know if this is possible, and if so, will the Outrage batteries that I am running work?

Thanks for your help!

Very possible and done by many people. You will need a y-connector for your battery lead that connects the two batteries in serial for 6S 2200mah total.
