I fly for 4 minutes, if I am really pushing the heli I land when my radio makes it's first beeps @ 3:40. The Scorpion motor flown the same should be cooler and use a little less mAH, now remember, the motor has more power, less bogging means the motor is pulling those mAH out of your pack faster, but it is more fun, so you may be flying more aggressive, and so the packs will be hotter if you are using the power? I have heard people say the scorpion has the same power as the stock motor, I don't agree with that statement, I don't think they are tapping the available power, so it might be overkill? I saw a flight on youtube of K2's flybarless heli being flown by Matt B. and it had a 1400 Scorpion, I've never seen a more powerfull 500, Bar none! But you need the pro level skills to use it. Adding a better ESC could help, and changing pinions is a sure fire way to apply more of the motors potential to your heli, just be careful of your packs, right now batteries are the weakest link in the chain of more power. The 25 and 30C packs can deliver the needed energy, it just cost them their longevity to do it!
