Hi, im wondering if the stock 600 esp electronics (ESC, Motor) will supply enough power and torque to put it through tic toes and chaos on 6S set up. Or should I be thinking about 8S?

I already have a 6S 4200mah pack but will it be enough to aggressive 3D it? If I do go down the 8S route I will get a PLETTENBERG ORBIT 25-8 motor and matching ESC, but it will save me lots of money if I just stick with the 6S set up from my current heli.

Any comments appreicated.

You can do everything you want on the 600E on 6s. It depends on the batteries you have. 6s is usually harder on batteries doing hard 3d, pulling a lot of amps. That is why they sell higher C rated batteries, to deal with this better. People have been doing hard 3D on 6s for years. It should be fine. 8s is a little easier on your batteries but if you really want more power, going 10s or even 12s would be the way to go. That said, many people are happy with their 6s and 8s setups, including myself. I have run 6s, 8s and 10s setups.

Stock works quite well. 6s 5000mah 25C will give you about 4 minutes mild 3D in cool climes around 20-25 Celicius. Above 25 Celicius the pack does get hot, near 150 degrees. 4200 mah will work, but time reduced to about 3 minutes.

I am really happy with my 600esp that I run on 6 cells. You just have to be smooth on the collective. If you are worried about power and want to go more cells, I would forget about 8 cell and either go 10 or 12 cell.

Thanks for the tips guys, but being only 16 I cant afford to go to 10S or 12S as I just cant afford it . But I've seen a few vids of sponsoured pilots from my favourite lipo distributor and there running 600's on 8S.

Any one know if the PLETTENBERG ORBIT 25-8 runs on 8S?

At your age since money is an issue, I personally would use 6 cells. I think you would be happy with it.

I can afford 8S, and I will be doing tic toes and chaoses so I think 6S is a bit border line IMO. But I will try it on 6S before I try 8S.
