2 choices...

Either go with a Jazz 55 used9I have one of these on one of my logo 600's) ...and HEATSINK it....or get a new Jive 80HV

The Jive is the best ...but pricey..

Hi Joe,

Here's my power setup:

- X-Era 4030-560 with 12 tooth mod 1.0 pinion
- Jive 80 HV ESC (no heatsink)
- Outrage 10S 4500 mah batteries
- Gohbee 620 mm blades

The thing is absolutely awesome. Everything comes down cool to the touch. The vertical performance is unbelievable. And I get seven minute flights.

But like Jag says, it is a bit of a monster that can get away from me in a hurry when I'm practicing some of my new stuff. If I was to make it an everyday flyer, I would probably bring the pitch down from +- 14 to +- 12 and bring the headspeed down from 2166 rpm to 2100 rpm.

But right now I'm keeping it where it is as a crowd pleaser for flying at the club on the weekends. I use my TRex 600 and Logo 500 for everyday practice.

BTW The Jazz 55 on my 8S TRex with X-Era 4025 also comes down cool to the touch -- without a heatsink. Wish I could say the same about the Jazz 80 on my Logo 500.

Keep 'em flying.

Monsters
The Scorpion 4035-560kv on Outrage 10s 4200's at 2200-2300 chewed into the hardened mainshaft at the oneway bearing somewhere around 60 flights. It stripped a mod .7 maingear bailing out of a botched god-knows-what. The constant stress on the servos has worn about 1mm of slop into my 8717's. Not to mention the crashes that I wasn't quick enough to avoid (one on the 600, one on the 500).

Casey's flying is as enjoyable as anything I've ever seen in person or on video. And he doesn't need a monster to do it. His style is much more about finess than force. His most common advice to me is "slow down". Try it some time! It ain't easy! Speed and power can and often do mask poor technique.
