All the power ratings are all over the joint, it does not always translate into power into the head.

I would just stick the motor in and use it, i was using a 65A ESC on 10S for my logo and it was seeing over 150A spikes (not something the manufactur specs says would work) and with a big heatsink it ran fine.

Work out the average current draw for that motor (some one should have some charts from data logs)

^ yeah makes no sense to me, know one answering my other post on this subject so Il try here.

I also have a Tonic Z20A 980 kv, when I was looking into a Logo 400 I was told it would be no good unless I ran 8s, now Im reading on posts its what guys are useing in there Outrage 550`s runing 8s I think the specs are 1300 watts. It just so happens the 22t pinion I was running it on my 4s HDX500 will give me 2800 - 3000 on my Trex 500, it says max continuous amps are 40. Anyone shed any light on this donk. I dont understand why it was fine for a 4s 500 heli, fine for a 8s 500 or even 550 size heli on 8s, but no good for a 6s 500 heli.

Also I took my 500L motor apart for something to do yesterday because it was raining, I put some green loctite on the shaft where the bearing seats, put it back together and the play is completely gone, anyone done this with any success, Im thinking of throwing it back in for a try but not sure if it will just get loose again in seconds after spool up.

A motor that will run on 4S and 8S will definately work on 6S.

It's just a matter of figuring headspeed and choosing the right pinion.
I literally never use the word literally right.

I cant buy my scorpion til thursday, so I might throw in the z20 just for a test, with the 22t pinion the headspeed should be faster than my 500l with the 13t(just under 3000rpm) I maybe even try the 500l again with the loctite on the shaft, if it ever stops raining here.
