Bear with me, I'm second-guessing myself here and would appreciate input:

I have the MJ2 with Pletti 370/40 motor, Power Jazz ESC, 12T pinion and 12S TP batteries.

According to old posts I have read, I found this equation to determine headspeed:

510 kv x 44.4 v = 22644 motor rpm

reduction 12T of 13.56 = 1670 max head speed, x 0.8 = 1336

Helicopter seems to run smoothest at head speed of 1350-1400.

Is this in fact the correct equation to use?

how many teeth are on the main gear?

hs=load voltage(about 3.5v a cell)x kv x pinion /main gear

you sure about that? it must be wrong because that would put your headspeed at 4k

I'm sure - I recounted and main gear has 67T.

In the equation I was using, I had the reduction that Gerd of Minicopter identified for the 12T pinion as being 13.56.

dude 67/12 don't equal 13....
67/12 =5.6 you either need a much smaller pinion or a lower kv motor.

Just go here
http://www.readyheli.com/Online_Hea...ulator_s/81.htm

Avg RPM you will see with 100% throttle and no governor: 3776 with current set-up

if you use an 8S lipo Avg RPM you will see with 100% throttle and no governor: 2517

it seems to me you picked a motor for a 6S power system average HS would be 1888 with that gear ratio

you will want a motor with a KV rating between 250-300KV for that size

I've copied Gerd's post from earlier (August 2007) here:

"Reductions are then 1:12.52 with 13 tooth pinion and 1:13.56 with 12 tooth pinion.
Motor speed is 510x35=18000 rpm (about)
Recommended rotor speed is then 1450 x 0.85 = 1230 rpm for 13 tooth pinion and 1320 x 0.85 = 1120 rpm for 12 tooth pinion.
The factor 0.8, you know probably, is the factor you need as reserve for the governor mode of the esc. When your flight style is more powerful (3D) you should better use the factor 0.75, if you fly very gently like Maxi-Jokers normally fly, you can use the factor 0.85.
For 12s the recommended speeds with 0.85 are 1470(13T) and 1340rpm(12T)."

This is the link for the thread: http://www.runryder.com/t366448p1/

The volts here are for the 10S, it would be 42 for the 12S.

Therefore, using this equation, 510x42= 21420/13.56 = 1580 x 0.8 = 1264.

Is there something else I'm missing here?

510x42= 21420/13.56 = 1580 x 0.8 = 1264
I believe it's Motor KV X Volts @80% / gear ratio = HS
you are putting the efficency after the HS it is 80% of motor not 80% of HS

Also it should be calculated using nominal voltage which I believe is 3.7 per cell

also your gear ratio is incorrect 67/12= 5.58

So it should read 510KV X 37V =18,870rpm -20%= 15096 rpm /5.58 =2,705.35 HS

Blademaster,

I went to the site you recommended, and when I input the "final gear ratio" of 13.56, I come out with very different numbers than you are talking about. (The MJ2 has 4 gears, 12, 34, 14, and 67T).

ahh there is some confusion going on with the final gear ratio

what is your final ratio if it is 13.56 which is rather high ?

510KV X 37V =18,870rpm -20%= 15096rpm / 13.56 gives you a head speed of 1113.27 rpm

so if you're certain about the final ratio you need a higher KV motor

let's see
1100kv X 37= 40,700 rpm - 20%= 32560 rpm / 13.56 gives a HS of 2401

trying the same formula
you would need about an 850KV motor

The ratio of 13.56 was provided by the manufacturer of the helicopter - but I got the same value through your link by clicking on "gear ratio calculator" and inputting those numbers - 12, 34, 14 and 67.

Secondly, the batteries are 12 cell, not 10, which will have an impact on your calculation.

These are the results I obtained by inputting these numbers into the calculator link:
Voltage for this calculation (avg):3,33/cell with a total of 39,96
Nominal voltage: Spoolup RPM 100% throttle no governor (44,4v): 1670
Avg RPM you will see with 100% throttle and no governor: 1475
Max normal bogging applied you will see RPM at: 1202
From these values, it would appear that the 1400 headspeed I'm running is right where it should be - I think.

right on the numbers are confirmed
sorry don't know why I did 10S instead of 12

1400HS is a little low is this for a scale heli ?
what size ?

Thank you BladeMaster and Wingman for your comments and assistance.

Noobs,

Yes, I am using 800 blades, and yes my throttle is a bit low, at 75%. However, the motor is not running hot to touch after a flight, just warm. The batteries are quite warm at the end of the flight. Would the throttle level have something to do with this?

Will check out info on the Xera. What is its weight?

What is your throttle percentage with your set-up?
