1400 is the best for all out unboggable power, but higher amp spikes and uses mah quicker overall. 1600 is a very nice balance of hard to bog and efficiency. From what i understand, if you run the 1400 and have good collective managment, you won't use any more juice than the 1600 (assuming the same headspeed).

I personally have the 1600 and its nearly unboggable on good 6S 25C cells and 13T pinion governed to 2600 rpm.

I also purchased the 1600kv and a 13t mod 0.6 pinion. Unfortunately, I have not yet flown it due to the cold weather. It will be interesting to see the difference in power and to review the recorded flight data from my Castle Ice ESC.

+1 on 1600kv and 14 tooth pinion. Over 800 flights with this set-up and runs great for me.

Thanks guys for your help

Are you running the stock speed control or do you need to upgrade?

I basically haven't had the best luck with the older Align ESC's.. So I sold mine on Ebay and purchased a Castle Creations Ice 100. The weight and size are identical to the 75 Ice. So far I love the unit and have purchased a 50 Ice for my Trex 450 Pro. I plan on trying the stock Align Motor and ESC in the Pro first with a TP 3S 45C battery and then most likely move to 4S with a Scorpion Motor and the 50 Ice ESC if I don't like the 3S performance or flight time. My older Trex 450 has always been on 4S.

I am flying my 250SE on the Align ESC.. So far so Good.

i can't recall the head speed from the last time i checked it but it is pretty high. it climbs like a rocket. very twitchy. i like it. esc is flightpower 60amp.

with a turnigy 6s 3000 30-40c pack you can go 5 minutes no problem.

the turnigy packs are great btw.

I have my 500 with the stock motor (500L) but I run it with the CC ICE 75 ESC/BEC in Gov mode with 14T pinion and the heli screams.

I have my Idle Up 2 at 2661 rpm and with the Data Loging through Castle Link I get 100% power, pushing 2800 rpm. What a difference The ESC with the 14T pinion and 35C or 45C batteries makes aewsome power.

At the precipice, we change!
