I was told you need to cut the frames to fit the scorpion motor in. If your motor is not completely dead yet, why not wait for the new align 600M motor to appear. Scorpion has never been famous for their escs. Most people just use Castle Creations. If you have $$$ to burn then Kontronik is best, they have the most reliable governor mode.

If your stock motor and esc are not working, the scorpion 4025 1100kv is for 6s but the 890kv will work as well. If you plan on going 8,10,12s then get phoenix 85 amp hv, if your sticking with 6s the Align 100 amp is well up to the job.

Cutting the frames to fit the Scorpion in is literaly a 2 minute job woth a dremel that any monkey can do (I did it) theres plenty of photos on RR of the mod, its just too small peices you have to cut of, it doesent effect the rigidity or strength of the frame, dont let that put you off getting a scorpion, it really is easy, if you dont have a dremel it may take you 5 minutes with a hack saw.

If theres nothing wrong with you stock stuff I dont see any reason to upgrade, dont beleive all the hype you read about the scorpion motors turning your heli into a rocket ship, theres no power increase from the stock motor IMO, although I do think the Scorpions will last longer due to the fact they dont get hot like the Align, they are better quality well made motors.

The new Castle Creations ICE 100 is the best esc for the T600.
