Happy new year guys...!!

I was thinking about going electric with my 600.
In order to have the needed power for my flying style I was thinking about this motor:

http://www.helidirect.com/scorpion-...600-p-21769.hdx

and I was wondering...wich ESC will fit the best (concidering the price)....

I am going to use 10S Lipo, so...what will B the best choose?
120A?
160A?

Thx...

with that motor on 10s you would need like a 17t pinion to get a decent 2000 rpm on the head.

my second question are you saving money and how much by not going straight to 12s?

if you are going to use the 550 motor i recommend you go 12s otherwise go with the 4025-740 for a 10s setup with a 14 or 15t pinion to achieve a good head speed.

for either setup the ice 80hv esc should be pleanty.

my 600e on 12s averages 20 amps in a hover and peaks to about 80-100 in a good punch out. that running a 4025-630 with 14t pinion.

im going to be putting a larger motor in it soon so it may change very soon.

Who cares... its just money...

100 or 120 HV ESC at the max. 160 would be extreme overkill and nothing but added weight.

My T-Rex 600E on 10S runs a Castle HV 85 for the past 3 years with no issues. Doesn't even get warm.

Hi...

I'm not intand 2 use 12s for two reasons:
1) This is 600 we'r talking about, I'm afraid It won't have the
needed space

2)The electricity for 12S is much more expansive.

I'v taken a look on the motor U recomended and it has less power
than what I have posted here....and what pinion I'll need with this one?

Thx aloot

that for the motor.

http://www.helidirect.com/rhino-gea...2pcs-p-9042.hdx

that pinion

http://www.helidirect.com/castle-cr...max-p-16592.hdx

that esc

and you will want 3000-3500mah 5s x2 packs of at least 35c i'd imagine would be within the weight range.

with that pinion you should be able to set rpm in castle link to 2000 and have it bounce off of 100% which castlelink may tell you to adjust gearing but ignore it you want the governor to bounce off of 100% because the esc runs most efficiently at wide open.

Who cares... its just money...
