Tim said that motor was prototype and heli was build around the motor's power. I dont think stock 90 size heli will handle that much power very long without parts breaking . I got to watch and see in personal at OHB and that heli made you feel sorry for the air as it cut though it.

What motor are you seeing 8-9 hp from ? Are you refer to peaks in the data logger?

The motor on "The Beast" looks like an oil filter. HUGE!

Chris, if you want a REAL motor you need a Powercroco unit that is for sale time to time, 600 euro though but its only money.

So far the most powerfull motor that you can get fairly easy is the 4525LE motor, forget specs etc nothing compares, now you lipos limit the power.

I have flown many helicopters and many 700E helicopters with various motors, inc 4035 series (all on 10 and 12S), joker LE motor, 4525LE, actro 32-3, pyro 450-510-520KV, align 700M and possibly some others.

600 euros as we say, is "real" money lol The powercroco`s look a bit backyardish, are they the real deal ? By the looks they will do all the calcs for me , and then sell me the kit, or build it for me, is that correct ? Certainly a very interesting option, to take winding to the next level, but a whole lot more learning, where the heck does it end! lol Dont supose youd have a link for the one you have in mind ?

Ive got a gold series comming next week hopefully so ill try that out, ill have to have a look at the 4525LE as well. It better not be another melter lol

As a off the shelf option, im pretty much sold on the Actro`s, but i havent had a 4525 yet ,so well see

Gernejr, yes it must of been a peak Imagine the peak from a 8/9 HP constant! The motor is a Actro 32/3 Helimax series 555 kv. Hey Arron!

You will notice the time of that peak too Thats setup

There is nothing backyard about a powercroco motor, scorpion supplies the kits, Dr Okon winds it, the only way you get it is if you know him personally or one is for sale and he donates the money to charity sometimes.

Search powercroco and look at scorpion kits customised, if you think your actro is on the same level you are very wrong.
I read a number of the german forums and have followed various threads, in time you will see what they are doing is very clever and simply the best.

Like I said tried many motors, nothing can compare to these custom units, try and you will believe.

What heli and headspeeds are you running with power you are looking for? I just pull scorpion 4035- 560 that i seen peaks on 8-9 hp @ 175amps turning 2100hs. which was more power then i needed. For myself i think contast 4 - 4.5 hp will be all i ever need on 700. How about the scorpion 5035-500kv motors @ 5300 watts that should pull peaks over 10hp.

Hi again Gernejr, im not a fan of the Scorpion motors because they run so hot, and my home town is notorious for hot weather. 100F+ is the norm through summer, and i find that the scorpion motors wont take the abuse of, the Actro say, in the hot weather. The clear insulation melts off the internal wiring, shorting out the motor. You can tell it is shorting out afterwards, in that by turning the motor by hand, you can feel it doing the same thing, as when you turn it over by hand with two of the wires touching. That and the magnets loose their.....thingo.

The best one i found was the 560, for the 4035`s, and indeed there is a guy here you may have heard of, Phil Lennert, that has a 560 on a lite 10s setup that does ok, but not what i would call brutally powerful. His setup will take the heat on 10s, but the scorpy get toasty on 12s.

Just to clarify, no direspect to anyone, specially TJ, im just fooling around, looking for the most oumf! i can get. Not because im so good and i need it , just cause its fun, and i can Still tons cheaper than dirtbikes or cars

Yea the new big scorps and Powercroco as helicraze mentions surely are up to task of taking over the big castle without issue. If you want custom contact powercroco for sure, that's about as big ballz as you can go at moment.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
