Castle Ice Lite 50
Just installed a Castle lite 50 esc on my 450 and loving it. Im curious to see what head speeds others are running on their 3S setups.

I'm running 3100 in idle up 1 and 2900 in normal on my 450 pro using the ice lite 50 and futaba cgy750...it's really smooth and locked in on the cyclic. Got just a little bit of a tail kick on hard punch outs, just need to play with the settings. I've got a new scorpion 2221-6 sitting in box that I might try someday, but It's way beyond my skill level right now...lol.R.I.P. Roman

I was running a 3100 hs, but I lowered it when I went FBL. It added so much more power and is so much quicker on the cyclic that I don't need a super high head speed. I lowered it from a 14T to a 13T pinion and love it. I think I am running 2900 now and it kicks ass. BTW, I have the same esc and make sure the metal plate is facing the outside. If you don't it will get really hot even when the motor isn't running. Also are you running it in governor mode?Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I'm running the 410m's that come in the kit for now, probably swap them out later on when they develop some slop. I'm getting the tail kick on hard punches and stops...think I need to play with the delay...R.I.P. Roman

What gyro are you using? If the tail is blowing out on punches and stops, it sounds like your gain is too low.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

Low headspeed = tail kick on punch out.
The 450 likes high high head speed if you want they tail to hold on any maneuver

Nope, using a 13T pinion. I believe idle 2 is setup for 2950. With the FBL head, I have plenty of power and cyclic is crazy fast. I haven't even put the good blades on yet either. I have the 3D Pro blades on it. I originally bought a set of 3G blades for it, but screwed them up during the setup process. I didn't see a need to keep the 14T pinion on it, so I swapped it back to the 13T pinion. The combination that I have at the moment works fantastic on my 450.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I think mine is an older version because I can't download it. Either way, it was getting pretty hot with no load on it. Once I turned it around, it was much better.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2
