Ok so my winter project would be to convert my ballistic to a 14 s setup.

It is coming from the acquisition of an Xxtreme. I realized how easy it is and now that I have the 14s charging setup, charging is not an issue. I am not looking for insane power but the 14s is soo torquy and everything runs soooo cool!

So basically the setup would be:
- ballistic...
- radix 710
- scorpion 4525 520kv
- VBar governor
- YGE 160 XXTREME edition (same as logo 800)
- Nanotech 4000mah 6s X 2 +2s

I do not know yet for the pinion 12 or 13 teeth, but as the YGE has active free wheeling, I will see!

If some of you are intested in the mod or if you have some input, please let me know, I will put some update then!

Is it me or this time the ground was higher than last time??

That sounds like a fun project....

I also run the 4525-520 motor but on 12S lipos and it's has very high rpm with 100% throttle. A little too fast for my comfort.

I'm thinking the 520 might be too hot for a 14S setup.

Have you used this combo before? If so, what head speed did you run?

Keep up your rotor speed !

13 tooth math:

Result for calculation:
Estimated lowest voltage during flight: 48,72
Lowest RPM (due to voltage and efficiency) : 2280

For + performance, keep req. RPM below: 2360
For target performance, keep req. RPM below: 2454
For - performance, keep req. RPM below: 2525

12 tooth math:

Result for calculation:
Estimated lowest voltage during flight: 48,72
Lowest RPM (due to voltage and efficiency) : 2104

For + performance, keep req. RPM below: 2178
For target performance, keep req. RPM below: 2265
For - performance, keep req. RPM below: 2330

11 tooth math: (if helical you will have to get the Align 11T helical pinion gear. It's the only helical 11 tooth that I know of.)

Result for calculation:
Estimated lowest voltage during flight: 48,72
Lowest RPM (due to voltage and efficiency) : 2104

For + performance, keep req. RPM below: 2178
For target performance, keep req. RPM below: 2265
For - performance, keep req. RPM below: 2330

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

Have you tried running 14s on the Scorpion 4525 520kv? This is a 12s motor.

That motor along with most stock scorpions will work on 14 and even 16s stock.. Scorpion told me the problem is exceeding the bearing rpm rating over voltage.. I am running a 330kv on 16s soon to be rewound to 430kv

4525 14s has been covered many times on different posts and its fine. Just observe the max 24,000rpm limit.

I had a 14s Ballistic with Pyro 700/450 straight cut gear and it was brilliant. I used 2600lipos and it came in at 9.9lbs rtf.due to the power/weight it would yield 4:30 mins of 3d flight. I modded the sliding tray carriers (removed some off the font) to allow 1 6s pack mounted on top and a 6&2 underneath all the way forwards to achieve c of g.

Best all round 90 elec ive owned and that's most. Only sold as my ENV 120 turned out great and flies longer.
