I got a trex 600e, the older style, and wondering if I can upgrade the esc to run on 12s.
Using a castle 100 right now, with 6s.
Can this motor run on 12s, or do I have to upgrade that to..... if yes.... what motor/esc combo for 12s ???

I'm running the scorpion 4225 610kv and the scorpion 130a opto esc together. The combo works great in a 600 and has lots of power. I've noticed that the scorpion esc keeps the scorpion motor's cooler then other esc.

I have a 4025-1100 on 6s on a Trex 550. I don't think it would work too well on 12s.

Scorpion 4525-1100 + Jive 100LV + 6s ThunderPower packs in a Trex 550 is a great combination. It's a heavy little helicopter for the size. I'm not sure what the actual weight is, but there is a lot of equipment stuffed onto a small frame. But if flies very well and has a lot of performance. What I like is that I can use a single 6s pack which is convenient.

If it does not have the third bearing block add one or you will
not keep a main gear in it. Other than that works great with a
4025-500 and Castle Ice 80. Good luck have fun It a rocket with
about 2300 hs.

Dont run a 4025 1100kv motor on 12s, they are meant for 8s max.

Best bang for your buck is going to be the Align 600MX 510kv with a 60-80HV ESC from Castle, Kontronik or YGE. Kontronik Jive 60+HV would be my choice as all the others require a seperate BEC or RX pack.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Thanks. No I won't run the 1100kv on 12s, I noticed its good to 8s.
New to the e-helis, so the advice is great to hear.
I am going to keep the 600e on 6s for now, and make it a NIGHT bird.
If in the future I make it a 12s, I will just put the 600MX, with CC80 ESC in it.
Thanks again for the help.
