OK, I'm trying to decide on a suitable motor and I'm looking seriously at the Quantum 4530-450 or 500, KDE XF700-495, or Scorpion 4525/30-450 or 500. I'm running the CC ICE2 160HV w/ 5000mAh 45C packs. I also plan on using the CC governor. Starting as an MD7 but might go 800 next season.

Will this motor/ESC combo work comfortably on the Epic w/ say a 13T pinion? I'd like to use the CC governor to govern about ~2050rpm. Will flight times be OK w/ the Pulse 5000MAh 45C packs? Any tips on setting up the gov on a CC ESC w/ this motor?

Thanks for the time!

One of my md7 has quantum 4530-500 with a castle 160 ice2 in it. Gov set to 2050 and 2150 with stock pinion. While it works great for idle 2 idle one the esc is overly aggressive and makes the tail kick a little in hard stops and tic tocs. The motor is fine on 13 t. My other epic has a yep 120hv in it on vbar gov and both idle 1 and 2 are flawless. Probably need to work on the castle more but ill probably just put in a yep for it too. 500 KV seems the way to go. My second one has an xera 4530-500 in it also.
