How do I know if I can use a 80 HV over a 120 HV?

What size helicopter, motor, pinion and number of cells are you going to run? All of these make a difference and some other items too.

If you are talking about a Castle, for what you are describing I would run a Castle 160 HV. Kontronic ESC I think can be one smaller (so 120HV)

I currently use the kontronik 120, and it comes inn feeling like it's hardly being used. Slightly warm to the touch is all.

I need atleast 2 more esc's. I don't wanna spend just over 1000.00 dollars on 120's if I don't need them.

Any logging on the Kontronic where you can download a typical run and review the draw? If not, your 120 sounds good, would be better to go with what is known that to get an under-rated one, suffer a fire, and lose way more than what you saved by going to the cheaper one

What motor Brian?

I flew two seasons of Class III with a Jive80HV. If you are running a Pyro 700, Scorpion 4035 series, 40 mm X-Era, or standard Align motor, you will have no issue with an 80HV for your specified needs.

What Ben said. But even with a bigger 750-800 size motor it still comes down to gearing and head speed. What is a typical HS for the big air stuff?

60% of the time, it works every time!

Currently I'm using the 4530-450kv in the Vibe E12 with the kontronik heli jive 120. This set up works well, and I see no reason to change this set up.

Adding my Sylphide into the line up, it sounds like Like I could use the Pyro 700 series motor with the Jive 80hv?

I also have a 4525-520 that needs to be used. So I might as well use this motor and buy the heli jive 120hv as well. Realistically buying the pyro 700 series and the jive 80 would be to expensive.

Thanks for the help.

Brian

Yeah with a 4525 you will want more than an 80. If you lean on the sticks, that motor pulls current pretty hard even with pretty typical gearing.
