if this is a X-Era or X-Nova motor, it will be plenty of power for 6S on 600mm.

Other motors will work just fine your flying style, but not as powerful IMHO

Hope this helps

re motor 500se
Thanks Scott, I have an Xera but if it is not any improvement on the mikado scorpion is it worth changing and what pinion would be best it has a 13tooth now.

As Scott said, and your 6s pack might even be a little 'happier' too, (not
quite the stress on it).....

Since you are not a 3D'r, have you ever tried 5s on your current setup?
Mine was 1100kv w. 14t and 5s was a very nice, relaxing H/S and still plenty capable w. the aeros.. and flight time was about the same or a bit
more.

BTW, what is making you want to change the motor out?

Trust me ... go with the X-Era 4020-1000kv,it has a 92% efficiency rating and runs super chilly willy, you will be very please. I'm assuming you are using a 13T with Mod .7 using a Kontronik ESC (in MODE 4), this is your HS

Throttle 55%: 1564
Throttle 60%: 1646
Throttle 63%: 1695
Throttle 67%: 1760
Throttle 70%: 1808
Throttle 73%: 1857
Throttle 76%: 1906
Throttle 80%: 1971

Your HS will be kinda low but maybe good for your flying style. at that HS, you will get good flight times and it will be whisper quiet .. sound like a hair dryer flying around. LOL

Go up to 14T if you more HS. PM me if you need one, I can check for you. if using any other ESC, your HS would be lower and not govern as well.

* I suggest flying around 60% ~ 75% if using kontronik with X Era
** no KSA Mode Needed, get more kick to it when you need it.

I'm using a X Era 4020-1000kv (same motor) with a Kontronik Jive 100LV with 600mm, here is my HS

Throttle 55%: 2046 <-- Normal
Throttle 60%: 2153
Throttle 63%: 2216
Throttle 67%: 2302 <-- ID 1
Throttle 73%: 2429
Throttle 76%: 2493
Throttle 80%: 2578 <-- ID 2

I run flat curves for all my flight modes. This lets me warm up,stretch my legs and than go ballistic on the fly with Special K ESC!
(yes i know Logo 500SE are not rated for 2578 HS but it's been OK for me)

BTW
gologo's got some nice 500SE parts, you should pick them up!

500 se
Hi Scott, thank you for the very detailed info yes it is on mod 7 and I am using the jive 100 lv, the scorpion has a 5mm shaft and the Xera has 6mm so I will need to get a new pinion also is the motor mount the same bolt distance for the Xera .

Do you use a pinion support.

Gary.

I can offer you:

6mm to 5mm shaft NIP x 1
- it will stick out a little from the top 5mm but will work
- you will need to put some flat spot on it
25mm motor plate x 1

PM if you are interested

I don't use counter bearing ever, I see no need.
