Trex 500-700 most powerful setup
Hi everyone, I'm looking to see what can be or is the most powerful setup for a Trex 500 and 700 E. I know flight times will be reduced for such power but for just the fun of having one hell of a powerful machine, I'm curious what there is as for motor, esc, servos etc. thanks everyone.
If I can get my hands on a motor for the 700e that Tim Jones used in his beast that would be cool.

Ive been using the castle vertigo for a few years now and have never had an issue with lipos. I would say it is a strong motor just gear it to the head speed you would like to run.

Not the most powerful or the most efficient, but the Scorpion 4525 is a great 700 motor series. Some of the most powerful motors are too heavy to make it worth the extra torque, especially some of these crazy power motors that weigh twice as much as an average motor for that size of heli. Everyone has preferences for power setups and it is usually heavily influenced by your flying style so I am not saying it will or won't work for you. I have gone through a ton of motors of all different sizes and picking "the most powerful one that fits" is usually not the one that stays in my helis. Just a suggestion, take it with a grain of salt.

Power is not just about the motor. It's also about gearing, governor and most importantly feeding the motor!

Use the highest capacity packs that will fit in your heli, i.e. 3500mah in your 500 and 6000mah in your 700. Use packs with the largest guage cable and use big connectors that are properly soldered!

Next simply use a good ESC with good governor, i.e. Castle, Kontronik or YGE and over gear it although Align tend to do a good job of over gearing their helis anyway.
60% of the time, it works every time!
