What motor?
What motor/ ESC combo are you guys running? Seems like several good options out there.

If you don't mind, please post pinion, head speed, and governor choice as well.

Thanks!

Motor I suggest Quantum 4020-1200kv
- don't rub canopy
- shaft perfect length
- good power
- a bit on the heavy side but good to get you going

X-Nova 4020-1000kv
KDE 500XF-1200kv
Pyro 600-1200kv
- have to trim canopy
- the pyro is the lightest with plenty of power (IMHO)

ESC
- Hobby Wing 100LV v3
- excellent GOV
- There are 2 options but either works well
- BEC is good
- set voltage to 5.2v

If you don't mind, please post pinion, head speed, and governor choice as well.

The answer to this varies since it depends on ESC & Motor Combo

I would suggest:
- ELF GOV on Hobby Wing 100A v3
- 18T (stock motor pulley)
- Quantum 4020-1200kv

This is your HS
Throttle 60%: 2282
Throttle 65%: 2353
Throttle 70%: 2425
Throttle 75%: 2496 <-- my suggestion
Throttle 80%: 2567
Throttle 85%: 2639
Throttle 90%: 2710
Throttle 95%: 2781

- percentages represent flat curves on your TX
- My Goblin 500 on 523mm flies excellent @ 2,250 HS
- Start at 75% and go or down to your flying style

Thanks for that!

I should have mentioned it in the original post... I have a full size vbar Blueline and YGE 90lv on hand that intend to use. I've always used mr. Mel's head speed calculator and its work well so far.

Any input on scorpion motors?

Thanks again,

Lou

The Throttle Curve was based on your YGE on GOV Store with a learning voltage @ 4.0

- I personally use the YGE internal GOV
- V bar external Gov with YGE is aggressive

- scorpion motor would work, you will have to cut a sunroof for clearance
- all motors now-a-days will make plenty of power
