View Full Version : Head speed
10-16-2010, 02:20 PM
I'm using the 16t pinion and 100% flat throttle curve and I think the head speed is around 2600rpm. I was just wondering what head speed other people were getting?

I'm planning on using a good old Castle Cremations Ice 100A. According to the head speed calc I need a 18 or 19T to get 2600 gov'd. Any opinions on how well this will work?

16t at 100% is probably over 2700.
I run mine at 88% in idle up 1 and 91 in 2 for later in the flight.
