hi.. i just ordered a align 700mx 530 kv motor for the x50e.. im running the 600mx 510kv on it now and the gears handle it no problem.. heli should be sick with the 700mx..

Audio131 - What batteries are you using?

right now im using 2 pulse 45c 6s 3300mah packs,, seem pretty good.... heli is still flying pretty awesome.

How strong are the TT gears? Can it handle a lot of reversal abuse?

I was going to try to run a 6S setup with an Align 600MX 1220kv motor and 100amp Castle that I already had. That should have put my headspeed around 2700 which from what I read is way too high. What head speed is good for this heli?

2400-2450 really makes it pop..if u keep it light it will pop with less head speed than that... 2700 is a bit too high.. try another pinion size.. word of caution.. only x50e pinion fit in this heli...

I'm a bit of an oddball and run far lower rpms than most as I like long flight times with adequate power for smooth "freestyle" (90's era 3D), not ballistic power. The last we tached it my two flight modes were 18100 and 2000. 10S/3800 packs take 2500~2600 each on recharge after 6 minutes, so I should reset timer to 7.5 or so, and 8~8.5 with the 4350's. The damping was designed for the more common higher rpms, so it's a bit stiff in this range, but OK. Don't know how much lower you could go before you'd get nodding, and of course blades have an affect on that too.
