Default stock motor specs

Hi,

Anyone know what the stock motor timing is, i am running a Scorpion Commander 2 55A esc, i think its getting a touch hot 55-60 degrees and was told to check the timing of the motor.
Options for ESC are Auto, 5,10,20,30,40 degrees. It is on auto at the moment but thought i might set it to match the motor ......checked belt, pinion gear and all that would cause binding but all is fine.
Otherwise what sort of temps are you getting .......

thanks
Steve

I use a Turnigy Sentry 40 amp ESC and I have my timing set to { Low} Works great. Had it at mid too worked great. Just stay away from high. It should get warm to touch to maybe very warm! Not Hot. after 6 min flight . Check your Pinion gear mesh so you gear rocks back and forth { slack } Do you know how to do the Paper trick?

yep, done the paper trick, set belt tension, checked all for binding tightness
guess i will test each setting and choose the best one even though EC has an AUTO option

Default Hot motor ??

60 degrees ??? what Celsius ? If so You better start off with the lowest timming you have. And change your throttle and pitch curves.
