Running the 17t will give you a higher headspeed but at the cost of flight time.

Unless you're a stick banger stick with the 16t.

Typo...but if you're using AR6000/6100/6110 you should reconsider that decision.

17t is ok with the stock blades but will cut the flight time a little. Don’t use 17t if you go to longer blades or you may blow the ESC but it’s ok with the stock 520mm blades.

Yikes. Please do not use a parkflyer receiver for your 550!
