2300 - 2350 6min flights on 3000mah I put 1800 back in, so I could get 7 - 8 min flight times. Only doing FF and circuits.

Running 100% Thr on stock gearing. 2600mah packs = 4min, 3000mah packs = 4.5min (always putting back >=80%)

I am only just starting to get to the point where I have been able to make the tail let go on fast tail slides. The thing did a perfect 180 while I was half way to levelling out scared the crap outta me as the tail had always been rock solid since I put a BeastX on.

Maybe bigger tail blades would help with tail authority at lower head speeds
I do know a lot of the 600E Pro guys are facing this same problem and most use bigger tail blades to fix it.

On my old 500 ESP I was getting 5.5 min flight times running 2700 rpm using a 2650mah pack with a scorpion motor

Sent from my little tablet, spelling may be much worse than usual.

500EFL all stock getting 4 1/2 minutes putting back about 2000 in my 2600 packs running 85% throttle most of the time with some 100% (which is crazy HS, don't need it) Thinking of dropping down a tooth on the pinion.

I'm squeezing 7 mins out of a 3000 mAh cell pack (still over 80% charge). My throttle is very tame at 70% and so is my pitch curve -6, +10. Mainly short FFs and hovering. Getting more comfortable with the bird, so sport flying it is for a while.

That was the problem I was having as well. Even at 2800 it will blow if you really throw the collective around. I had to solve the problem by putting larger tail blades on as well as full size tail servo. Now the tail holds rock solid at 2800 no matter what I do to it. Unless I load the head up but to fix that just need some better batteries with higher c rating. Everybody that has an older esp that has turned it into a pro never seem to have problems with their tail, and I think its due to the higher gearing of their tail that allows them to fly the lower head speed and hold rock solid. Id be r unning flat out and I think the tail would hold fine but using the koby and leaving the 20% headroom for the gov Im stuck around 2800 headspeed. Only other option would be changing pinion but not sure the motor could handle the heavier load or not.

The Pack Size is: 150 x 43 x 44mm.

Nearly the same as the Turnigy 3300mAh 30C
