Main Gear 106T and Mod 1, motor pinion 12T.

According to my maths I should be flying at around 1400 RPM for smooth aerobatics:

450 [KV] X 40 [V] X 12 [PT] = 216000 [TPM]

216000 [TPM] / 106 [MT] = 2038 [RRPM]

Finally, setting up the ESC at 70%:

0.7 X 2038 [RRPM] = 1426 [RRPM]


KV = RPM / V
V = Volt
TPM = Teeth / Minute
PT = Pinion Teeth
MT = Main Gear Teeth
RRPM = Rotor Revolutions Per Minute

How does this setup look to you guys?

I am flying mine with a Kontronik Jive 80HV and a Kontronik 450Kv motor on an 8s lipo with an 11T pinion. It has a 5 blade head with Spin blades. The tail blades were moved to the left side of the boom.

With a throttle % of 50 I get a head speed around 1200rpm. At that speed it flies very well and can do mild aeros like stall turns and loops. In fact it is the most enjoyable heli in my fleet to fly.
