What you have to bear in mind is a Raptor 30 was a 550 nitro machine with a motor that produced about 1.2HP and that model used to do alright. The 4020-1100 motor produces around 2.5HP in a model that is lighter. I don't think for most people a motor producing nearly 3HP is required.

But you are correct as when I got my Logo 500 3D it came as a combo with 550 blades, 4025-1100 scorpion motor and Kontronik 100LV esc
I think the thing you are missing is the 5S part . (Scorpion 4020-1390k, 5S 5000mah) . Yes it will work fine with 550s but it will start making some pretty high amp numbers if flown hard with larger blades.

You are correct I did miss the 5S part.

If it is not out of the question to get a 1100Kv motor and run 6S it will lower the current draw a bit for the same power output as the 5S setup is producing which ultimately is kinder to the packs.

Thanks, I'll probably upgrade to a 6S setup eventually. For now, I'm really rusty and the 5S is working okay.
