Default What would happen? 14T 6S/500 ESP

Just wondering what would happen if I used a 14T pinion on a stock 500ESP running 6S 25C Outrage? 430/72 CY / 7703D/DS520 / DS510's

What are the issues? Will this benefit me? I have been running 13T with great power.

I bought a 500 second-hand, and thought it was absolutely manic, with very short flights, about 4 minutes hovering. This is using 6s 2500 20c. When I checked, it had a 15t pinion.

Course, I did buy it off a 3D maniac.

I've changed to a 12t, cos I'm a newbie just learning, but we've now had 2 weeks of high winds, so I can't tell you how it is now.
