ahhh ok. I know the CC 160 would do great, Im just trying to save some money where I can without sacrificing quality at the same time. Also its a 180HV so the more power the better and its only 200$. If I got a new motor, what would be a good option for the long run besides the 700mx. In other words, what motor are 3D guys using for a stretched rush?

I just reread your original post and I have to apolagize to you and Dave. I see that you mentioned 730mm. I just saw stretch and assumed 750 and up.

Still the 700mx will be pushed even with the 730's. Adding a bigger esc doesn't help if the motor is not up to the task.

Many people use hk45 scorpion motors from 450 to 520 kv. Some have used an Align 750 mx. I heard that it was the most powerful but can work well at moderate 3d flight.

Also your options include the KDE XF line of motors. the 395kv would work well for 750mm blades and the 455kv would work well i think for the 730mm blades. I would get the 505kv for 700mm.

I myself have the Scorpion 4525-520 ultimate and it is a beast of a motor.

Alright, so I have a funny question.. I did tell you guys that my rush was stretched, but now that Im looking at how close my 730mm blades are to my tail blades.. I think the previous owner ( the one who told me he stretched it ) just threw 730mm blades on it without really stretching it officially.. Which would be great for me because I could keep the 700mx motor and my ESC. So my question is, how can I check if my rush is stretched and be 100% sure. The previous owner won't return any calls or txt so I can't chat with him.. If it is not, which I don't think it is, I will put smaller blades on it asap. Thanks guys.

Is the boom aluminum painted or carbon fiber wrapped aluminum? Carbon fiber is stretched.

If it is truly stretched then main blades will not even come close to being over top of the tail blades untill you get to about 785mm blades. On a non stretch about 715's are just at the edge of the tail rotor. If you have 730's on a stock boom then you blades will pass over the tail rotor a little.

+1 to Michael's post. There is a small chance if your boom is CF wrapped that it is a boom for the 700 size, but it's VERY small.

Thanks Scott for the addition. I forgot that there is a 700 CF wrapped boom too.

Just do the visual check that I mentioned and that will tell you. Sounds like you have the 700 boom.

In another thread someone asked for a length between boom block and tail case. 691mm if I remember correctly. Stretch boom would be 791mm then.

Gotcha, well after checking you all where right, it is not stretched and the boom is aluminum not CF. Got my RJX servos installed today now all I need is an ESC and shorter blades! Thanks for all the help fellows!

Hey guys I am picking up a Rush 700 in a couple weeks so I have been reading through your setups. I have noticed a lot of people running the beastx. Is there a reason the beast works better in this heli or is it just preference. I have used a microbeast before and I was not impressed with it's tail holding capacity in fast backwards flight. I have tried it on both a 450 and the 7200 on a 500. I am currently running a mini vbar. Considering a ikon though for this heli. Has anyone noticed a reason on the rush to run one or another?

When I first built my Rush, I used an AR7200BX, then when the Vortex came out, I jumped at it and haven't looked back. I have no experience on iKon's. My new 750 Evolution will have a Vortex in it as well.

One of the things with BeastX based units is the tail precomp. If you do not use the software, you may find yourself limited while trying to fine tune the tail.

The bottom line on FBL units is this: Use the one you are most familiar with. That way, you get through the little things that nag you much quicker than learning a new system. The Rush will perform well on any FBL system.

Thanks Scott!

Nobody in my area flies Alees so I am sure you will see me posting many questions here when I get it! Pretty excited to get my first Rush!

Nice work on the vids Scott I watched them a few times today
