+1 on the Eflite H450. Loads of power/torque. I'm using the stock ESC and have had zero problems with it.

Are Savoxx motors any good on the 450x?

motor Scorpion 2221-8
ESC: Scorpion 45

I have the Scorpion combo in 1 of my heli's and a Viper 450 motor with YEP in the other. Best to me is the Scorpion however the lower costing Viper & YEP performs quite well.

Just a word of caution on the YEP 45A - mine won't recognize my batteries as 3S (it thinks they are 4S) unless I undercharge them (4.18V/cell).

Maybe check your setup via the progam card. Sounds like you have selected life instead of lipo.

Cheers,

You asked for the best so...

Scorpion 2221-2010
CC Ice Lite 50/Edge
MKS DS92A+/DS95i combo + SBEC (someone threw in servos - these are the best)

Rock solid and very powerful. You won't get sick of your 450 anytime soon!

+1 on the servos

I am only using the D95i tail servo but it is definitely an excellent servo the best of the best.

+1 on this setup, mine is the same except I use the H450 motor. I don't see myself needing anything different on it, probably ever.

Eflite H450/14t pinion
Lynx Slant gear
CC Edge Lite 50
MKS DS92A+/DS95i combo + Gyphon Polaris 10A BEC

That is the correct motor. I can't help with the pinions, I run a lynx slant. FWIW, I think it is worth every penny of the additional $25 or so to get the lynx slant main gear and pinion while you do this upgrade. It will blow your mind how much more smooth and how much better the heli sounds. Not to mention how much more durable they are. Oh and with zero wobble like the stockers. It is just a WAY better part than the stocker. Now is the time. Pull the trigger! Only buy pinions once!

Pinion to go with the H450:

I going to stick to regular pinion as I only fly my 450 on the weekends and wish to save extra $ for spare parts. Can anyone share information on the pinion they used on Eflite H450? My 450 is grounded until new motor/pinion.
