Not worth it due to short flight time, and very short pack life. Your packs will be toast in just a few flights.

This is a lot larger machine than the g550 and I am not sure you could get it to CG without adding weight with 2 x 2200mah packs.

the 550 is around the 3kg mark depending on what gear you put in it. Mines a smidge over. HCs is a smidge under i think.

Don't think the 2200 would work well in it, I was told that My 3300 mah batteries were way to light for CoG and I'd need something closer to a 5000 MAh in weight . That and like others have said the batteries would be toast after a few flights.

I am currently flying the A-40 10-L turbine motor, and thus far, is the most effecient, and powerful motor for this heli, on 6s. It is more consistant throughout the pack, and has some serious torque. I love this motor.

I have a Scorpion motor which is a 1380 KV motor, that I will be testing next week. Will let you know what the outcome is.

As far as the hacker. Super hard 3-d, and big flying using all the pitch, The Hacker runs about 100 degrees, and the batteries get no hotter than 115. Usually around 100. This is a serious set up thus far.

You will kill a 2200 pack in short order on a z20a powered G550 which is a bit lighter than the Outrage 550 numbers I've seen. Even keeping the flights around 3 minutes will draw too much from such small capacity packs. You could hover, but thats about it.

My G550 is 4.7lbs auw with 6s 3700.

What's the tooth count on the O550?

Also weight on it looks similar to the Logo500 and I can tell you that 6S 5000 packs on this size machine absolutely rips. I think Outrage is making the right move by going into this size electric.

using hv 85, and phoenix 125. I'm also using the new outrage 6s 6000mah packs too. I'm getting 6 1/2 to 7 minutes with this setup turning around 2150 headspeed. The motor temps are way cool around 110 degrees and pack is close to the same.


I want to get alot more flights on this setup to get a real "set in stone " opinion. As of now I'm very happy with this setup...
