Some Wickedness for your HK-450 Heli - Wicked 4000Kv

Ordered the Wicked 4000Kv from Don a couple of weeks ago for an EDF model plane (as an upgrade), but plans changed since the motor I originally intended to use for my HK-450 (a T-Rex clone) was way too weak (it was an E-flite BL400 3500Kv brushless outrunner). Since 4000Kv was still in range for this 450-sized heli, I decided to swap out the E-flite for the Wicked 4000Kv, which was a GREAT move.

This motor is perfect for a 450-sized heli, has LOTS of power and spins up the rotor beautifully on low timing and medium spool-up/motor start rates. Very impressed by the performance of this motor in my heli, and would recommend this motor for anyone looking to beef up their 450 for 3D performance.

Here are the specs for my particular HK-450 heli...

Motor: Wicked 4000Kv w/11T pinion
ESC: Castle Creations Phoenix 35-Amp
Servos: HXT-900 for CCPM 120, Futaba S3114 for tail servo
Gyro: G401B
Battery: LiPo 3S 2200mAh 25C/50C
