motor and flight time for shogun?

I am going to buy a shogun and I have a Phoenix 10 speed control and a kokum 1600 11.1 pack. What brushless motor should I get and what sort of flight time will I get?

I would not recomend using a Phoenix 10. You may end up taxing the controller to its amp limit.

If your after flight time, go a Himax 2010-3200 or equivalent, I agree with brownsdog, go the Phoenix25, that way you wont be pushing your amp limit and it not that much more expensive. You can probabaly expect calm flights in the 15 minute mark if your setup is good, i.e. light. Also if your interested in longevity, alot of people go the TP2100s for added capacity.

Cheers
Will.

Eddy I have a himax 2025-3200 w/9t and use a tp2100 and get about 20mins of hover and ff. It drops to about 12-15 mins if I do fff and any hard flyin. I have a tp1320 but as of yet I have not used it on the Shogun. I also use a cc25, my amp draw is about 9 amps and just over 10 at full throttle full pitch. I would not use a cc10. Hope this helps...JP

Question for Littlebird

Littlebird, is it a 2025-3200 Himax you have or the 2025-4200? I would like to try to replicate your setup but I can't seem to find anywhere that sells the 2025-3200.

Thanks, Loren
