Motor Sugestions for a Trex 600

Hi there everyone,

Ive been flying fixed wing for many years, but have started an interest in heli's,...I have a Trex 600E pro, that was runbning a 6s system that I want to convert back to 12s, The problem here is that the align distributor cannot supply me with the stock motor,..Could anybody suggest a suitable replacement motor? I would like a slightly better/more powerfull motor if i can so that i can grow into it, I have purchased a Hawk 120amp speed controller to go with it,..and a upgrade kit for this heli but have no motor... Im sure there is a suitable motor out there that i can replace the original one with...

The standard Align 600MX 510Kv motor is readily available from any decent Align vendor so that is still a choice.

If you go for a different motor you need to watch the diameter because larger motors will rub on the servos. KDE actually make a motor specially for the 600 Pro, that's the KDE 600XF-530Kv which is a drop in replacement and by all accounts offers great performance.

The other option is to buy the Align 'Performance Booster' kit. This includes different motor mount, main and pinion gears, frame stiffener and heavy duty feathering shaft. The kit is designd to allow the larger Align 750MX motor to be used but it also opens up the choice of a range of other larger motors. I've used the Performance Booster kit and fitted a Scorpion HKIII-4035-530Kv which performs great.
