I see Steve all over this thread and appreciate his help for everyone. He got my vote! Standoffs are ordered.

Motrolfly 4330 / 3DHS 74" Edge 540

This is my first 3D setup with electric. All the rest I have are gassers up to 42%. I have the Motrolfly 4330-400kv, ZTW Gecko 125A ESC and 6S-5000 mAh pack. I'm looking at Falcon 20x10e wood prop. Can you guys tell me if I'm OK with this configuration or on the right track? Will the prop selection be OK or should I change that?

Thanks,
Jeremy

I would go for the Xoar PJN series electric prop but I have a bias towards them as they are easier for me to get.

All else looks solid.

20x10e in Xoar? My buddies are using them on the same pack with Motrolfly 4325

Yep 20x10 if you want more speed, if you want more thrust for low and slow 20x8

I have the exact set up in mine and I fly a 19x8 xoar nothing beats it. I have tried a few other props and now just keep them as spares that never get used because if I happen to ding my xoar 19x8 I order another

I run a 20x10 on my 4330-400. A 19x8 would be a lot less speed and power. Flight time would be higher due to the lower amp draw. I can't remember if it is the 20x10 PJN on there or the Mejzlik 20x10EL.

I sometimes run a 19x8 on my 4325-425.

I tried to buy that Falcon, but they were out of stock at the time.

For people running 4330s, where did you batteries end up? With my 12s setup I had to put them all the way to the firewall to get CG. I used Steve's standoffs and put the ESC in the tunnel, so maybe having that on the e-box makes a difference. This is with revo 435 blend 3700s. I wanted to try 3200s, but it just won't CG with them.

There is very little difference in weight between the stand-offs and e-box. If running a BEC try mounting that at the front of the pipe tunnel also, that is where I mounted both my ESC and BEC...

I have the 4330-216 with Castle ICE2-80HV attached to the e-box. I use the 3200mah 435 revoblends and my packs are maybe 1/2" to 1" from the firewall for a neutral balance. When I used regular 3300mah packs, the batter was 1.5" further back than where it is with the 435s. I think having the ESC on the e-box makes a big difference vs. having it in the tunnel.
