You could go to the 4330-400 and the same prop, amps may breach 100 so a 120 amp would be needed.

5320 would be too much I think.

Don't do it... the 4330-435 is awesome. I've had them on two different slicks and love that motor...it will make you want one! I have mine turning an 18x10 and absolutely love all the speed it gives me on my Slick.

Anyone else running the 5320-300 on 8S? I'm going to be building my Slick and wondering what props to go with. (I plan to try 19x8 and 19x10)

Will the rudder servo still be mounted in the front with the bigger motor or should I plan to move it to the tail? I have the lighter X mount so I think the weight is about the same as the 4330.

Cool. I like that better than pull pull. What's the black thing your pack it plugged into?

I was going to ask what people are using for 8s. I saw some connectors from MPI that were two Deans in and one Deans out that looked like it would work. Very compact.

Those are designed for 2X2S packs, I don't know if I would trust them for 3S or 4S, especially if they are larger packs, and you are drawing much amperage. The only way I would even think of using one is to first take the heat shrink covering off and see what they used to join them. I would bet it is nothing larger than 14 gauge wire. MPI MAXX also makes a series wiring harness, but again, they use 14 gauge wire, so, I just make my own using a minimum or 10 gauge wire. The one in the picture was made for a small EDF, so is only 12 gauge wire...but you get the picture I'm sure...
(and yes, each individual wire has has the appropriate black or red heat shrink over it.. )

I called Max products and they said the deans connectors are welded together. They use a buss bar to connect the tabs that aren't touching. He said its rated to as many amps as the deans can handle. The 2S is for two packs not cells. They also make one for 3S or three packs.

I'd like to see inside but it sounds better than wires to me.
