jagsta: that's what you need, similar to RS's setup. You get the best of both worlds. High HS, and very good flight time. Nice

Looks like you've ironed out the ESC issues.

Hey CG, do you have trouble seeing that against the background of dark green foliage. Camo fuse seems like a crazy idea to me. (probably just my old eyes)

Yeah this is what i'm thinking, plus, I can run either 3s or 4s to get a low (sport/hovering) headspeed or a higher one for 3d with the same pinion on the motor.

Has anyone tried the turnigy 2215 on 4s? It says it supports it on HK. The 1800mAh packs are a little bit more expensive than the 2200 3s but for better power, lower current (and therefore temp) it seems worth it.

I should get around 2600 on 3s, 3400 on 4s with an 11T on that motor I think.

i would not run a 3500+ kv motor on 4S. I do it on a pusher jet and it sounds like it will fall apart. But on the heli? Run the numbers thru the calculator..

1800ma 4S 11t 3500kv = 3880 rpm. I wouldn't. It's really easy to switch motors.. get one that's 2700 kv, use velcro instead of zip ties and leave a pinion on each motor. swap it out in 5 minutes.

It looks like a copy of an older version of a Hyperion ESC. Watch out! It has a limited speed. The maximum speed is not enough for an 450 heli. Only if your a beginner and you want a headspeed of 2600 RPM, it will be usable.

short review about this servo as a cyclic servo?

also it mentions that i can choose to have metal gears as oppossed to carbon poly? which one is the best out of the two?

many thanks
I'm using a HP-DS09GMD as a tail servo on my GAUI Hurricane 200. In combination with a Logictech LTG 2100T gyro, it is the best servo ever.
I don't know how it will be as a cyclic servo on a 450. It is quite expensive and this forum is about going cheap. Way not HTX900 or MD933.

hugo: I'm planning to use it on my smaller birds(cyclics+tail).

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1120372

To hold the motor wires against the side of the frame so they aren't flopping around in flight.

He was saying use velcro instead of zip ties so you don't have to cut the zip ties and put new ones on every time you change out the motor.

Get it now?
