5.5 to 6 isn't much of a jump. what is the plane that it's going in?...

...keep in mind though that we're very demanding on the performance of the smaller servos (HS65's, HS85's, etc), and 6v will boost torque and speed... and an external BEC provides a little more piece of mind and an ESC that has a little less load.

you are using the hacker esc then i presume?Im not sure what that esc does for internal bec voltage but the motrolfly bec you can get 6v out of it too.The hacker may be programmable but i dunno.

I just received a 4315-480 from Ken at Motrofly. I purchased a ZTW ESC and BEC from Quantum Hobbies. 85amp OPTO ESC and 6am BEC...the BEC has selectable voltage (5, 5.5, and 6).

I have had good experiences with the ZTW products and others have reported good experiences as well...and the prices are reasonable...$55 for the ESC and $14 for the BEC.

My Hackers put out 5.6V or 5.8V (I can't remember which right now ).

If you've got only a 50cc....I had one of those...I liked a 22x8...but UTJason's also been running 23x8 carbon PT models and likes it.....

I liked the throttle response of my old DA50 on a 22" prop better....sorta like a tractor when I put a 23 on....like it did not have the torque to make a 23 spin up quick. I think the 55cc guys like a VESS 23A...and the VESS 23-carbon is good on a 60...but I prefer the 22" on a 50cc.
