Frank that'd be great. I'm staying at Lackland during the trip, but we're going to look for houses in the Cibolo/Schertz area.

Did you mean the 4325-280? I have the 4325-280 in my 70" Slick, spinning a 19x10, my temps about 35-40 degrees above ambient outside air temp. I also have the 4320-300 in my 65" Vyper, spinning an 18x10 which runs about 10-15 degrees above ambient temps..

There's a field near Lackland too called Alamo Radio Control Society (ARCS). But if your getting stationed at Randolph, RiverCity is your most convenient place plus they are more laid back at RiverCity.

I had the 4325-380 in my 70 SLiCK and was putting out near 100 amps with a xoar 19x10 Cory (Stang Killa SS) had Ken rewind it to 310 (if my memory is correct)

Mater,

Was that on 6S? The 4325-280 on 8s with 20x8 Xoar works nice. I was just surprised my flight time dropped to 6 mins over my previous setup. I previously had the Scorp 4025-16, 8s, and 18x8 Xoar and got about 7.5 mins, same battery packs.

Great little motor that scorp. Still running one in my 70, 18x8 but 6 min all I get, about 25-30% left. on the throttle a decent amount.

To bad they decided to almost double the price.

I agree. I think mine got too hot though. All the magnets came loose from the can which is why I replaced it.

Also have one on a 65 vyper, exact same setup, opened up the cowl a lot beause vypers(mine) always run a bit hot. It makes a noise(rubbing) but keeps on working. Only makes the noise under power, spins freely by hand...weird. Wanting to go to a 4325 340.

now is that a 4320 or a 4325? if its a 4320 it that a custom wind? That KV is not listed on the web site. I see the 4320 is a little over an ounce lighter, but the cross mount is the same size.

Yes, it was a custom wind that I picked up used. Same size x mount. Awesome little motor! runs cool on the Vyper
