Post subject: Pinion tooth count
I'm getting my first 450 (a clone, but the question is 450 generic), I don't know how to figure out what size pinion I should use on the motor. I think the important thing is the head speed?, but I don't know what it should be, or what happens if it's under or over. I'm getting a turnigy super brain ESC which logs motor rpm, so I could figure out the head rpm from that if I know the number of teeth on the pinion and main gear, but as I don't know what I'm aiming for I wouldn't know what to change Smile
