timing mode for Turnigy E500 motor?

by redhead1331 » Tue Mar 30, 2010 3:37 am

anybody else running the turnigy e500 motor? and what do you have the timing mode set at? I have it set at high right now but my battery got a little warm after flight today. Can I fly it with medium timing mode? Im using the turnigy 60A ESC.

Theres a vid on You Tube of some guy's E500 burning out due to setting the speed on high. I'd post the thread but I'm having a flash player problem.

Try googling : turnigy e500 motor speed setting and you'll see it.

I redhead,
I'm running this motor in both my 450s on the medium setting with a 10t pinion.
Everything only reaches body temp after 7 - 9mins scale /sport flying.
Got yourself a big esc there :)
