Engine Upgrade for Shogun

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a modified shogun 400 with a himax 2025-4200 on a 9T pinion and 3S lipo.

I get aprox 2800RPM on the head with this setup but I dont thing the motor has enough torque to handle heavier 3D. The headspeed still drops too much uring tight flips and sharp climb outs.

My Question is this:

What other motor would be a good choice to maintain the same headspeed as the himax but have a little more touque for handling the 3D. I am not looking to go outrunner on this I want to stick to a traditional brushless can style motor.

P.S. - I have a super Shogun with all the heliup upgrades and a DH400 Outrunner that is insane also but the other one is gonna get a Bell222 with retracts body on it soon and I want a motor with more tourque so that I dont have to add a heatsink when its inside a fuse.

Thanks again folks.

You can shoot Just Go Fly they will tailor you one for very little cost over a DH400 outrunner. Kontronik alos makes a new micro 400 sized one that is supposed to tun super cool. Can not remember which it is though....
Once upon a time there were Nitros, Flybars & Frequency pins

Maybe I will just keep the himax as is with the 9T seeing as its gonna be a scale BELL222 heli soon and the motor wont be under any real 3D load. If it gets too hot I can just drop it back down to the 8T to take the load off the motor.

I still have "T-REX KILLER" for 3D
