    RE: trex 500 flight times

    I get 8.5 to 9 minutes on a 4 cell 5000mah 45c Turnigy, running in Idle-up 1 of about 1800 rpm. Cut it down to 6 minutes for Idle-up 2 at 2150 rpm. Using a 16 tooth motor pinion on the stock main gear, & stock motor. I also have a Lipo monitoring device on-board, but mostly I use the count-down timer on the TX.

    RE: trex 500 flight times


    hey guys,
    i can see that some of you use 4s batteries and some use 6s.
    shouldn't it always be always 6s (22.2v) on a trex 500?
    a 4s batt is only 14.8v.
    what do have to take into account to choose the battery i want to use?
    thanks.
    Good flights for all of you.

    Page 24 of the Trex500 manual I have shows the setup for 4,5, or 6S. It is a matter of motor pinion selection, up to 17t for 4S. I fly 13t on 6S2650 20C for 5 minutes and have a 25% reserve capacity (only put back about 1700mAh). That is FFF, flips, rolls, loops sport type flying.

    I usually get 6.5 min out of 3000mah 6s - 1700kv with 12T.
    There is an art to flying an RC Helicopter. The art lies in learning how to throw it at the ground and miss.
