Default GEARBOX W/ BRUSHLESS OUTRUNNER

SAL,

I HAVE A SLOW STICK W/ A 370 EFLITE OUTRUNNER 1080KV AND USE A 1320 11.1V TP BATTERY. I HAVE HEARD OF FOLKS USING GEARBOXES WITH OUTRUNNERS. I AM FAIRLY NEW TO THE HOBBY AND AM CURIOUS WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A GEARBOX , IF ANY, WITH MY SET UP. THANKS

The advantage of using a gearbox is to be able to fly with a larger prop. Larger props give more thrust at lower speeds and are more efficient.
The outrunner you have at 1080 Kv is fine without a gearbox. I don't think you would see any advantage in this case.
