I tested 70% throttle on the Trex 500 V2 flybar kit with the BL70G in governor mode and the RPM dropped to 2355 rpm. I didn't really notice a big difference in performance for my flying so I am keeping it there. I didn't notice any more heat from the ESC than normal. I might experiment with lower throttle but I don't think I would want to keep it much lower than 70. I have yet to review how dropping to 70% has impacted the held rpm consistency (variance in rpm at hover and during maneuvers). I am curious if it got better or worse and I suspect it got worse.

Did you mean 2355? 1355 seems awfully low, and you said you were getting 2440 rpm at 75%.

Any thoughts on these in a 500e, anyone?

I like the fact that they already come with a Deans connector installed, and the price is also pretty good. They are a little on the large/heavy side, though. Do they fit, and will the COG be OK?
They also have slightly smaller/lighter ones, but they have been out of stock forquite a while already:

Wow, those are some big suckers! They certainly won't fit under the stock canopy. Are you using them in that MD500?

Just FYI,

Rapicon 3300 30c and Zippy Compact 3300 60C fits into 500 L Dominator, but I dont think a bigger battery than Zippy Compact will fit this heli.
