Default Asking for Advice. Building a Beast.

I'll be working on turning the ol' second-hand beater into my pride and joy.

Before:

Scorpion 4035 500kv @ 100% ungoverned
ICE2 120
2200mAh LiFe
Align DS610's w/ Savox 1290MG on the tail
Radix 690/ Rail 105
iKon
25c Gens 5300's

After:

Xnova XTS 4530 525kv
Scorpion Commander 160A 59V
RJX 40A BEC
Xpert R2's w/ R2T
Spin Black Belt 120's
iKon 2 BT
45c Pulse 5000s Green Label / 30c/80c Optipower 4300s

I know there is going to be a lot more forces trying to rip the heli apart with the better parts. My flying style also incorporates a lot of collective and cyclic stabbing (think pop-and-lock tic-tocs in all orientations.) I also like switching from extremely low HS (1200-1300ish ungoverned) to high HS mid-flight.

What special precautions, if any, would you take during this rebuild and setup?

You shouldnt have any issues with the x7 flying it the way you do. Its a solid heli just like it is.

What controls your spool up rate when you do this?

Lovely setup and nice bird!
Just wondering which pinion you ll be using to reach such low HS....the esc will not be happy at all...

I am using the stock pinion that came with the V1 kit. I have been doing it with the ICE120 without issue and without too much heat. I was thinking the Scorp would run cooler with active freewheeling.

Previously the change was somewhat gradual with the ICE 2. I haven't yet tested it with the scorpion.

Edit: I misspoke - I did have the ESC governed, however the setup didn't hold it very well...
