Optimal RPM Setup for Electric Conversion
(Determine Motor & Battery)

The tables below will help determine what electric motor and/or battery to use with the Electric Conversion Kit ( CN1000EC ) when used on Century R/C Helicopters with stock gears.

 

* NOTE: All calculations based on theoretical voltage of 3.7 volts per cell. Desired optimal headspeed for 2-bladed setup is between 1650-1800 RPM. Desired setup for multi-bladed setup is between 1550-1750 RPM.

R/C helicopters using 55 tooth counter gear and 14 tooth pinion:
