KDE DIRECT XF BRUSHLESS MOTOR PROMOTION EXTENDED FOR SUMMER

Alright, alright…it’s Summer and we’ve been listening – you want to fly the KDE Direct XF Brushless Motors, and the only thing holding you up right now is your budget. The KDE Direct XF Brushless Motors were definitely not built-cheap (only the industry-best components and design methodology was used) and are built-to-last, but we’ve decided to extend the promotion one more time for the Summer season to get you out there enjoying the performance and quality these motors are known for. We like to consider this a FunFly promotion for those who haven’t met us at the shows.

SLANT MAIN DRIVE GEAR, 112T, MOD1.0, HD
FOR ALIGN TREX 700 SERIES HELICOPTERS

Item Number: AT700-MDGM1-HDS

Price: $38.95
Material: Nylatron Proprietary Type 66 Polyamide
Models: all ALIGN TREX 700E (V1/V2/DFC) and 700N/800 E-Conversion series (replaces stock Align part #H70020B). This gear is not recommended for the TREX 550/600 series helicopters and the reduced-height version of the slant gear (KDE Direct TREX 550/600/700 Series Slant Main Drive Gear, 112T, MOD 1.0) is recommended for those setups to achieve optimal fit and performance.

Recommended Accessories:
KDE DIRECT TREX 700E UNIVERSAL MOTOR MOUNT AND PINION SUPPORT

Important Notice: due to tolerance variability with the stock TREX 700E (V1/V2/DFC) motor mount and frames, it is recommended to also install the KDE Direct TREX 700E Universal Motor Mount and Pinion Support upgrade to provide the ability for optimal gear mesh adjustability.

Note: the new Slant Main Drive Gear Heavy-Duty series is precision CNC-machined from a proprietary Nylatron MoS2-Filled Type 66 Polyamide, one of the best materials available today for polymer gears and the perfect match for an extremely strong, smooth running, and durable power transmission for the TREX 700E series helicopters. The gear is composed of 112 teeth, utilizing the metric MOD1.0 tooth standard for incredible strength. Through months of testing, the
gear has been optimized to include numerous design features for optimum performance, including:

(1) Increased gear height to 12 mm (stock is 10 mm) for increased strength and contact surface area.
(2) The tooth involute profile has been optimized through numerous design iterations for increased tooth engagement and strength, providing an incredibly quiet and durable gear for a MOD1.0 power train.
(3) Weight was reduced through FEA optimizations of the machining pattern to significantly reduce weight, while maintaining full strength of a solid-gear profile.
(4) The self-lubricating properties of the proprietary MoS2-Filled Type 66 Polyamide material provides exceptional wear and noise properties, providing a gear that can withstand the harsh nature of hardcore 3D flight.

Includes:
- One (1) TREX 700 Series Slant Main Drive Gear, 112T, MOD1.0, Heavy-Duty

Finish:
Precision CNC-machined, Nylatron Proprietary MoS2-Filled Type 66 Polyamide

Weight:
55 g (design is FEA optimized for maximum strength and minimum weight)

ESC TESTING RESULTS FROM THE FIELD

While it’s known the KDE Direct XF Brushless Motor Series works excellent with the Caslte Creations ICE2 HV and ICE series ESCs (developed in collaboration with their team and recommended by KDE Direct), customers have found they work excellent with a host of other ESC brands on the market. A few findings we wanted to pass on:

Kontronik: motors work excellent with the latest Version 11 firmware from Kontronik, so it’s worth the upgrade from previous releases if you haven’t done so. Kontronik Engineers recommend using “KSA” mode when available, found on the HeliJive and PowerJive series.

YGE: motors work excellent (very accurate governor control) when used in conjunction with external governor controls, such as the Mikado VBAR electric-governor (v5.3). A very popular combination on larger 700 and 800-class helicopters.

Scorpion: customers running the XF motors with success on the Commander V 50V/130A controllers – no compatibility issues have been reported thus far.
