You'll love the combo and beat your head against the wall when you realize how fast this combo is and how much you spent on the Tekin combo with the same results, lol

I'm currently running 4600kv 4pole 540 I like 4pole for the torque at low end and high kvs for the top end and these newer system even though high kvs temps are staying cool, I'm pretty sure majority of people are running 4pole 540s

I love my 550 2pole Orion 5.0. Tried first motor the Tekin 4.5 was good very went to the Tekin 4000 hated it no bottom end and not nearly as smooth as the 4.5 and my Orion.
