I got to see a Checkpoint 19T at the Snowbirds. Once you see the endbell you won't be concerned. The molding is phenomenally well done and the material is unlike anything I have seen before. It is not at all like the plastic used in any other endbell. It is rock hard.

The motors are assembled and just waiting for the packaging right now. You should see the first batch shipped to Great Planes next week.

Would you rather them release a product that's not ready yet or make sure they get it right the first time?

Here is some info regarding the molded endbells vs. aluminum that Curtis posted in his DC thread--

"the plastic endbells are for the OEM mods and upcoming spec motors to be released by Checkpoint.
The decision of using plastic endbells on the OEM mods was strictly a cost issue. Steve said he couldn’t manufacturer the Al endbells cheap enough to compete in the OEM market............................................ ...So far our testing with the plastic endbell has yielded the same operating temperatures as the Al version, 145-165*F….."

Default Gear Ratio Question

Hi Daryl and all -
I got a 8x1 and 8x2 (with old plastic end bell) on 6 cells touring with rubber tires.
I am running on out door / hot weather (air temp from 30-35C degree).
What is the recommended final gear ratio ?

Thank you very much

I tested run the 8x2 today at 1:9.08 under hot weather.
Performance is good and can last for more than 6min with IB3800 cells. The motor is not very hot after run. 3 packs down the road and the performance is still there without a single touch on the motor.
It is great !
I will order the gold and silver spring to play with ... hope to test my 8x1 next time.

Thanks
Ernest

9.08 Final ratio ?? I think you could go lower like 8.00 - 8.20. with checkpoint motors.

I live in Jakarta, tropical weather, 31C - 34C, most of us here use 8.20 final ratio for Reedy Ti & Pt and V2 motors.
