Understanding Gear Ratios: Different gear ratios change how the power is applied to the air. As the letter gets further away from "A" (more and more gear reduction) the RPM and pitch speed is reduced and the static thrust (and usually prop diameter) is increased. In other words the prop shaft will turn slower but with more torque so it can handle larger props. If the pitch speed does not exceed the stall speed you can't pull the model fast enough to make it fly. You usually want pitch speed to be at least 2-2.5 X stall speed for slow fliers, trainers and 3D models. Sport aerobatic models 2.5-3X stall speed, pattern airplanes at least 3X stall speed. If your experimenting be sure to get a range of props for the motor. In many instances one prop will make the model feel poor while another prop might exceed your expectations. Nobody can predict what will work best for you so get what you think will work and a couple nearby props so your not missing out on better performance. Look in props section for simple math to calculate pitch speed if prop pitch and RPM are known.

Worlds Highest power to weight ratio Speed 300 motor/mount/heat sink/gearbox combo which is suggested in the Vertigo Kit. Suggested pack is 10-720 NiMH or 3S 1200 HD Lipo, Prop 8-6 or 9-4.7 GWS, you'll be around 16 oz static thrust at 8 amps, 35mph pitch speed all at front of charge. High power system gives you ultimate power to weight ratio. Assembly weight without prop is 67g/2.4oz. Fox XL anodized aluminium combination motor mount/gearbox frame/heat sink (look in "Electric Flight Accessories/Motor Mounts & Heat Sinks"). Note: Prop is for illustration only.
Motor asm. only without heat sink motor mount available below.
All of these power systems use the same motor at different gear ratios. GWS says not to load them over about 12 amps. These are 7.2 S-400 motors. Although GWS normally reccomends these for 2S or 7-8 Nimh Nicad cells. They work well at 3S (or 10 round cells) if you keep the amps to 12 or less. they are best utilized at 8-12 amps range. No prop amp load chart is available for these.
