Escap p530 and Losmandy G11 was created by nirvana
I am using escap p530 motors on Losmandy G11 mount with StarGo WiFi. I was wondering which .mcf should I use for this hardware configuration. Could I use some of the default presets? Do I need a especial one? Custom?
On the other hand, will it be a good idea to change these motors by Avalon LosmandyHQ motors? Would I get any benefit? Thank you

Dear

Since you are using the escape p530 motors that has a different gear ratio, you can't use any of the preset .mcf available on the StarGo, so you should find the correct Gear Ratio by using the Custom option in the Advanced panel.

Anyway, even when you will find the correct Gar Ratio, in this way you can have a max slew speed of 0,5 deg per sec.

To have a faster speed and you could consider the Avalon Instruments HQ or HS motors, for more information abvout it, please read the following article available on our troubleshooting area:

Which custom values should I use with StarGo? Please, could you help me?

I know max speed with Portescap motor is 0,5 deg per sec. which it does not important to me. Apart from that ¿is there other benefit to using HQ kit?
Thank you

Hello
You must set in the Custom value the final mount gear ratio, so in your case you must set the following value:
360 x escap P530 reducer factor, where 360 it is the Gear teeth number
For example if you have a 12:1 P530 reducer factor you must set 360x12 = 4320
It must be done for both the RA and DEC axis and it can be different in case of different Gear Ratio
Let me know if you need more information
