I finally moved to 4s batteries. I wanted to try my Acromaster on 4s because my 3s setup didn't seem to have enough vertical power. I purchase the Rhino 2350 4s from hobbycity. Its a big heavy battery but the extra voltage really gives it a punch. I few it last week in 15-20 winds and it was 15 degrees and blowing snow. The extra weight really helped it in that kind of wind. At this new weight the plane handled much more like a larger plane. It didn't fly like foam plane with low wing loading which it is. I can't weight to fly in in more favorable conditions.
We have a new baby in the house and I haven't been on the sticks much or build much for the last few months. However, the Acromaster is flight ready and the Super Cub is still flying.
