Just some raw video of one of two flights today,using the suggested power system now but im still running a single 3dhs 4s 2200 pack and flying a solid 6 minutes and coming down with 14.8 volts with my style of flying. Eventually i'll get some tp 2600s or 3200+ size packs since theyll work in smaller planes as well and i still have power systems and servos for those size planes.

Heres some more video on a light set up with a 3dhs 2200 4s 25c pack in the 51'' slick,looks like 6 minute flights are well within reach without taking the voltage down to low and performance is fine at 150+ watts for my type of flying,like many i like 4s packs because there reasonably priced and work well in the size planes i usually fly and some of the smaller 47''-49'' planes can fly very highly powered with them so im trying like others to stick to the most versatile size pack i can.. paralleled 4s packs are excellent in larger 55'' set ups and anything bigger i'll go 6s and use my trex 600 packs but im leaning twards something 6s with a single pack that can still fit in my car sometime in the future because giant scale isnt in my budget or will fit in my current car.

Light set ups are cool if you dont have the bigger lipos and still get reasonable performance and can 3D. This set ups a little heavier because i only had some fullsize servos to use but the plane is all stock with no lightening work done.
