After the Ricco build and flight time it only increases the want / need factor for a Sniper, I live in the open plains so dancing the Ricco around can be quite a workout on some days. I have a TR500 going into service which is nice but the weight will require more HS and thus shorter flight times.

Do you think I could re-use the 6S 3000mah packs from the TR500 on the Sniper or do I need more mah then that?
The Sniper is so light (~1500 grams) that the 6S 3000mAh batteries would work. When we were flight testing 5S and 6S back-to-back, we were getting more than than 8-mins on the 6S 3300mAh. We never utilized even 80% of the pack so don't know how long it would have flown.

I ended up using a very light 5S 2500mAh setup since the Scorpion motor kv was too high for 6S.
