I ended up using a very light 5S 2500mAh setup since the Scorpion motor kv was too high for 6S.
That's great news, I love it when I can get dual use out of my Lipo's, seems like a waste to drop the coin for dedicated packs with no other use. I was contemplating doing a 40-Size Edge 300 just so I would have something else to use them with.
So LA Heli is slow in releasing the Sniper but l hope it's only because they are perfecting it rather then a resource allocation problem.
