Well guys...

I just installed my new 6C 3200 battery. I saved overall 107 grams of weight (not exactly a small amount) and had to move 7 grams to the nose to balance it out after some rearranging of internal component.

And holy hell... I am now getting 1540 watts at 79 Amps!!! Vs 1240 at 70 amps. The plane now holds itself up instead of dropping to the floor. I am so pumped to give this a go.

I have one major concern. I realize I am not in the air which should help but this pack is getting mighty warm even in testing. I've cut out the two oval area's in the main deck (which looks fine) but I am not sure if it's enough for airflow.

Those running 6C, have you had any problems with heat?
