This will be a great upgrade to make your 50mm EDF jets scoot on 3S lipo!
That's awesome -- might have to try one of these. Don -- do you know if it will be faster or fast-as the 4s setups ?
I was thinking it could be pretty close -- while you're losing power, you're able to drop a considerable
amount of weight at the same time.
What does the motor weigh? I haven't even figured that in --- but you should be able to get away with a quality 30-35amp ESC (30A Turnigy Sentry would hold up on 3s in my opinion), much lighter battery as well.
seems if you went 3s 1000 to 1300mah 30C --- you could come in around 375-400g AUW.
That's pretty solid --- on 4s 1600mah 30C i was flying at 505g AUW... I think the flight characteristics would improve dramatically while the speed fall off might not be too much at all.
