I run my 57" Extra on 4S and it's a great setup. I have a GR-60, ZTW 85 amp ESC, and 4S 4000 mah 40C batteries (about 35-40 bucks a piece). At about 80 amps I'm getting 1200 watts on a 15x6 prop. Everything comes down cool because the components were selected and designed around 4S. It works quite well if the all of the components match properly, but if you are running a 500 KV motor like the Torque (and a lower amperage ESC) with a huge prop it's probably a bad idea and you should stick with 5S or 6S.
