No disrespect at all, just don't understand the reasoning.
lol, no problem....

I like to keep to 3 or 4S. Accepted that 6S is divisible by 3S, but that halves my packs.

I don't mind about longevity of flight, subject to being >2 mins if it rips the sky up.

A 1W30 motor on a 6904 fan is a wicked setup. 124A is a peak, 109A typical I think. That's not too crazy - people fly the Lander on 3S/800W dont they?

Anyhow, to answer the question - lipo rationing.........there's a logic there, honest. Logic to me anyway.......

Panther back in one piece after an hour or so on the dining table.

HK ESC gets an appalling review, but given the airframe has just about survived, I might give it a go.......unless there is a no-brainer ESC for <$50
