I'm using a 3s 5000mah w/ 60a Plush ESC, EzOSD, EzUHF, and a 3s 800mah for RangeVideo 800mw TX + TBS69 camera. Using the stock motor, I'm seeing 30 minute flights. The plane launches smoothly now with a nice hard throw, and doesn't feel underpowered. Using this setup, average speed has been 65mph, maximum speed reported @ 88mph, and with no throttle she glides beautifully. Next week I plan to replace the TBS69 with a GoPro using the live feed. I anticipate weight issues with the heavier GoPro so I'm wondering how the Aerodrive motor is holding up, and how bad the tradeoff will be regarding shorter flight times from these power hungry motors.
