Anyhow, really enjoyed flying my Extra 330 tonight. Winds were light and I think the wing loading and power setup on my 45" (clip wing) Extra 330 is just right using my 6 oz 2200mah lipos
What??? another vid...coming soon.
You missed the point I was trying to make, if you take a power system capable of handling more juice than either of your test batts are capable of producing and then ran this system with both batts at wot you would see that the larger batt would produce more power than the smaller one. I believe this is what the discussion was about, not the semantics of whether a motor demands power or not.
