I guess I was looking at 8s because I have quite a few 4s 4000's already laying around. I have some 6s batts but they are 3000's for my EF 60" Edge and I don't think they'd be enough for this plane as I'm assuming I'd want somethign in the 4000 to 5000 mah range right?
I'm also a little leary of putting a Hacker in this plane. I had one in my original 51" Slick and didn't love it... and it ultimately died on me mid flight and caused some damage. But it sounds like you guys are happy with the large hackers?
Motrolfly 4325-280 With a 20x8 prop rocks this plane. I'm running both 4s 4000's and 4s 4500's in series and get easily 8 minutes or more and the motor never comes down more than warm to the touch.
