I am assuming that was on 3S that you burnt the external ESC? I want to get some 3S batteries but I don't know how to make 3S batteries with the bare hyperion cells and the thunder powers are expensive.

Let us know what kind of RPM figures you get with your batts...Your 45C batts only weigh 2g more than the 35C ones that I have...

There comes a point where increasing the C rating doesn't add any more power...The motor/power system can only take what it can take...And the amps go up as well...I burned out an external 6 amp ESC with my 35C batts and I'm now running a 10 amp Turnigy Plush ESC with no issues...The ESC isn't even a bit warm after a hard flight...Prop is a GWS 5030...

I'm curious as to the RPM figures you get vs mine with your 45C batts...
