I've been flying my nearly 3lb SkySurfer for some time now quite fast and effectively with an upgraded motor. Just cruising around at mild speeds and I can get 20+ minutes off of a 3000mAh 3s. I tend to push it quite hard down in the weeds at nearly WOT for about 9 minutes with that same setup. Single battery these days, with a simple LC filter installed between the battery (balance port) and the transmitter/camera. No motor noise.
