the issue would be batteries ... 160mAh batteries fall a lot over 1.5A load.. this motor/ESC can go up to +2A ... maybe using a 250mAh batt would do better..

Be aware that the recomended prop for the motor you say its a 4X2.5 ... i think the stock is 5X2.5 so maybe it can go overpower?
In any case it anounces 90g thrust.. that almost a power to weight ratio of 2:1 should go unlimited vertical easy

Thanks for a little reassurance. I mostly make an estimated guess to how these power setups work. Im gonna rebuild my baby this winter so I might as well go for the BL right? If not I can always re make it. if it works it will be worth the $14. Ill try a bigger batt too as all I have are the 160mah. I do have a watt meter I think I can wire up to test it. I'll post my results and take pics.
