Hmm, 4s you say? I have got some 4s 2200mah's here that i have no use for at the moment, i'll give them a try! This thing on 3s is pretty quick so i can see that 4s is going to be fun!!!

Yeah, i ditched the stock motor and esc after its 2nd flight as they were coming down super hot and smelling slightly burnt, and that was only using bursts of 15 seconds or less with a rest period between squirts of the throttle.

Im now using the 3639 750kv as suggested by mustflynow2 a little while ago and with the full carbon 13x7 folding prop it is great! Its quickly become one of my top 3 favourite planes with this setup. And as mustflynow2 just suggested i'll give it a crack on 4s this week sometime and let you all know my result.
