I flew about 4 packs today and have decided I really need to move up to 4s on mine. Although I didnt see a significant improvement in flight time, It sure is more responsive and even smoother whan on 4s. Plus if I used something a little lighter than my 4000 4s I think I might even see a little better flight times. Just wished I had a ~3000mah 4s battery to try it with.
Van, what brand props are you using? I am using Zinger wooden props as that is all I have right now. Not sure they are the most efficient, but I like them ok.
I'm using GWS 3-blade props. I have mixed feelings on them. Some have blades that track pretty well, some have arrived with blades (bent) way out of track and with not lots of luck reshaping them. I don't know if this is a production problem or from shipping/packaging warpage.
