That's true, but at hover you won't need as much head speed with a lipo, because it's lighter. Mine hovers / flies more stablely in the wind than my friend's does (he has a lipo on his HB FP). His flies for longer (15min+ at a time), however... <shrug> I can fly more often and in more conditions, though, because I can charge my NiMh in 10 minutes... with 3 batteries I can fly for hours just stopping to change batteries every 8-10 minutes. Did that last Saturday, from 8am - 11am, the motors / batteries never got past warm... I love my FP!!

EDIT: Heat sinks help a ton too!!
