If you are using the stock motor, a Pixie 7 from Castle Creations works well. It's what I use on the stock motor.

WOW 10 cells!!!!!!!!!!

It's gonna be way heavy
Typically most try and keep it under 7oz!
ONE hard landing with a 10 would most likley rip it apart!

IF you are gonna go BL get a CC10,Ya can't go wrong!

If you are gonna stay brushed and use lipos make sure you get a controller with Low voltage cut off(lvc)!!

Nimhs and Nicds would be close in weight, nimhs would be a little lighter. Ikarus recomends 10 cells, so it shouldn't be that bad, but lipos would(3 cells) would make it fly a lot better. Try it on ten and then try it on lipos - you'll see a world of difference.
