then I have on the Thunder Tiger 360 the warp 360 blades and they are the same size 365mm end to end.

Then I have on the regular 450 the 335mm HK blades , they make the 450 a lot more stable than the 325mm , if they really are 325's .

Hi Clicky! Yeah, the GensAce 6S 1400s (248gms) are a good fit in the V1 but will definitely require the one piece tray if using the original canopy. They may be a tad heavy for the V1. Im gonna order up some 1200s (220gms) for it.

Other than 6S being 10mm deeper than its 3S counterparts, the Width and Length are very similar. The latest 325S canopy has tons of room and pretty well solves past lipo size issues regardless of which tray is installed and above all good fit, looks OK and has near 500 presence in the air .

I originally gave the 1300 Nano-Techs (stubby ones > 228gms) a whirl in my 360 V1 FB version. This lipo had to be placed precisely in order to clear the V1 canopy, lucked out on COG. Long story short, two of the four 1300s lost #1 cell within a few flights. Not a happy camper! HK reviews praised this lipo. Luck of the draw I guess . On the bright side, 5.5 minutes of no sag sport is plenty good for me

I am also using HK360 red and white blades and they seem to be quite decent. Only issue I have with them is that they are really 350mm (from root to tip). I wouldn't really mind trying some 'real' 360mm blades, too...
I have the HK 360s (as you pointed out, 350 bolt to tip) installed on my FB version. I think they are pretty decent too . Its just that I had done the V2 540 set-up with the Edge 360s (353 bolt to tip) and for a nana second prior to spinning her up, the dreaded crash thought crossed my mind > 40 bucks Vs 7 Silly thoughts come and go .

Thanks Power Up - I'll need now to source some 1400 (and 1200 as you said) 6S GensAces around here. Two 1300 3S GensAce batteries (times two) + wrap are just a bit on heavy side (need to measure them) but that's on V1 stretched with high (original) battery tray. I've replaced now my 3S MT low battery tray to 6S one and other way round so there's more space under V1 canopy for HK battery and I can push 1300 GensAce's slightly further out and balance them better. I hope.

Speaking of HK1300 (stubby one) I got one but didn't get around to try it for a few months. First charge failed to charge all cells to 4.2V - they charged to 4.16V max. Subsequent charges were better but I am not having high hopes for it. I would be far more interested to get my hands on proper 6S GensAces I can use with my MT

Thanks for the pictures - that explains everything!
