2400CP Question

On my 16' Zagi project that I'm going to be working on in a couple of weeks when it arrives I am planning on using 2 packs of 10x2400CP Zapped. Its going to use 4 geared Endo's (same setup as the E3D uses) with 2 speed controls. 1 speed control and battery pack for each 2 motors. So I'll be getting about 70amps for two motors. Can the 2400CP Zapped Cells take that much or not? If not what cell do i have to go to that can take that many?

Be carefull about running multiple endo's in series. I did that with my OV-10, and although an endo on 10 cells, at 40 amps works great and lasts,.. the two of them in series on 20 cells had "problems". I can only think that one saw more voltage and current than it should have on occassion. I'm re-wiring the OV-10 and installing two ESC's, so it will be two seperate 10 cell systems. I hope this will work,.. as a single endo in each side will be the result, which normally works well,..rather than a 20-cell series setup. If I still have a problem, it's got to be the cowled-in installations not having enough cooling. Should be neet,.. flat spins with one motor off, and one full tilt .

It also depends on your flying style. Sanyo 2400 have no problems taking these kind of currents for short bursts, but for continuous running 35-40A is about the maximum the cells can take without "undressing" themselves. Jürgen
