I run 5S 4000's with a Hyperion Zs4020-12 524kV and Xoar 15x10E prop. I do about 6mins flying and put back 2200-2800mA.

If so you can you relate motor, prop, and what kind of performance get you.

I have some 5S 5000mAH lipos I use with my 1.6m pattern plane. I was thinking it'd be nice to get a bigger 3D play than my EF Extra 48" and might be interested in the EF Extra 60" but it's be nice to not have to invest in another size of lipos.
Absolutely doable. Higher Amps than a 6S system, but same weight as I fly with my 8S setup (within an ounce or two). You just need a motor wind that supports it.
Look in the Power System for Extreme Flight Thread to get more info/specifics.

A 510 to 520 kV motor should work well on 5s with a 16x8 prop. I fly a Torque 4016-500, happy with it. My power needs are relatively modest, though.

Have you called to see if Curtis can give you some sort of estimate?
I know it stinks having to wait but I think youll be glad you did.
