The web site propose 4500ma 4 S or 2200ma 6 S
What advantages to use either one.
The prices seems to be close.
Undecide which one to select.
Thanks for your input.

a lot of guys have 3s 2200 batteries hanging around,so you could series them to get 6s..like wise for 4s batts...if you don't have batts hanging around,i would go with 6s because of less amps..smaller esc and possibly bigger prop..

Be careful guys. What you actually need is a series connector for two 3S lipos...NOT a parallel adapter.

For example on two 3s2200 Lipos:

A series connector will give you 6S2200
A parallel connector will give you 3s4400

Is it OK to run two 3S batteries of different mAh, say a 2200 and a 2100 for your serial setup?

Not a good idea, they should be of the same capacity and c rating. Preferably even the same brand and age.

You have to think of it like this, you are essentially turning two batteries into one and if they don't match it's like having half the cells in the battery different than the other half. On my 70" Slick I hook two batteries in series and I have them matched as close to each other as I can, then I mark them with a Sharpie so I always charge them and discharge them the same as if they were one pack. Also when I use them separately in my 60" planes as 4s I try to fly at least the same two packs down every time I fly so they have approximately the same number of cycles on them when I pair them up in the Slick again. This may be a little overboard but I figure it can't hurt to do this.

Thanks for the feedback.It really help .I just realize the motor coming from Milehigh for the 360 SLICK is working on 4s batteries maximum.So I'll get some 3300mA 4s.The next step is to find a good brand.
Any preferred brand ?
Thanks
Phil

If your flying it with the recommended kv motor your going to want to run it on 6s hands down. Higher voltage = higher prop RPM = far better performance in 3D maneuvers.

I've flown mine on 2x 3s 2250s and just picked up 4 45C Nanotechs 6s 2650's. This is the power setup I first saw it fly on and it made me want the plane. The extra capacity is nice too

Ok, but the motor data don't seems to accept 6s battery.
Mike from Milehigh is recommended to stay with 4s
Thanks

I'd go with Gensace, which are probably out of stock but worth checking on. After that Id go with Glacier. I run 25c on up. Just my preference mind you.

Like I said, its dependent on the motor KV your running.
From mile Highs website: "MOTOR:900-1000 Watt (4250/7) 4-cell 700KV / 6-cell 500KV"

I have a 500KV motor @ 6s = approx 11,100k RPM
Sounds like you have a 700kv on 4S = approx 10,300 RPM

Improved Gear for the Slick 360

I mentioned in a previous post that i thought the supplied wire gear was lacking to say the least, for an airplane like this. So I looked around for a better one and with a sketch and some assistance from Graph Tec chose this one, for a .46 U-Can-Do, its very very close to the dimensions of the wire gear
I think the end result looks great, the stance of the aircraft is preserved and so far all has been well with it.

Here is the bracket and plate I made to mount the new gear to.
