I think i'll get the Thunder Power 5S 1800mah 70C for it; unless I can get one slightly bigger.
Looking forward to building it. My Jolt 2 is flying perfect. Hopefully it won't rain this Saturday so I can fly it... We'll see.
Mark at dinogy has a 2200 and a 2600 5s that will fit the 2200 is not on his website but he has some

Cool. I'll check into that when I get it finished and see what will still fit. It'll be finished around Feb. I was just out flying my Jolt 2 behind my house. The soccer players loved watching that! They were just arriving as we were finishing flying out there. My neighbors don't mind. They even like watching my F1 and Q40 nitro's. Lit my pulse jet out there once.. That was a lil too loud.. lol Really echoes off the hills.

My Jolt 2 had a flameout recently. The bearings seized. Have a new ESC and motor. I'll see about getting them wired up and mounted back in my airframe either today or tomorrow.

What size prop did you make? It hauls! I have a 1115 1Y direct drive that I took out of an X plane because it puffed the packs first flight. What is the biggest pack you can fit?

I'm using the Thunder Power 5S 2700mah 70C Magna. A good stock prop that will haul and never worry about is the 4.75x5.5 If you want a lil more top end, I took a 5.25x6.25 and cut it down to 4.54x6.25. I re shaped and balanced after I cut it down. I would cut it down just a hair more though to like 4.5 dia. or just under. I've been flying it every weekend that way for a year without any trouble. All my logged reports are good.

Just wired up my new motor and ESC. Still need to trim and terminate the power leads, once I fit and measure back into the fuse. Trim the shaft down too.
