Help!
Electric suggestions

Hello all

I currently have an Art Hobby Sk1.7E. It's a nice ship but I'm looking for something that has some more power and the capacity to fit at least maybe a 3s2200 battery. The Art hobby is built light and battery is only a910 mah 3cell. I want to be able to get it up in the sky quick and high if you know what I'm saying. Looking for any suggestions.

Thanks

Pulsar 3.2 in your favourite configuration (RES,REF,full house)with a Neu 1115/1D 6.7:1, 16x8 will scoot. 2200 3S is perfect fit.

As so many before you, you didn't provide a budget? $1000 OK?

Something a little less?

What is so special about a 3S 2200 battery pack. Why do you want such a big battery pack?

My Radian with an upgraded prop and battery is running on a 1000 mah 40C pack. Stays up forever.

I fly an electric Supra Pro - 3.4 Meters. Makes 200 meters in 24 seconds. I use a 1300 3S pack. Why would I need anything larger? That is usually good for an hour or more depending on how the lift is running.

Insofar as the Mystique is concerned (no experience with the others listed) a 3S 2200 allows proper balance without having to add nose weight. I think the specs call for a 3S 3300, but I've never tried anything that big.

Sorry I didn't post a budget as I wasn't sure. But not spending$1000. That's for sure maybe $500. I had a radian and it does stay up there forever. Just not as flashy as some of the v tail or t tail composites. Maybe I'm thinking more of a warmliner not sure like the nike 2 or swish
