1400ae in brushless set up?

8 cell 1400AEs for an AXI 2814/10 direct drive with a 30a Jeti esc turning a 9x6 or 10x6 prop. Will this pack take that current or should I look elsewhere. I only ask b/c I have two of these packs already.

This will power my new Super Miss. AUW ~32oz.

I use 8x1400AEs under 18 amps. Anything more and they're getting quite warm.

Mark hit it on the nose with the amp draw capability of the 1400Ae cells. I've used a few of these packs for hundreds of flights in my twin Islander. They work well up to 17-18 amps for 30 seconds to 1 minute or so, then start to fade. I have mine propped at 18 amps and use full throttle only for takeoff and aggressive vertical flight then back off the left stick. Using them in this way has brought several flights over 11 minutes. My last pack finally died when it got wet in a float plane and had 200-300 cycles on it.

I have now switched over to the 1700AUO Nimh cells. They're a few grams heavier, the same diameter, and slightly shorter than the 1400Ae's. The difference is they can be used up to 33 ampos or so.
