Switching over to Lipo question

Hey guys.....been 4 years since last visiting! Can't believe it's been that long!

Thinking about switching over to a lipo battery but would appreciate help in figuring out which size I would need.

I have a B-50XL Hacker with a 16 x 16 prop. Have been running a 10 cell 3850 zapped pack.......Nimh.

Should I switch? Might not be necessary, but just thinking which setup would work with this bad mama jamma plane.

Thanks in advance.

A 3S 5000 should be a nice upgrade.

It would be good to know the KV of your motor or the winding count so we can figure out the KV. Also the speed controller used. What bad mama jamma plane you have and what 16x16 prop and hub precisely.

Then we can see if maybe you can throw in 4S, 5S or even 6S.
