Hoping to get some feedback from experienced "Squallers"

I have a new 3S Squall kit, but I have only 4S batteries. I want to convert this kit to 4S and would like to know what a solid, and relatively inexpensive set-up would be recommended? - Fan, Motor, ESC...

Thanks in advance!
Gabriel

Hi Gabriel,
A couple setups come to mind:
HET 6904 with a 2W20
E-Flite Delta-V 15 with a 3600 or 3700kv motor.

Both can be had used for $60-75 used, depending on condition.

Harder to find is the ARC 28-47-1 (sometimes called the 28-48-1), which is a high kv motor that'll spin like crazy on 4s.

There are likely some budget brand options out there as well from Turnigy, Freewing, and others, but I'm not too familiar with those.

Shameless plug: I happen to have some spare sets of the eflite, HET, and ARC equipment for sale here on RCG. If you're interested, let me know.

Best,
Josh

Thank you, Josh !

This is great info....I am still learning how to match, motors, fans Esc...etc.

I will look through your ads and others to see if this a project i'll pursue...otherwise I might just put this jet up for sale! It's brand new in the box.

I appreciate it !
Gabriel

I ran mine on a WEMO/2W20 setup on some ZC 2700 40c 5S packs and it was @#%+* fast! I miss mine, one of my top favorites. Anyone have a NIB to part with.
