Thanks.. I am running the 26 gram motor now..

I think my Crack Yak is back as my favourite foamie (on 3S of course).
Its like i just got a new plane.
Put my first full pack through it today with the tie wraps on the prop. What a blast! On recharge now so i can go get another 4 packs before sundown..
I did an unedited version this time for Avie, its a bit boring in places, with bits i would noramlly cut out.

Kami, Hehe, the funny thing was i had it on low rates till half way through the pack. Then the joker really came out of the CY.

Avie, I do see what you mean about the 1800kv motor on 3s, the power is about the same as 2s for the first third of the band, then you hit the upper band and the power is mental, its 2s with permanent boost, not really very linear.
But i think ill be buying some more 3s packs, im getting about 5.30 to a too flatter battery, ill need to set the timer abour 4.45 i think. Cant go back to 2s, its WAY to dull.

I have been flying my CY on 2S but today I got in 2-flights on 3S and a different plane indeed. These were old 20C Rhino's that I have not used in a while too. I think I will be ordering some 3S 25C Glacier packs but they are out of stock right now. Are you getting more flight time on 3S and did you change props during the battery switch? I am using the stock power setup from TH.
