Yes I agree that 6s is a more simple way to go. But added weight? I run 2-4s 4000 in series and it is only a couple of ounces heavier than a 6s 5000. and I can split the packs and do a 57" type plane. Many 8s guys are running 2-4s 3700 packs and are coming in lighter than the 6s 5000. Just a thought.

I'm willing to bet there is almost as many running 8s setups as 6s.

Weight is pretty much negligable between 6S and 4S. Amp draw is a lot less on 8S obviously or you can run more propon the same or still less amps

I am flying the vyper at 6S but with the 72 extra i will definately play with 6S vs 8S (two 4S packs from the 57) on the A50-12L

Depending on the motor selected and the battery packs an 8s can weigh the same as 6s. My setup withe the scorpion 4035 weighs essentially the same as most of the 6s hacker setups.

Rush hour 2? I believe it was Chris Tucker's character.

Edit: actually, I think it was Chris Tucker's character in rush hour 1, and Jackie Chan's character in rush hour 2, ... or I could be totally wrong....
