Depends on what kind of setup you want. The F-16 mods thread has tons of suggestions.

What's the top speed one could expect with the stock 4 cell version assuming the vectored thrust option is added?

Thats easy! 88.8mph I coulda had a Vee eight at the HolidayInnExpress.
My home work lead me to an airframe only, a plastic kit, and the VT unit with linkage for $129. Then I got an ARC motor and a HET 6904. I read up on the stock unit, at the time it was nfg. The combo gives a real wide flight envelope with no appreciable speed loss with the VT unit. Actual speed? don't know but over a hundred easy. Ballistic vertical!

Question for the edf guru's, does different fan pitch equate to different eflux and or flight speed within a given power setup?

Tell me about it! It was foggy today but couldn't resist testing it on 7s. I pulled up at the end of one of the runs and it completely disappeared into the low cloud/fog for about 5 seconds! S@#T myself! Air speed indicator said 140mph! It would be interesting to know what the actual ground speed was, anyone with a radar gun?

Hi,

The Storm is a fan/motor combo. Sounds like you have a Beast or Wild Beast.

3700mah to 5000. you will be pulling some amps.

Lol, you mean beast (again,lol)

3700-5000, 30C+, should be right around 100 amps.
