Question
Wicked powered Phase 3 f-16 battery question

Hey Don,
Happy holidays! I'm running your 4800 motor on your wicked EDF fan (60mm) with a CC 35 amp ESC or Pentium 40 amp ESC. Previously on a stock f-16 I have used 3s 2200 30C lipos, but they get hot & puffy & flight times are short. I don't want to go 4S just yet, so Im planning on buying some 3S 2400 40C lipos to get some longer flight times & keep the battery temp. cool. Any suggestions or comments are welcome. Thanks & I'll post some pics as soon as the bird is finished.

Ray

Make sure the timing is set to low on those ESCs. That setup should be in the 30-32 amp region maybe 35 with that 2200mah 30C lipo which means at full throttle flight times will be about 4 minutes but that should not puff the lipo. Are you sure you have 4800 maybe you have a 5400? That pulls about 40 amps on 3S.

It's the 4800. I'm saving my 5400 for my Alfa Mig-15 (heh heh heh!) It was with the stock inrunner that came with the phase 3 that would puff my lipos. Thanks for your quick reply! I'll post pics & a flight report when the build is all done.
