I have a 450mah 3cell running all the video. I dont think your extra 600mah flight pack is going to do much for you.

I had a lot of people asking me for a larger plane that would launch and land better at a higher weight. The twin motors is a brainstorm that makes a lot of sense in this application and is not so hard to do.

The Reaper is 55" and the Hercules is 66" but the Hercules has almost twice as much wing area. You can put the motors on either plane anywhere and any way you want. I have one or two builders I know of using a single motor on a Hercules and I now have had flyers asking if I will set up the double motors on the Grim Reaper. I only was promoting the idea that the twin motors would improve the slow speed flight and add stability during the launching and landing.

2x 2200mah flight pack + 450mah 3S video. I will let you chase me for a bit while gaining altitude... while you run out of power and glide down, i will knock you around a few times.

I think many would like to see some real world comparisons here.

It's OK to disagree. Nothing like a good argument to get the blood flowing. Just be nice.

I want to know why you like your systems best and what they can do in extreme conditions.

How many miles can they fly?
How far from the base station can they fly?
How high can they fly?
How many minutes can they fly?
How fast can they fly?

Did I forget any?
