Dambit,

What MAh battery are you using? A 5000g usually around 3200mah - 3400mah? if so you can definitely go bigger and will help.

I would like to use a 5000-5300mah also, but those batteries are designated for my SU35. Ill have to get some more at some point.

Hi, i'm going to use Nanotech 8000mah weight 1150g, any opinion?
P51 weight 4080g + 1150g = 5230g

I think the plane will have no problem at all with that battery and the weight, I considered useing it myself. Though it will take some modification and creativity to get it to fit? that battery is also what I want for the P-47
