hey i have 2 1550mah 3s 25c lipo's and 1 1800mah 3s 25c lipo bot gens ace i only have 1 2200mah 30c eflite lipo for this plane do you think i could use the 1800mah and get like 4 min out of it atleast?

Because i will be at my dads and we have to drive to a park to fly and it sucks having to pack everything up in the car to fly one lipo.

o and ithought about getting more 2200mah but they wouldent make it here quick enough since i am going to his house next weekend.

You can fly with all them batteries just watch your time, and how you manage your throttle. You should balance the plane with each battery though Fly and be merry

Are you talking about moving them by hand, or with the servos? If with the servos, are both sides traveling the same amount in the "up" direction, if yes to both of those, sounds like your end points are adjusted incorrectly.

When you're ailerons are at center, is the servo arm perpendicular to the control surface? If it's not, that could cause uneven throws.

yes^ that or what radio are you using because i know when i was setting it up with my dx6i that i was still alittle unfimilar with to be able to change the travel adjust on one side then i had to move the stick to the left to be able to change it for the other side, also the flap in travel adjust as to be the same as what your aileron is set to.

again im just putting out guesses of what could be happening.
