And came back from flying just to buy another one not exactly scale :

But rest assured - a Windrider Hurricane is on its way, and then at least I'll have one that can be made fairly accurate

I saw that one! Funny how it seemed like there weren't many hurricanes out there, and now it seems many! I had expo turned up to 100%, and I probably should have had it down for maiden. I have since turned it down some, and it should work better for my heavy hands. I would hate to crash it, it is just so pretty! LOL! -----Metalguy

Your problem will be fitting a 3s pack. There is nowhere near the space afforded by say the Skyangel/HK Funfighters where some have gone as large as a 2200 3s pack! You would probably need to do major surgery as even a 3s 500 pack would be too deep to fit under the hatch. I had to remove the inner canopy ridges and carve out some foam infront and behind the lipo compartment to fit 2S 800 packs Gens Ace 800 2S1P 20C Lipo Battery
Weight: 45g
Capacity: 800mAh
Voltage: 2S1P (7.4v) 2 cell
Discharge Rate: 20-30C
Size: 54mmx28mmx15mm

May I ask why? It has more than adequate speed on 2 cell.

Andy: are we talking about the same plane here?
I use NanoTech 2S 850mAh 25-40C. They are 60x31x16 and fits with plenty of room to spare...
I even tried a Nano 3S 850 850mAh 25-40C, at 63x32x25 just now - they fit very snug, but I would have had to shave 2mm off the ridge in front of the hatch to get it flush. Not that I would ever fly with that, to heavy, and I do not by any means need more speed.

Agreed, this plane flys great on 2 cells!

you say you are useing a NanoTech 2S 850mAh 25-40C
but spec says Battery: Li-Po 7.4V 1000 - 1300mAh so a 2 cell 1300mAh wont fit

I have room for my NanoTech 2s 1300. They are same height and width as the 2S 850, but 15mm longer - there is plenty of room lengthwise, the height/width are the limiting measurements...

Just for the fun of it - I just tried with a NanoTech 3cell 1300 25-50c, and they will fit with a minimal shave on the ridges off the inside of the hatch - but it makes the plane way to nose heavy,, the wing loading will increase, no doubt ruining the sweet handling, and there is in my opinion a single reason to use 3 cell in this plane. It already have thrust over 1:1 and it is a warbird, not a 3D plane...

I got in some more flying with this beautiful aircraft today. I flew it with an APC 8-6 and a 1000mAh pack after an 800 pack proved to be one of mine that is a little tired. Flies nice, and seems to have ample power. I am afraid there isn't a lot of room, weight-wise for big, heavy packs, but I don't mind less flight times, it is just such a beauty in the air, as well as on the ground. I did notice the landing gear are poorly glued in, as on a smooooooth landing on grass, one came out! Other than that, a really nice plane.-------Metalguy
