Then you should go with a lipo. 7955tg's can handle 2s lipo unregulated. They would give you more torque and speed.

Why? Less capacity for weight.

You need to buy a regulator though, which is extra weight.

If you use LifePos, you need to buy a new charger.

Sometimes electric can be even more dangerous. When a gas motor hits something, it usually shuts off immediately. An electric motor keeps going. I have seen people carrying their plane by the wingtip have swing up at them because of bumping the stick. Not pretty.

I fly electric too, just not anything bigger than 450 size.
