Are you sure the 2s pack will work with the AF010?
They did not for me, but that was an old Kokam 2040mah pack.

My 010's like lots of voltage or they are lethargic!

I've never flown a GWS Spitfire, but the 1200mah 3s Etec packs work great with my AF 010 14t and 10t motors flying the Dandy and Switchback Sports and Slow Stick.

If weight is an issue, perhaps a 700mah 3s Etec pack?


PS - I'm not knocking the TP packs. I've just never tried them.

I am flying a P-51 with the 350 and I use a 2s2p of Etech 1200....I also use this same pack in a formosa with a razor 2500a...I also use a TP 3s1p in both....As for the astro motor I think I would stay with the etechs...and as dave said if weight is an issue i would drop down to the 700 etechs.....Tom
