Seems like everyone has hit the eggnog a bit early. Every time I check out the thread I'm laughing at some post here and there.

Sky lipo has the 250 25c batts too, though currently out of stock. Going to need some smaller and lighter batterys myself. Lightest I have is 28g.

What about this battery approach:

Hopefully, not much extra weight or resistance?

I have one that I use on other stuff. Should work but adds a bit of weight.

The weight is negligible. I use one on the crack lite for hyperions. Glenns are great connectors with little loss.

We're all drooling over the CYM to notice. At least I am, dunno about the others here.

Glad you guys are having fun. That's what I always loved about this hobby.

I was looking at the motor more closer. A bit puzzled though, is the esc the actual mount? A good prop or nose hit might render it useless. Chris and Cody you've have the wee beastie for awhile what's you take on it?

The ESC is the mount. The motor/ESC combo is tough as nails. You will not have a problem there. You have to remember that this airplane is very small. The G10 board the ESC is on is about 100 times stronger than the rest of the airplane.
