About the same as the good version of the 1806N. It's rated at 2400kv versus 2500 for the 1806, but on the GWS 4530 prop it seems to have about the same amount of thrust.

Anyone used one of these batteries?

I love the Hyperion and plan to get some more but want a few extra lipos on the cheap. less flight time is ok to a certain extent.

I use a lot of those batteries and the GensAce batteries. They'll work great in this plane. So will the 450s.

Mee too, meaning NanoTech and GensAce 3S450 packs are perfect in this parkflyer.

My work has recently built a new warehouse but has not yet put it in use. So while working saturday I decided to try flying the f22 inside.

Turns out even though the warehouse is big, the walls close in real fast. Really tested the slower speed skills. Still made a dozen laps inside but got bored pretty quick and thats when I met the wall and the concrete floor.

Needed a few small repairs but should be flying today, weather permitting.

I will take grass over concrete any day.

Nacho,

That's about the size of space we had at the AMA Expo a few weeks ago. Real tight, but brave souls can manage it. But you're right, lazy patterns get boring after a while.

This thread needs a bump! I was at the 4th Annual Big Jolt fly-in this past weekend, and took 2nd place in the night fly competition with my F-22 night flyer! I can't believe I built the night flyer over 2 years ago, and she's still going strong. True, I don't fly it as often as I do my regular version, but she has seen her share of battle damage and repairs. And every time I fly it, people are simply amazed by it. And with 162 LEDs on it, it really brightens up the sky!

You sold it, I hope you have more foam ready! You chose a great bird to start with, they don't get much better that the F22
