PZ Spitfire w/ Lipo Battery

Well I finally got around to getting Lipo batteries (DN Power 15C/30C 2150mAh 11.1v) for my PZ Spitfire that I have had for a year. Soldered up the deans connectors and cranked it up. The stock motor sounds a lot more powerful now. After hearing the motor spin at full throttle I was wondering how long do they last? I have to think the extra juice wears them out quicker. Now I wish the weather would come around (Wind 20 MPH) to try it out!

I also have a HZ SuperCub. Is it possible to use Lipo batteries in that also? If I do I might just dump all my NiMh batts for Lipo's!

Jeff

Jeff, there is a jumper in the SC that needs to be moved to allow lipo use... but it flys better on the lipo... but the SC motor will die if you fly at WOT then entire time...

The Spit motor will last a good 40-50 flights as long as you dont fly WOT the entire time.
