I have several 6s packs ranging from 3300 to 5000 mAh and would prefer to use those. I also have a Jeti spin 90 opto ESC that I plan on using with a LiFe pack for the RX and servos. What is appropriate Scorpion motor? thanks.
Mine has a Scorpion 4027-12 which will swing a 17x8 xoar prop and run on 6S 5000 packs. Hope that helps. Haven't flown it yet, but had others tell me this was a great setup.
