85mph at 60 amps? You'd look like you were reversing compared to many other 70mm options out there.

take a look at the flying weight too.. And its apanther. Not a meteor. Getting 1039watts
69amps peak on the bench on high timing.
My 60amp turnigy plush handles that just fine

Jordan,

Beautiful looking planes! I want to do the TB theme on my next one.

With the 5s 4000 pack, have you balanced the CG? How much does your pack weigh?

A Genesis 2200mAh 40C can deliver 88amps continuous and weighs only 350g +/- 5g. The original battery weight was around 240g.
6S 70mm setup, Wemo, HET, CS weigh in at 190g. The ESC wouldn't change because its still only drawing 60amps and you don't need to constantly burn the 2 kg of thrust it produces which is well over the original.
So its not a too far out there an option. Because this models tends to float, he could go up to a 3000mAh battery depending on his desired flying style.

Its the wings and wheels he has to worry about with any extra weight over factory.

How do you find those Nano's? Have you been using them for long?

Some hate them others seem to love them. I can't tell if its that they don't handle being abused drawing down too many amps or something else that gets bad press with them.

In the other build thread I posted a pic with the calculated CG, NP, etc. I just don't have it front of me to tell you.
