ok guys i ran my numbers on the watt meter just now with my 3s and my 4s pack.
3s pack -
amps-32
whatts-330
@12.2 volts(i ran em on another plane of mine first but only less than a min)

4s pack-
amps-50
whats-730
@16.5 volts(same as above)

so there's 2 40 amp esc's in this 550, so im basically wondering if the numbers are handled by both controllers 100% each or 50-50%? if its 50-50 i imagine it should handle just fine. anyone wanna shed some light on this? thanks guys.

Stout,
Total amperage is 32 or 50, so each esc pulls roughly half.
I separated my esc's and each one is supplied by 3s 2200 pack.
I also changed motors to 4300kV with 2-bladed fans.
Each esc draws 25A, 270 watt and total thrust is 1350g (47.6oz)
I get 7-8 minutes wot.

so are you saying it shoud be ok to run my 4s @50 amps because each esc pulls roughly half? i have a few 3s 2200 packs i might try and split my esc's too one day. do you know what the stock kv is on the motors? i am finding it really hard to get a grip on brushless motor numbers and matching edf's.

i used the nitroplanes 10 dollar dsr retracts. and there is a great pdf somewhere on the dynam Cessna 330 forum on how to make the stock nose strut steerable on the retract. (i used a tubing cutter to cut an e-clip groove in it). they work great.

You should be OK, but keep an eye on battery. At that high of a draw it might be a strain on it. Don't allow it to get too hot.
I have couple sets of retracts. Got to see which ones will fit the easiest.
This plane will benefit from them for sure.

Nitroplanes has a coupon for 10% off on Dynam planes.

When it asks you in checkout for a coupon type: DYNAM10

I tried to post link from my email from them, but it sends you to Dynam planes with no mention of the sale.
Here is the picture:

Here is short vid of Citation with 4300kV motors and 2 bladed prop, running on 2 2200mAh, 3cell, 20c batteries.
The more I fly it, the more I like it.

No I don't.
I couldn't find them. I have a servo less set from HK. Will see how they work.

Here is another vid I shot today.
Dynam Turbo Jet Cessna Citation II.mpg (5 min 5 sec)


I have to check if the motors I got can handle 4cell. Be interesting to see how fast can it go
