Thanks a lot.

I am considering getting the PNP stinger 64 from HK - so you (or anyone else in this thread) can confirm the stock motor can take 4S lipos or not at all long term..? If I were only to upgrade the ESC for 4S with the stock motor, what amp rated ESC would I need- 40Amp? thanks in advance

so far Self.. record was 4 flights I think.. so.. better go with the arf from the start..
the 4s cyclone power can also fly on 3s.. but just fly..

that's a shame- I was hoping to keep it simple- and there are no suitable motor/fan unit upgrades (for running 4S safely) available at the hobbyking site that I could purchase with the ARF (no motor/electronics) version at HK at the same time?

I'm wondering, is it the stock ESC or motor that craps out in the PnP version on 4S?

Secondly, when/ if the ESC craps out, does it (usually) take out the BEC as well?

Just got my TT number from the HK Euro warehouse for a PnP

well on 3500 kv I wouldn't say it will run 3s.. it will be way underpowered.

You can get a great set up from a fellow RCgrouper, and it takes only a few days to get it. Look up The Don. I just got a 4s capable fan/motor combo shipped for about the same price you will pay HK (I already had the esc). It should take my stinger close to 100 mph.

yes.. of course Don is the best solution.. but he was looking to buy both from the same vendor If I get it right

yup, I hear ya, and I like to do that as well. Don also carries the ESCs too. Can't wait to get my second one in the air. I get plenty of looks and comments at the field for the red/yellow one I have. Can't beat it for the money!

thanks I will contact the Don and see what he says- thanks- was hoping for a set up that will run well on both 3S and 4S ideally- shame the HK setup won't run well on 3S..
