Just try it, you'll like it, and you can handle it.

Then, when you start wondering again, go to 5S.

Then, consider mounting a turbine

^^ what Bill said.

I ran that exact setup for quite some time before I went to 5s on that prop.

The 16/35/1 KPG27 5.2 16x17s on 4S was the first and only thing I ran. I didn't get a chance to try 5S

Doug, when you put the 16x17 on, just go ahead and drop a 5S pack in there too

As a matter of fact Doug, you have mine. Get busy finding out what it can do. And take clean underwear with you.

Also, we want video of the " first" flights, and edit out the bad words, because I'm pretty certain a few will slip out

My ESC is set as per many posts on this thread,and a few pm's,i have no problem reaching out for advice and buy no means i am saying i was steered in the wrong directions,all info matched with others,plus the Neu link you sent me to(after the CC125 craped out on me,i triple checked this new ice for settings)...This Ice Light 100 is done,smoked....Or should i say "it did not like the 16X17 prop" cause i have MANY flights with no issue with the 14.5X14....I do ALOT of flying during the daylight savings time of the year,that i do not post about....and more then i will even admit to ....I do not know what i am missing,but hotlining has come at a very large cost of equipment,and a few forced landings,and crashes,in a very short time ....I will take a deep breath,do the repaires,and go from there.....Or just wait tell the CC125 comes back pre-set and ready to go....I already ordered a new spinner,and 16X17 prop...But i will tell you what,THIS IS ONE STRONG FLIPPING AIRFRAME....The fuselage damage is minimal...There is more damage from the lipo flying forward then the hit to the ground.

Doug,obviously its just a bad luck then,I have no other explanation with Your CCs venture.I dont think it did not like prop size ,You have not even push CC to the limits on this SHORT launch,there was something else...

I burnt lots of controllers but never managed put on smoke CC 100
One of my plane on 8S with CC100 regular current draw was 270Amps,
She was flying fine ...until got in to cruel guy's hands
Yuri,another cruel guy

That right there is one of the 3 main reasons I got rid of all my geared setups.

Sorry to see that.

I never got used to having my throttle on a switch.

Voodoo, what 100ice firmware version do you have it?. What about some static test, you did them before fly..

Doug, that hurts man !
Were you using a separate RX pack ? I would have thought you'd still have control even if the ESC was the cause of the crash.
