I accidentally put a 1550mah in mine and flew it for 5:30. Came down at 11.1 volts.

Man, it flies GREAT with the lighter battery. I never thought this plane hovered as well as my 51... but with the 1550mah it's sooooo easy.

If you're using a spektrum TX, make sure your flap input switch is set to inh. This will probably fix your problem.

I cut a new one but I didn't make a drawing of it. I just cut to almost fit and then trimmed to fit and epoxied it over what was left of the original.

My 65's run fine on 6v. Some have pushed them a little higher.

I have the castle 10 amp bec and HS65MG's as well. I set the output voltage (with the castle link) at 5.3 volts. The 65's seemed to be over excited at the full 6.0 volts. The rated range on the box is 4.8 to 6.0 volts. I was thinking of halfway at 5.4 volts.

I just bumped the voltage up to 5.6 volts. I was swinging an APC 14X7E with Turnigy 3S 2200 40C. It seemed a bit weak and my flying time was low @ 6 minutes. I propped down to a 13X6.5E.
