When you increase voltage you need to run smaller props. You need a wattmeter to tell you what size and short ground runs. I never do more than 15 seconds.

1100 kV is really better for 3s voltage.

Thats what I am hearing. I won't anymore. I am going to fly again this week if the weather hold out and the next order I do, I will get a watt meter for sure!
