This Banana pocket plane is FAST!

This was given to me by cityevader a while back

I was flying stock on 3s for a while and it was a bit boring, so I threw a 30amp ESC and upped it to a 4S 30c 1000mah. It's blazing fast! The 4S was also given to me by cityevader. Tx's city.

with a wattmeter on it, I can tell the batteries are struggling to keep up though. voltage drops from 16.8 to the high 14's on WOT on a full charge and they come down pretty hot at the end of a 3 min flight.

I've probably done 25+ flights on it and the batteries don't seem to be affected at all by the high "c" output.

I wonder how much more speed I can get moving to slightly larger lipos (1300's), and 40c nano's...
