Nano-Tech 35-70C 600mAh Lipo Test - E-Flite UMX B-17 Flying Fortress


This is the second of two videos comparing how two different batteries made my E-flite UMX B-17 fly. Each flight took place within about 10 minutes of each other in nearly identical conditions, which was very calm air with the wind changing direction slightly with the temperature in the low 30's.

Note: Trying to fly this with the stock battery was a very hairy situation each time I tried it due to the CG being WAY off out of the box.

This is my the Nano-Tech 600mAh:

Hi GB,

I noticed you're different batteries! 600 Mah nano-tech looks good, do the regular ESC/motor handle that? No overheating? Must i be careful with throttle can you go WOT all the time with that big a battery?

I think you mentioned a temperature at some point? How are you measuring that in that small fuselage?

One more question, did you attach a new battery connector for the larger lipo or did it have one compatible with the E-flite plug?

Thanks for any help!

Hey man!

I made no mods to the plane and just used the JST adapter to UMX to make this battery work. I did the same thing with my Hyperion 550 too.

Regarding temp, that was the outside temp, which was in the low 30's F.

I hope that helps!

I think this is the right adapter and I don't have the battery one handy, but this adapter should increase your battery options greatly
