Even the Jazz 40-6-18 could be fine, but it is very much on the edge, expecially with all digitals.

For the jazz owners wanting to use A123 simply set controller to nicd-nimh ,this way still has a soft cutoff , Jazz without card is autolipo and Ni -XX ,auto lipo is a problem.

Corrado be carefull on firsts flights as A123 as the cells have a very flat discharge curve and suddenly depletes. Be ready.
I will be running a 55-6-18 as in my logo 10 with digitals but Im no hardcore flyer.
A 10s A123 pack in my logo at 2200rpm and 2,8kilos runs for 7 minutes with a lower than recommended governor setting. This same setup was running on 6s4200 lipo for 10 minutes flighttimes . Jazz 55-10-32 is very good even with that massive partial throttle .
7S is like a very good 5s lipo or your worn down 6s 2500
They also like to be warm to perform.

Cheers.

Lipo cutoff is usually enabled by setting Mode 9, and disabled by default.

Tomorrow my batteries will be here. I got ready, i bought a Robbe Infinity 3 and a 12S balancer from robbe too. I bought balancers leads. I think i am all set i just have to figure out the right connection cables for the 7S balancer.

I'll post picks of the battery on the heli once i have all the work done.
I think 6S will fit without any problem, 7S have to check.

I forgot to mention to say goodbye to any static current belt problem, belt obviously touches the metal pinion on the motor so it is grounded the best way possible

I saw this in my Jazz 40 manual - BEC
1.5A continuous
2.5A 10sec surge

MotorMike just replied to me that it could do 3A burst.

Corrado ,It will be good if you hook up the data logger in the bec cable and run as hard as it gets . This will be the needed info for ESC selection.

Cheers.

Great idea! I would like to start picking out electronics as readyheli has the Phoenix 45HV on sale at the moment...

With 45HV i think you won't have any problem since you have to put an external bec.
