Ok,
So I have 5 4s packs of Emoli cells.
I find it easier to charge and balance the 4s packs than larger ones...
If I run them in series to get an 8s pack, what would be a GREAT motor ESC combo???

Also, if I bu some a123 cells, I read that you calculate a lower voltage per cell in calculations, like 2.8v. So, if I buy some a123 packs and make them into 4s packs for running an 8s setup, will that same esc/ motor combo still be good?

I have done a lot of reading, but this stuff is still a little hard for me to grasp. Better to ask those who have already done it!!!

There is a special forum here on RunRyder for Swift flyers (and other Century Electric Helis). I am sure if you asked in there, you would get an answer right away.

Hello

Lucally for you Im running an 8s A123 setup setup and its pretty insaine.

Im using a Neu 1910-1Y witha 9 tooth pinion. The runtimes for pretty constant aerobatics are 4 mins and about 5 mins for a mix of aerobatics and crusing. There may be a cheaper Z50 alternative. Check tppacks.com

I use a Schulze Future 32.40k Controller and its been great. I think the HV45 is a decent choice too and is also a cheaper alternative.

Your HS will be just over 2k and the power will be quite insaine so be prepared for some crazy flying.
