i think you'll find the 5s just wont power the motor enough. you need that 22.2 minimum o
if it does work the motor will be WAY OUT of the efficient range and most likely run hot

only you have the power to make no difference!

Thanks,

Just wanted to save a few (read a lot) of bucks, until I master the art of the TREX600

Cheers,
Christian

keep watching the heli-world web sire clearance sales. last week tp 5000 mah were $249
i only bought on decided that i should get 2 more and they sold out already
bummer
the 3800 are on sale but i think flight times will only be around 3 mins so im in no rush to get one.

only you have the power to make no difference!

What will happen if I do use the 5S1P to power up the TREX600 with stock motor? will the battery die? will the engine quit?

What do I have to fear?

My TREX600 is calling, and I want to answer

Cheers,
Christian

5s

Its really not worth trying. It will fly like a dog. . Most guys are running thier 6s2p at 100% accross the board on thier ESC and they still occasionally bog the head doing mild 3D. Why don't you try to sell your pack on RR then buy a DN pack for 150.00 I hear it is a decent pack.
