I did a search and couldn't find any info on running 4s packs with the 430xl motor and the align 35 amp esc. Is this even possible? I am currently running the 430xl with a 3s pack and have really enjoyed it but after watching some of the videos of people flying with the 4S packs, I am wanting a little more.

Which Align ESC? They have several 35 amp ESCs. Anyway, I know the BL-35X ESC will work with 4S packs, but you can't use the builtin BEC with 4S packs so you'll need to buy a BEC.

Can someone please explain what is meant by the 's' rating of a battery pack? I've searched for previous explanations and all I see is mention of it, without any detail. Just curious what it means. I have TP LiPos and see no mention of this rating anywhere on them. Thanks!

The s refers to the number of cells wired in series. Determines voltage. Each lipo cell has a nominal voltage of 3.7v. So a 3s = 11.1v, 4s = 14.8v.

It looks like I have the BL-35G, it is about 2 years old, has anyone tried to use it with a 4S pack?

Viper, good luck! I'd think the XL Kv is too high for 4s(3700Kv) The Align esc? Ha! a fishing weight.
