Hello,

I'm using aplus packs 5300 Mah/22C with a 11t pinion. Idle up set for 2150 rpm's.
Good enough for 6:15 min of medium 3D.
After this time I charge back 4000 Mah.

Grtz

Wait, you're using two 2100 3s packs, so you have a 6s 2100 pack? That's a dangerously low capacity for such a large heli... I don't know how you're getting 5 minutes unless you're only hovering at a low headspeed.

The 6s 5000 will be a much better size. Its hard to say what kind of flight time you'll get because it depends on the setup and your flight style. it could last only 4 minutes of hard 3D or it could last over 10 minutes for smooth sport flight...
