I'm building up a 500 for a friend who's already bought a couple of 3S1P batteries to power the thing. Later on, I'll try talking him into a 5S or 6S setup, but for the moment, these are the packs he's chosen and bought.

If anyone else out there is flying their 500 with two 3S1P packs, could you post some pics of the batteries, mounted and ready to go.

I'm thinking that while I'm putting this bird together, I'll go ahead and drop the battery tray down a bit to make room for those 5S/6S packs later down the road.

But for now, I'm just interested in seeing how others have strapped their dual packs down.

Thanks

Here are two 2500mah Flight Power EvoLite 3S1P packs mounted on my 500. No tray modification necessary for these packs or my two 2200 Performance Plus 3S1P packs.

Would two 4s packs work out on the stock motor/esc?

Casey,

I don't think that you could use the Stock motor or ESC. However, I am using the TP Prolite 4s 2100 packs you sold me for just that very use. I am running a CC85HV (didn't want to buy another ESC and i had this laying around. I also have the Scorpion 3026-1400 which I was using on 6s but I am using a smaller pinion. So far it's not much different than running it 6s in terms of power. The 15c batteries still warm up. I may go with higher C batteries in the future and that will likely get my temps down as well.
