Rafier,
the EX was already produced before I got into quick helis back in 2005. Back then it was the V1 which wasnt more than an anodized version of the SP, and a few other goodies. The V2 was introduced about 3 years ago it included beefier main and tail shafts thats promised higher headspeed durability. Redesigned head mechanics and thicker alum. frames.

I would use some 6s1p 3000 to 3300mah 25C batteries on the Sportsman to get around 5 to 6 minutes flight. . .
Also , do the battery frame mod for better battery position..

You could also go with a large 4s. I once wired two 3100mah 4s packs parallel to make a 6200mah (14.8v) in a SP and that thing would fly for about 12mins, with 80% still in the packs, no fade on power. Very efficient, quite heavy but Flew quite well.

You can use a 4s1p . I flew my Sportsman EP8 on 4s1p 3250mah 20C for over 2 years and had lots of fun with it.

I a bit surprised that the US doesn't have more dealers for QJ. They seem popular in other parts of the world. Thanks for the history twinring!

I'm new to QJ myself husa58. I really appreciate the insights and info from both twinring and jimbo. They gave me great advice on on how to outfit my EP8. Slowly getting the electronics together.
