Just curious if anyone has done this? I have a 6s 450 and could put 2 of these packs together for a 12s system? Is there even a motor that would work?

I think this heli would be very nose heavy unless you're running something like 2x 6s 1350mAh batteries. I'm pretty sure Scorpion has a motor which will run at this voltage.

I believe it will work just fine.

I would suggest:
12S 1250-1350 (should be similar in weigh to a 6S 2500)
scorpion 3026-800 (this would yield same rpm as the commonly used 3026-1600)
castle hv-30 esc
castle hv bec

should be pretty easy, probably a 12-14T pinion would do well depending on your flying style.

I was looking at that exact motor but scorpion's site it's states max 8S. Would that be able to support 12S, without frying its self?

Wow, a 12S 500, that would be interesting...I have an 8S 500, and it's pretty awesome. HV all the way!

BTW, I have some Hyperion G3 6S 1300mAh packs for sale right now if you're interested.

Ken,

Where did you find a 6s1300 pack?

I'm not seeing such a pack listed in Hyperion's product lit:

http://media.hyperion.hk/dn/g3lipo/G3-Specs-EN.pdf

Anyone else trying this?

I was thinking of going 8s, but may try for 12s if the right packs can be found for a reasonable price (within close range of the 8s setup)

maybe 3 of these: http://hobbycity.com/hobbyking/stor...?idProduct=9366

I was hoping to fly mine last weekend. Tested and spooled up a few times and the last time my ESC smoked (CC HV 30)

I sent it in today for warranty.

It'll be another month for me

Back in is the 6s power system

I personally don't think a 30A esc is quite upto the challenge.

Hmm...technically, I think 30A should be fine. A 1500W surge would be like 33A...

I agree it should be fine. It was fine for a few times, but i did hear a pop and smoke came out of it. It sill worked, but I'm didn't want to risk flying it

looks like the CC Phoenix ICE HV 40 will fit the bill, Western Robotics Super BEC, a Neu 1706 950KV or 1708 850KV motor with 12 or 14t pinions...
