No need to mod the frame, just make new canopy holes.

Without the mod I think the battery sits way too high. I also have twin Turnigy packs that would never fit without a mod.

I use 2x1300mAh 20C Turnigy packs too The Outrage pack is slightly smaller, but way too expensive comapared with the Turnigy packs.

I normally fly 6-6.5m and put back 1000mAh with the 13T.

It would be nice if they made some longer/flatter 6S batteries.

I ordered one from RCHover on Saturday. I thought I had one but it was a 13t. I do think it needs a 14t to really perform, but the 13t is not too bad. I normally have a hs of 3500 on the 3s Pro so the 14t will get it right up there. I think I will get about 6 mins with the 13t so I bet maybe 5 mins on the 14t..

Got another flight in on it today.. Much better weather..

5 min 20 sec flight a bit too long. I put 1125 mah back into the 1300 mah pack.. that's 86%.. Reset my time to 5 mins.

The power is crazy fun. It's a blast.. Here is the Ice report.

Update.. 5/15/2010

First flight on the Turnigy battery.. Flew a four minute flight on the Turnigy. It came off cool to the touch (no temp because my stupid temp gauge will not work ). Power seemed on par or even better than the Outrage pack. Normal flight time is 5 mins for the Outrage but didn't want to over work the Turnigy on it's first flight.

Outrage Battery 220.5 Grams Total Cost $56.00 1300 Mah
Turnigy Battery 224.8 Grams Total Cost $20.00 1300 Mah

Ice download has both packs on the file but it didn't record the end of the Outrage flight. For the cost.. Turnigy looks to be the winner.. And building the pack only takes a few minutes.

Hmm

Iam curious here.. i just got my ship fine tuned: 450 Pro, -8 3s 2200 mah batt on 13T and my CG is dead on. Shes perfectly balanced

My question is on 6S and CG. With these 6S setups are you a bit nose heavy? Is it allot or by moving the tail servo to the back your CG is dead on or close enough?

Thinking of doing 6S on a sport maybe in the future

Also can you possibly throw a link to the Turnigy 6s? I find the HK site is somewhat hard to determine what 6s you need when you dont know exacly what you need! (and they have so many different sizes)

Thanks in advance!

Fly, Fly then Fly some more!!

You have to make your own 6S packs up from two of these. Works out <US$20 a pack.

They come in and out of stock quickly. I think people are buying them in bulk and then with a mark up off loading them on ebay.

My 6S Pro is tail heavy (need 40g in nose) because I have my tail servo mounted on the boom.

I bought my Turnigy batteries from HobbyKing also..

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_index.asp

You do need to take 2 1300 3S packs to make the battery.

My CG is perfect with the Turnigy and Outrage packs. I did need to move the ESC from under the battery tray, but the Ice wouldn't fit very well under there anyway.

Is 6S really that much better than 3S?
