I would think the biggest problem is getting it to balance correctly with only one 6S pack up front.

But, I'm curious to see the responses.

Miniature Aircraft sells a conversion to go 6s. Part number is MA 2800-30.

I have been told by owners that power is similar to a 50 nitro.

Hi, I fly my Furion 6 on 6S with the shortened boom and 553mm Edge blades. The heli flies better than I had expected . It is not crazy over-powered but it still flies with plenty of authority and maneuverability for 3D. Tic tocs, large hurricanes and piroflips are no problem.

Just make sure you go with 5000mAh packs at a minimum on 6S. The picture below on the right shows mine with a 6S 4400 pack but it's a bit on the small side for this 550 bird so flight times suffer.

BTW, I just got the RC Logger video sunglasses this past weekend at IRCHA so I'm going to try to get it on video this weekend.

Edit: Oh yeah, and mine is flybarred. So FBL should add a bit more performance .

Video

Here is a quick video of mine from earlier today. This is my first time using the video sunglasses and now realize that I have to keep the model VERY CLOSE or else it's hard to see... so make sure you maximize the screen and use HD. I think you can still get a good idea of the performance I'm getting with my flybarred 6S setup. I sure love the maneuverability of this heli and the simplicity of 6S .

Chachin,
Looks pretty decent! What motor, gearing, and headspeed are you running?

Thanks,
John

Thanks John! This has become my new favorite heli of my fleet . I'm running a Scorpion 4025-890 with 13T pinion and the latest 6S TP 5000mAh (70C) packs. I haven't been able to tach its headspeed but I'm estimating somewhere around 2300 rpms.

It's a sweet flying heli indeed. Can't imagine what it can do on 10 or 12S and 600 mm blades. I may just have to try it out. I made a slightly better video (zoomwise) today, but I'll start a new thread for that one.

Chachin..

What sort of flight time are you getting with that set up?

Thanks

Hi Rudy, sorry I was away for a while. I was setting my timer to 4:20 at the beginning flying smoothly, but now that I fly more aggressively I set it for 4:00min flat and put back in between 3500 and 3600mAh which is perfect.

Based on the performance of my similarly sized/setup FBL Logo550SX, this same heli turned FBL on 4:00min flight time would probably consume 3100 to 3200mAh with a noticeable extra punch. So you would certainly gain more flight time if you go that route.

Chachin..
