5S 3300 mah
Is anyone running 5S 3300mah setup in their Trex 500. Word has it that you can get equal fight time and power with some 5S vs 6S setups? Can anyone confirm? According to one of the larger online heli shops JK himself is running a 5S setup with great results. I am building a Trex 500 CF with stock motor and ESC, but don't want to use 6S if I can use 5S batteries with equal results. Besides my chargers only go up 5 cell and really don't want them.

Yes JK uses a 5s setup. Not as powerful as 6s but there is still plenty.Team Avant

Sounds like you need a upgrade this is a great charger and will allow up to 9S http://cgi.ebay.com/Astro-Flight-Mo...1QQcmdZViewItem cheep too JK might use 5S but can you fly like JK the higher the cell count things run cooler and last longer.

As hard as JK flies on 5S, the rest of us should have no issues with things running hot or lasting longer. He pushes a heli and its electronics harder than the average pilot, so why would it be an issue? Not sure I agree with that statement.BEAM TEAM USA
