This will be a camera ship hauling roughly 7 pounds of gear. The conversion went well and it was easy. I did not cut the boom notch back further to match the 600 boom. Not sure if that is necessary. It appears The tail TT mesh on both ends is ok. It is extremely tail heavy with only 2x3S 30C 5000mah batteries up front. I'm getting a couple 6s 30C 5000mah and thought the weight of both of those would balance it. I could run them in parallel because I just have the stock 100A ESC and 600M motor and the ESC only allows 6 cells.

Big question here is will this cook my electronics?

I will upgrade the motor and ESC soon but I would like to try it out with the existing setup.

Good/Bad?

I can adjust the camera mount forward to get the CG right but I want to fly it without the equipment first.

Thanks!

Motor/ESC recomendation
How about a Scorpion 4035-500kv with a CC Phoenix Ice HV 160 running 2 6S 30C 5000mah batteries?

when you say 2 6s i'm assuming you're wiring it up as 12s.
if that's the case then go for it.
do not fly with your current set up unless you want to see the phoenix.
