lipo battery
Is it okay to use a lipo battery @ 3300 mah for TREX 450 Pro? I will use it for the scale fuselage on my Trex 450 Pro. The weight of the battery is 342 grams. I tried to balance it for the CG and it works. it flies well and balanced. Longer flight too. I know 2200mah lipo battery for non-fuselage is ideal. My only concern is: Will this not be a conflict with the ESC or motor capacity? Please advise. Thank you.

Yes, you can use that fine. The ESC cares about how many cells not MAH.

Thanks,

Think of battery capacity like a gas tank on your car.
a 15 gallon gas tank as opposed to a 10 gallon gas tank will in no way affect how much fuel goes to the engine. But it will mean you will be able to drive about 50% further on a tank of gas. It will also add weight, which will affect stopping and acceleration as well as handling.

Your motor and ESC will be fine, but the motor might have to work a little harder lugging the extra weight around. That's all.

If its for scale flying try a 2s 5000mah pack and just run a higher throttle curve, you will get even longer flights.60% of the time, it works every time!
