Hey!!! Whippy Pilots. Whats under your hood? Send some pics of what you got and how you have it wired. I'm looking for a neat way to wire up my whippy, also Nitro guys as well.

Scorpion HKIII-4035 450KV
BLS255HV on cyclic
BLS251 on tail
Scott Gray Reactor X2 regulator
3850mah 2S TP flight pack for ballast and on-board electronics
Microbeast FBL unit
5200mah Align 40C 6S pack

I fly mine exclusively on 6S as a low-performance, high-efficiency, high safety experimentation platform, approx 1200-1300 head speed. One of my Aligns gives 8 to 10 mins flight time (tho it still gives 8 minutes on 12S also). Not really what a Whippy is designed for, but it turns out it does a great job, especially with the Radix V2 710 blades. I can even aileron roll and loop it with not much trouble and even stationary flips are doable with good collective management (else you'll blow out the tail really easily).

WAG on the weight with one flight batt in it is between 10.5 and 11lbs.

As for wiring, the only suggestion I'd make is put the ESC in MA's recommended location inside the frame above the flight batt area. You have to interrupt the build for a bit to get the ESC mounted in there and the motor plugged in etc before you button it up. But this is really the perfect place for the ESC. You don't need to run any extensions to the batts, as the input leads to the ESC are plenty long when it's installed there.
