550e DFC battery question
Looking at getting a 550 DFC. Can y'all tell me what kind of run times you are getting for your specific head speed setups and battery sizes. Also, would the 6s 3300's I'm running in my 600efl Pro be big enough to get any run time worth while? Thanks!

I run a 6s5000 and use about 3800mah in a 5min flight at 2450rpm. You aren't going to get much time out of a 3300.Dr.Don

I'm using 6S 5000s from Turnigy, have my timer set to go off at 5-1/2 minutes. Seems to work well.-----

Also if you use 3300 packs the heli will be tail heavy. We use the pulse 45c 5000 packs in ours. Balances great. Chuck.

I would think it to be too heavy and too bulky to fit under the hood as well.beating the air into submission...........cool!

I have been running 6s 5000mah 2300rpm on 550mm blades and get 5:00-5:30 pulling 3600-4100mah out of lipos.

On a side note the v2 frame seemed to be a bit tail heavy, now with the upgraded tail boom and tail assembly has seemed to make this more of an issue. On my DFC combo converted back to v2 head and v2 boom stuff but does have the upgraded tail assembly. Such small weight at the tail distance out does make a difference. My hyperion 6s 5000mah are ~860g and hang a little further to the front then with a v2 tail assembly also (couldn't imagine trying to get 1-3300mah to balance). I recall a guy on HF running 2x 3300mah lipos in 12s setup with a 600e Pro canopy which seems to be very close to the DFC canopy and might have enough room under the hood (don't have any 3300mah on hand to verify this).

I run my 550 dfc on 12s using 2600 to 3300 mah lipos,I can confirm they will both fit under the canopy so you could run them in parallel where as I run them in series of course.

gens ace 2600s,Turnigys blue 3000s and 3300s both 30c variant.

Also the heli balances fine.
