I posted this in the main forum but thought I'd get more feedback here.

So I got the newest pro 800 super combo kit. I do very light 3D and love just flying really big loops and stuff. This is my 1st large electric helicopter I'm coming over from nitro.
Question: Should I run 14 or 12S? Just looking for longer flight times not trying to build a power monster. This kit comes with the new CC Edge 160HV
Thanks guys

Well the 160A edge does not support 14s (i'm almost positive) also 850mx is 12s motor. I'm getting about 4 - 5 min with mild 3d, but this is on 700E DFC with same power setup 850 + CC160EDGE.

I toyed with the idea of 14s on mine but it was going to be upwards of 6 to 8 hundred bucks by the time I bought battery's.I'll live with 12s and a 4 minute flight for now

Gravity's a bitch ant it?

Lower HS and/or larger capacity packs gets you more flight time, not more voltage.

For mild 3D you should need no more than 1600 rpm on an 800 +/- 100 rpm depending on what your version of 'mild 3D' is.

You should get about 6 minutes on 12s 5000mah. Turnigy Nano Tech 6s 6000mah 25-50C packs should get you about 7 minutes.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I'm using the Gens 5300mah 30c at 1500insh HS I'm getting 9+ minutes sometimes 11 minutes on my Suzy Janis conversion. It depends on how much I push it around.

Now this kit is lighter that the stock Trex. Hope this help!!!

How much your 800e stock weights ready to fly?? I think if I remember correctly mine is about 11.5 pounds.

That is .5 lighter then my 700E DFC with 5000mah thunder power 700C batts. Hmm very odd that 700E DFC be heavier then 800. I have 850MX and CC 160 Edge. Only difference is Futaba 750 and Hercules BEC.

I know but remember I have a Suzi Janis convertion kit that is lighter in weight than the 700e and or 800e Trex.

Is similar to the TDR but different layout and it allows you to use Trex parts.

I have the CC 160hv and the quantum 500kv, servos are the Savox HV no bec I resently took it off, Vbar and Futaba Sbus receiver. I use a 2s 2200 lipo plus x 2 5300mah Gens batteries Here is some picks....
