For those of you flying the 550E, what type of battery setup are you running? I will be building one shortly and was wondering if there is enough room for two 3S batteries.

Thanks,

Shawn

I don't think there is room for much else but two 3s may fit on the tray but why?? I ran a 5200,45c align in mine. One battery works best. IMO....

Gravity's a bitch ant it?

6s 5000 65c Turningy Nano-Tech

I went with the heavier battery because I was concerned with getting the correct cg.

I love flying, I hate gravity.

Also gens ace 6s 5300 30c are better performance but also lighter than a 5000 45c pulse 6s

2-3s
I'm running 2 - 3s. 4500 on my 550. It's much larger than my gens ace 6s 5300 but no problems fitting under the hood.

I run 1 6S 5000mah 40C Haiyin pack.

Beefy wiring, cells were matched, decent price.

CG is right on.

AND EC3 connectors, banana not bullet.

I recently purchased and use a Glacier 5800 45c pack which is the same basic weight as the pulse 5500 45c. CG is good and the Glacier is abit cheaper.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them
