KDS 5.5 help
I'm wanting to convert my 5.5 to 12 cells. What all will be required ? Thanks for any help or info. And what are you doing about the battery placement?

Motor of your choice.. A good motor would be a Scorpion 4035-500

Minimum 120 ESC

Lipos- something in the 3300-3700mah range side by side.

Why do you guys all say you have to have all leas a 120 am ESC. I am running an 8s 4000 pack on a 100 amp castel edge. with a Scorpion 4025 890 kv. It is an unbogable beasty. The motor and esc and battery run cool. On 6s I agree you a 120 amp esc at least.

I agree, you take 6s to 12s you have half the esc rating.

a 60amp should be fine.

Old thread dug up but I'll add my planned setup.

To keep weight same or similar to stock 6 cell I will be running 12S 2600. Power plant will be a hand wound Pyro 650 (4020) and a Jive Pro 80Hv.

Also plan to try machine with 570mm mains, which should fit with out mod and maybe 12S 3000 for a lil extra flight time.

My experience with my previous 5.5 was 12S 3300 was too heavy, at least on 550mm

Should be starting the build soonish and can post pic's and weights once it's all setup.

Just converted mine to 12s. Wow the power is awesome!! Running a quantum 4125-560kv on two 6s 2650 45c Zippys. Flight time at 2500 Head speed is a bit low though, only getting about 3:30 (similar to what I got on 6s). Thinking about stretching it and running 600s with 3300's. Overall I'm really liking it on 12s.This hobby is like Kryptonite to chicks!
