What size packs are you guys running with this? I currently have 4s 4500mah packs and they're large and makes the CG really back heavy. I don't want to put the battery on top so I'd like to find the right packs to fit in the rear of the quad like they're supposed to...

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks

I have an off brand 3s 4000 and a lumenier 5300 3s. The size and weight are about the same. Works great for me

Oh, ok... 3s huh? I have a 4s 4500 that I used on my DJI550 and it's too heavy. Do you mount the 3s pack on the back between the frames or on the top plate? Whats the flight times you're getting with those 3s packs? I thought 4s would be better but I may look into getting some 3s packs...

sorry, I just saw this. They both fit between the frame nicely. Actually both batteries are pretty much the same size and weight. I get about 9-10 min of hard flying with the 4000 but I think the battery is on its last leg. I have a friend with a similar setup getting a few min more. I don't have a time on the 5200 I havent flown with it yet. The 3s is very smooth, I read that the 4s gives you more power and more punch but I like how smooth the 3s flies.

Oh, ok!! Thanks for the info. I will prob try to grab a 3s pack and see how I like it. I'm still playing around with the set up so it'll be ready this wk to try it out.
