my collection of four 1300mah 3s lipos lend themselves very well to a 12s 500 maybe even a 550. The difficulty in making a 300 to 380 into twelve s is not the lipos since most any size, mah, and physical dimensions could make up a 12s lipo pack (I acquired a 350mah lipo yesterday to size up a small 12s pack for a 300 or 450) problem would be in making a motor small in size for the low kv requirements in that application.

One question I'd like to ask is when 2200mah 3s 11.1v equals 5 minute flight time, by dividing the mah x 4, will this be the equivalent in mah to give the same duration while cutting the amperage by 4 also? If this is true then only 25c lipos are needed in a 12s configuration.

Again, motor winding would be the only real problem to achieve proper kv in a small can.

First part is correct a 3s 2200mah pack would give the same flight time as a 12s 550mah pack. Your second statement is incorrect, you still need the same C rated pack in both cases. Yes you have quartered the current draw but you have also quartered the capacity (C).

2200mah 25C = 55A continuous

550mah 25C = 13.75A Continuous

60% of the time, it works every time!
