    Nice setup, slnelso.

    What size spacer are you using for the top deck to fit that battery in?

    I'll be interested to hear how you go with the Multistar LIPO. I was considering using them but the reviews seem to be fairly critical around voltage sagging so decided to play it safe (at least initially).

    Thanks Matt.

    I'm using 36mm spacers, and they are just tall enough for the 4s 5000s. There's also a trick to installing this size in the frame... I have to slide the battery in diagonally from the rear corner as the width between the rear two standoffs is not quite wide enough for this size pack. Not a big deal, just something to be aware of if you want to put this size batter in the frame.

    I've also read mixed reviews on the multistars. Seems like most of the reviewers that have trouble with them are pushing the limits of the C rating for those batteries, but its hard to say for sure. The Multistars are rated for 10 C continous, and 20 burst. On the 6600mah packs I'm eyeing up, that 66A continous. The peak I've seen on my OSD during a punch out is just under 50A, so I should be OK with that size pack. However, that likely wouldn't be the case running a 3000-4000 mah multistar pack (rated for 30A-40A continuous). I suspect that's where most have the trouble.
