    Well, I was going to wait for Chris's 1300Kv motor but I just smashed one of my ZII's into a tree leaving me with an OS 3820 1200Kv looking for a home. So I'll probably start with the exact same power combo I've been running in that ZII.


    OS 3820 1200Kv
    Castle 75Amp ESC
    2 4s 3300's
    Aeronaut folding 10x6.... I also have some 9x6 I ordered on accident. Might try those as well.
    Hitec 225mg's

    I'll report on how it goes.

    ^-- Were you wide open throttle a lot? I'd be hoping for twice that flight time with 7000mAH?!

    I can't see why you should expect that stubbed if you dial these figures into eCalc you will see that they are very realistic.
