One thing that's been hindering me in this build is trying to stick with the 4s batteries that I have on hand. I think I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and switch to a 6s setup.

I'm still humming and hawing over whether to build a quad or hex. While the hex will give smoother flight characteristics the quad will be marginally cheaper to build.

I do the same. Except with turnigy nanotechs. Those packs puff badly if left charged.
I still have a pack, the first I ever bought, it is in a constant state of charge and performs like new.

I did eventually get it out. Plane wasca write off.

I don't think it ever flew aerodynamically using the wings.
