My brother is going through the same thing out in SoCal, coming from the same place as me. We've both retired and gotten back into 'old' hobbies. He just got a 1600mm Volantex and wants to put a 3S in for power. Has a guy at his club that is going to help him figure out batteries, props and whether a larger motor/lower kV motor than the stock Volantex 2212-1400 is going to be needed.

I'll do some searching in the forum for max temps for motors and ESC's.

Thanks again!

John
Another good item yo have : Register with "eCalc" ..... then you can put combo's of motor / ESC / LiPo / Props in to get calculated results .. thrust, Power to Weight, Amps max, flight time etc. etc.

Its only a small registration fee and pays for itself first use .. literally.
