Zenoah G20ei and single LiPo cell
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have finally got around to testing my Zenoah G20ei, with the stock Zenoah electronic ignition, using one Lipo cell (well actually three in parallel)
Before I was using a 4 cell 2400 Sanyo SCR NiCd pack.
I have three Hobby King single Lipo cells in parallel for a 2550 mAh pack.
Tonight I flew for approximately 35 to 40 minutes with my G20ei in my H9 Utra Stick lite 120.
I used about 500 mAh. The engine ran perfect. Nominal no load voltage is about 4 V, I imagine under load its down to 3.8 or so.
I would safely say three 20 minute flights would be fine for the Lipo pack. I also saved quite a few ounces of weight.
If you are running a Zenoah G2oei or G26ei (same ignition) try it, it works!
