Re: Help on this set-up please


Those batteries are no good for powering your plane.

Those small Li-ion cells are not designed for high discharge rates. At most, they are only good for about 8.8 amps (4400mAh * 2C = 8.8A)

This is nowhere near enough power for your Electrostick. You need at least a 3 cell battery capable of delivering at least 22 amps (250W). LiPo or A123 cells are your best choices here.

Re: Help on this set-up please

you could make a 3cells tx pack if you don't mind charging "à la" Li-Ion.
As stated before, suited for slow discharge at which they excel.


ces accumulateurs pourraient faire une bonne batteries d'émetteur (3 en série) mais ne devraient pas être utilisée pour des applications demandant des décharges rapides.
Attention à la soudure: ça explose facilement et ça fait du dégât. Renseignez-vous sur la question avant de vous lancer.

Bonne chance!
Lets learn from history: say no to etnic cleansing.
