Jason,
My 3 cell lipo weighs 6.5 oz. The 2 cell, 2300 mah weighs in at 5.5 oz. I think the beaver can handle the extra weight of another A123. Don't plan on any 3d flying.
When charging my lipos, may be using the wrong setting on my multi4

Your lipos can be charged at 2c min, unless they say on the side front 5c..

Hi

I have one of these and have run into he same issue with the fuel tank with the DLE 35 installation. I have considered mounting the tank sideways on the floor but I think it will end up causing fuel starvation problems particularly during a right turn when the fuel level is low.

Have you changed the clunk set up in the tank to try and improve the fuel pick up?
Actually now that you mention it I didn't even consider this. Thanks for the heads up. Now to ponder what to do??????? Ideas???????

Have a look at the setup on flying giants thread.

Re: 30CC Hanger 9 Beaver

I plan to do a mock setup on the bench to see how hot they get. They will be flashing alternately 90 times a minute. If they generate too much heat , I will have to look for another system I guess. Will keep you posted.

Re: 30CC Hanger 9 Beaver

I don't think you would be disapointed with the easylights.

Re: 30CC Hanger 9 Beaver

The lights will not be on all the time but each one will flash 45 times a minute.
Like I said, if they get too hot on my bench test, then I will probably go to LED'S.
