Lipo batteries for my airplane

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just recently bought a carbon z yak 54 plane and put a few flights onto it using the lipo battery that it came with which is a e flight 14.8v 2800mah.

With this type of battery the plane balances level but my flight time is just under 5 min and the battery is positioned to the back of the compartment.

Has anyone tried using a bigger battery pack on the carbon z yak 54 for a longer flight time but being said the plane will be nose heavy in turn does this cause any flight issues.

Re: Lipo batteries for my airplane

A little nose heavy is always safer than tail heavy, if a larger battery fits, you can always add a little weight to the tail.
