    lipo 4s?

    So guy at the hobby shop said I can run 4s via 2 2cells. Not the case the esc won't work. Only parallel not series. The only way I can seen to run both lipos in series is with the lvd off. So I see all these vids of. People running 4s but how?

    Dont try 4s with the Stock Esc.
    Its possible that the Motor could take the Power for a Short time But the Esc Not.

    People in yt Videos use different Esc and motors to Run 4s in Series for a longer time. Parallel would be 2 times 2s with Double runtime, But Not Double Power.

    You can kill your Esc with 3S, so dont try more Than 3S speed runs with a changed gearing to be save.

    We ran 4s with the LVD off one time in my son's MERV just to see how fast it would be. It got VERY hot VERY fast and I would not recommend doing it. If you really want to run 4s I would look for an after market ESC better suited to that kind of voltage and a lower kv motor.
