I am getting 2 2s 5000 mah lipo batteries. Will i need to do a gear change? There going in a bone stock 3903 brushed emaxx.
We are running 2 2s 7000mah Kershaw lipos and run stock gears with no issues.
Welcome to LiPo!! Longer run times, lighter weight, the girls are prettier, etc.
You should be fine. When the summer brings warmer temps, make sure you keep an eye on motor temps. You might have to practice a little throttle control, or even go down a tooth or two on your pinion. Emphasis on might...
Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot
No problems here...
5800 mah lipos on the older evx2 and a separate low voltage detector on the lipos and good to go.
I get bored typically before the lipo runs out of power!!
This is coming from RC helis were you get maybe 4-6 minutes per battery on a flight!!
Lipos FTW! Zippogeek missed shorter charge time. The nimh packs took an hr and an a half to charge each plus about an hr to cool down. So 4 hrs just run. My 2s lipos, take about half the time to charge and no cool down time.
