    Hi guys, putting price aside.... Is it possible to run a 22.2v/10000+mAh lipo in a FlameWheel for longer flight times?.

    Just saw a clip on YouTube about a custom build hex running 22.2v/16000mAh boasting 40mins flight time.

    Reason I ask, I'm either running 2x11.1/2800mAh batts getting the usual 8 to 10 mins. And same with 1x14.8/5000mAh. That's fine when I'm filming from land, however I do a lot from back of my wake boat and it can get pretty stress full performing carrier landings.

    It's possible, you'll need ESC's rated for 6S as well as some lower kv motors.

    4S is the limit for the stock ESCs and motors on the F450/550.
