Default 3S X3?

Anyone planning or running a 3S setup.
I am digging this little guy but have 4 pretty new 55 and 60C 3S packs so would like to use em up.

My ESC is 6S ready so I'd only be into a motor swap down the road for a 6S setup.
If no one else has I may give it a go.

Scott, just go 6S.

The difference is night and day. I had a 6s 450 pro and would get 6min run times, the electronics would be room temp and the power was ballistic.

You could sell the packs on our canadian site and save yourself the hassle of changing over later.

I know the difference Scott coming from a 6S Warp. It'll only cost me motor, blades and packs later, likely next season.

The other site you speak, I was ban a few weeks ago. Still devastated by the tragic outcome
Besides nothing ever sells there anyways.

I will initially run 3S, then maybe I'll change to 6S next season.
