Well if it's a 550 then the Z-Power Z30A should work pretty good but I've no idea what kv the bird is designed around. The Z30A is normally 1150kv. Although they do an 800kv version as well.

Probably stating the obvious, but the Jazz 80 won't do 8S. Now the Jive 80+ HV...

I've been kicking around what I run on this heli.... Think about this...

Keeping with the spirit of high voltage low amp draw (like the G5) I'm kicking around the idea of using a 10s setup. Now hear me out before you "Jeremy has lost his mind". If I can get a Lipo pack around 700-800 grams and a mah of around 2600-2800 running a 10s setup would really work well. I don't know the gearing on this heli so I can't start matching components, but I think it could be done.... CC85-HV ESC.... Hummmm......

Just to add even more options to the mix, I'm running 10S A123 on my Swift. Pack weight is 775g, 2300mah (and 2000 mah of that is usable, no 80% rule like with lipo). Output voltage under load is ~29 volts.

In my Swift, running a Neu 1910/1.5Y / CC45HV, I get 6 minutes of aggressive sport flying at 1950 rpm on 550 SABs.

Now the bigger question is whether the 10S A123 "brick" configuration will fit in the frames.

Yes unless you run more than 6s.

Not if you watch the video's of Henry Caldwell, Steven Fox and Craig Martin, they were all running 6S 5000ma Outrage packs.

I decided on going with a 6s setup for sure. I'm also going to use the ESC the Team Pilots are using (PHX-120) with the Z30-1100 or Scorpion HK-4020-1100 motor.

Getting closer!!! Can't wait. Unloading stuff to make room in my hanger.

could useing 2 3s 2200 packs from their 450 w/ a z20 motor work. only for sport flyin. ive seen a bunch of ppl do this w/ their g550, but then again, that bird is LIGHT. just an idea for those budget flyers.

2x 2200mah pack is going to be a VERY short flight and pushing it in the power dept.
