Default Hyperion 4200mah 35c and 4.9kg flight weight.

Hello guys

Decided to get 2 pairs of these lipos to try out as I wanted a lighter setup. With a bit of trimming down and these new packs I dropped 0.4 kg. Lets just say I dont think I can face flying my bigger lipos again now I have experienced this! 2000rpm and 5min flight time. It tic tocs like the 6hv now. Super fast and tight. I want to go lighter but $400 on a new esc to drop another 100g aint happening. The law of dimishing returns I suppose!

Great stuff ! 4.9kg and close to 2k rpm seems to be the right thing for the HV. Exactly as you said: tic tocs on its own !!

The Pyro 700 will give you another drop, depending on which plant your running. 105g compared to the 4926. I didn't see that significant difference in feel on mine, but I'll be continuing to experiment. Seems my 7HV has become a continuing test bed.
