1800mah is 1.8Amp x 45c you get 81amp current draw continue

For exempel if you have

Gens 1450mah 45c = 65amp
current draw continue

Also x3 is backward heavy 1800mah is better cg but not perfect even better if you can modification as my x3 show you photo

Its best cg for me now

Nanotech 1550's and Gens Ace 1400. Both fit great and perfect CG can be attained by sliding fore/aft on the battery plate. I find that perfect spot then secure them to the plate with clear packaging tape. 1 plate per pack. Works great for me and makes for very quick battery changes.

The pics in this thread are the original frame - I don't know that the 1800s will fit. I ran the Gens Ace 1450 maH in that frame

The new X3L frame has the battery on top - you can run larger packs

I'm using infinity 1400 6S 90C packs. Same size/weight as gens ace 1400 40c, but much cheaper.

Gensace 1800mah 45c. Had to modify front of frames to get cog right and use strong double sided tape to mount battery on the tray as batt straps won’t fit. No room.
