    Guinea Pig with xt60 splitter setup

    I am running a XT60 splitter to two BLHeli Series 30A ESC and they are powering powerpack C motors. I was planning on running a 4s 2250mAh to power both motors.

    Power Pack B Twin on Mini Guinea?

    I'm new to flying and I'm building the Mini Guinea from plans. Long story short, today at my local hobby store, I bought the wrong power pack. They have a no refund policy so I doubt they will take it back. Any way I can make this work? or Am I just screwed.

    Guinea Pigs

    So, I have an idea... Seeing the pun jet inside the Guinea Pig got me thinking. I thought it would be cool to see the Giant Guinea Pig, with a folding wing Guinea Pig inside, and inside the (regular sized) Guinea Pig would be a Pun Jet. When all dropped, all three would have their own rockets on...

    Run the FT Guinea pig on a 4 cell battery?

    Would this be too much for the escs? I'm using the recommended C power packs sold from the ft store.

    Is a 4 channel receiver enough for the PUN JET?

    Hey everyone, So, I wanna build a Guinea Pig with Pun Jet this summer, and I already have a 4 channel receiver from my FT Flyer. It's clear to me that the Guinea Pig will need at least a 5 channel receiver, but what about the Pun Jet? I mean, it only has 4 channels: ailerons & elevators...
