Hunka Hunka Burning Love Posted June 30, 2016 Share Posted June 30, 2016 I've seen a couple of people swapping out their 18650 cell packs for LiPo ones. How safe would doing this be? It appears that they give a bit longer range? I snuck a peek in the Finnish Local Meet thread using Google Chrome Translate, and I found this photo of a Gotway MCM4 HS. I think EUC Extreme uses LiPo packs as well. I believe that's a 4S 14.4V 10000 mAh Turnigy power pack used in remote helicopters most commonly. In series you get 28.8 V so how does one bump up the voltage to the 60-67 volts needed for these EUCs? Maybe there's two more packs on the other side making it 57.6V, but is that enough? It sounds like you get a lot more range with these packs, but are there any dangers due to the different chemistry and properties of LiPo vs LiIon? The price is about $60 per pack so four would cost $240 total which isn't too bad in cost. Okay you Finns - give us your secrets!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
