"I'm using a 3cell pack in the front, and 2 3cells packs (one on each wing). I just added 21 gr on the tail to equilibrate. The cells on the wing are on the cg line, so they dont induce any unbalance.  I will make a photo tomorrow to show…"

"I have yet to setup apm in mine and still flying it rc, but I have flown with a 3700 lipo and no issue just moved the battery back to re balance CG, however a 8 amp pack does sound very large, but I had seen on a few other posts on forums…"

"How are you getting a 4000-8000mAh pack into this little plane. You must have had to put tons of weight in the tail. Does it not get a little hard to fly at those weights? "

"Today i flew the plane on a 45km path, it took 1h20 minutes to complete. The Amps draw was around 3A mean value, a total of 4500mAh used out of a 8100mAh li ion (18650PF) pack. I stoped because the plane had no power to keep flying. I believe the li…"

"I just weighted the plane. It's 1100gr AUW. Today i did a 10k flight. Flying at 10m/s airspeed the draw is about1.5A to 2.5A except for the takeioff of course. "

"As you can see, the pixhawk takes half the place on the cockpit, esc goes up front with the x8r receiver, 915 telemetry radio goes just next to the servos (i made a hole to pass the antenna). Airspeed sensor is on one wing away from the prop…"

Brady D replied to Jacob Densmore's discussion Flyzone Calypso as platform
"Do you have any pictures or the setup? I ask because I now have a calypso but have not starting adding the pixhawk in yet. While there is a lot of volume upfront it seems like it would become too nose heavy with the pix and a battery. "

"Hey, i'm using this calypso as platform with a pixhawk inside.  It flies great. I'm using a 3S2700 pack I made with panasonic li ion. I'm getting 2.5A current on cruise flight at 10m/s (airspeed).  It can fly at least 35 to…"

"So has there been any success with the Calypso as a platform. I would be interested in seeing setups and knowing what kind of flight times they are getting "
