I'm currently building a Talon (v3), mainly waiting for parts.
While looking for high capacity batteries I found out two things; There are a lot of brands, and prices are still steep in the high-cap regions.
I've also seen a few people on the Tube using 18650 cells, but none of those explain why.
Does anyone here have experience with these custom 18650 packs?
And which 'cheap' brands of standard 5~12A 4S seem to work best?
I'm going to use an Emax GT3526 710KV swinging a 13x6.5 prop, which should draw no more than 47 amps at peak load. I'm aiming to stay under 3 kg AUW, expecting about 4~5 amp draw at cruise speed. Or is that not attainable?
