4S on 3DR Y6? over watt for motors?


I'm curious how many people are using 4S batteries with their Y6 and how it performs. I was planning on trying a couple 4S batteries, but whenever I do any calculations on ecalc with a 4S battery, it says over power (260w vs 200w rating for the 850kv motors)


could this be right? or am I not entering the correct information?

  • i'm trying this battery out - anyone have any experience with it? 

    Turnigy nano-tech 6000mah 4S 25~50C


  • thanks for the input. would you guys suggest 5000mah or 6000 mah? I'm looking at the turnigy nanotechs.

    I tried using 3S and could not get enough lift, so I switched to 4S. (Brushless gimbal attached) I'm still tuning and trying to get a stable flight. My Y6 is a conversion from a 3DR Hex.
  • I am using 4s 5000's on my hex but have the larger black motors.

    It's been working well for me so far. Motors are slightly warm after a flight but far from hot.
