based on more evidence gathered yesterday evening, the higher amp hour (mine is a 16Ah) multistar multirotor packs by turnigy are definitely lacking a bit of oomph. At around 23 volts i topped out at 20mph on twin NTM 270kv 5060s using a 15/36 pulley ratio and a pair of Favourite 6S escs. My ESC settings are all maxed out basically.
when i had an older Flier type 8S ESC in there with those two motors and the old custom 6S lipo pack in there, i was seeing close to 30mph consistently, and at one point i went over 31. When I had that pack in there with the Favourites, i was seeing similar results, usually topping out around 27 or 28ish.
Do you think its something special with the multstars or is this just what 10C feels like?
And where is the amp rating listed on these packs? It makes it difficult to know what C is so i can figure out what 10C would give me. Burst is allegedly 20C on these packs.
somebody actually commented on instagram about this too. I think @cmatson also had a build with one of these recently. What was the ride on that board like?
