Hey guys, first let me say, don't order stuff online late at night, you'll either spend too much money or make a mistake on your order. ops: Last night I was trying to order a few 3S 2200mah 25C's from HobbyKing and unwittingly ordered the 2S version. I know the 7.4V won't be as powerful as the 11.1V. Question is, will 2S be enough to fly our parkjets or should I incur the cost of returning them and getting what I REALLY wanted to buy? I'm not even sure if it would be economically sound to even return them. Maybe they'd be ok in some of my lighter models? What y'all think?

Yes you`re right don`t buy at night I do it all the time.
You will be able to use 2s on light parkjets with a 7x5 prop.
If you can fit one in an 8x6 should do the trick.
Wot, no Depron?

Good to hear BB, I surely didn't want to return them. I'll order some props before it gets too late! I found myself almost pulling the trigger on a new transmitter last night that I can't afford right now and came to my senses before going for it, .

I have a 6S 5000mah 65C I still have to figure out what I am going to use it in. Power not a problem for me, it's the weight and size.

You need a nice little conventional plane now.

Geez Jeff that sucker must weigh a pound. Whatever your largest plane is, double the size, should be good.

I never was one for conventional, I could do nice little though.

Missing a 3S LiPo I did the maiden flight of my F-18 V3 with a 2S. It did fly and was able to climb too, but it was nothing like flying with a 3S.

Hey Merry Christmass Flyte!

Some guys drop down to 2-S bats and then prop up to larger Slow-Fly props for Ssssssslow flying.

I did that on FRC’s MK2 Alpha Jet and it flew just fine only Ssssssssslower
And on the 8th day God said: "Go NAVY",.. and it was good! Pray like everything depends on God. Prepare like everything depends on you.

Okay, I would have just sent the wrong ones back. It's kinda cold to fly anyway.. So today you had 45* and rain, huh?
Today I waited for the furnace tech to come in a.m. 'cause the humidifier on the furnace didn't seem to be working.. When I wanted to change the evaporator pad, it was dry and not grody like I expected it to be.. He checked it and said it was wired incorrectly. It was wired for a 2 wire system instead of a 3 wire system. So the water solenoid wasn't clicking open and allowing the water to go onto the drip tray.. Not my fault! So I don't have to pay $125
for the parts , but they had to order and everything will be in next week Thurs/Fri .. As long as the furnace still works..... I actually assumed that since it was a new install that everything was done correctly.. I guess that's why I wasn't charged anything... I actually forgot to change the evaporator pad last year when it was due, but it wouldn't have any bearing on the wiring error..
