Thread: J-Power F-5

    J-Power F-5

    Hey guys. I'm a fan of the F-5 airframe -- I've recently purchased the StarMax F-5, and the J-Power F-5. I'm enjoying them both, as they are GREAT flyers!

    However, I'm somewhat disenchanted with the flight times limited to about 5 minutes. The J-Power F-5 comes with a 1300 mAh 20C 3s LiPo, and I'm wondering if the airframe can support a 2200+ mAh 3s LiPo. If so, I could almost double my flight time. I'm thinking I can remove the nose gear servo, and hog out some foam for the larger battery.

    Please let me know if this is modification that has been successfully accomplished.

    Thank you for providing such great flying aircraft!

    Update -- I've modified the airframe to accept a 3s 1500 mAh LiPo, with great results. I haven't had the nerve to try a 3s 2200 mAh LiPo, but it DOES fit. :)

    Cool, How much extra flight time are you getting?
