    So it is basically the same as my Turnigy 6S 5000 Heavy Duties.

      Is this overkill for an Avanti S?

      "Overkill" for one person may be underkill for another. How long do you want to fly for? How do you generally fly - slow and easy or "balls to the wall"? I can lope around on a 5000mah HD with 1/2 flaps for 10 minutes. Why did I do that? Just to see how long it'll go for. When fly "normal", it'll safely go for 5 minutes. If I go all out, I might get 3:30. You have to qualify what you mean by "overkill".

        Pretty much. I guess the posted weights are just a guideline.

          I would say WOT for 70% of the flight. The "overkill" was more about the higher 70C rating- not sure if the Avanti S would benefit. I'm also comparing only Admirals, so their 5000mah is 732g vs the Carbon 5100mah at 866g. I was hoping someone had tried the Carbon in the Avanti S and could chime in?

            OK, I'll let someone who's used it in an Avanti S. Personally, you can never have enough "C". Even the best batteries are pushing only just over 1/2 the C rating they indicate. But, if you're OK with the regular Admiral, nothing wrong with those, either.

              I will likely be trying one in a new Red Avanti S next weekend.

                On the Freewing F-4 a new Admiral Carbon 6S 5100mAh battery will CG at 190mm from the wing root if the battery is all the way forward to where the canopy stops it. If this battery performs as good as it looks we’ve got something

                  I couldn’t wait for the Avanti S so I ordered an L-39 and the Admiral Carbon 5100. This will be my first 6s battery and edf so I won’t be able to provide a good comparison.

                    And it's the fact you can have almost full power for the whole run ... not run longer as i see it with this carbon
