More to this

you have to consider wing loading. Lift over comes gravity thing too much weight and at best you have a dog. Bigger engine plus more weight out come not good.

Series?

using a y adapter is not wiring your batteries in series. That is parallel. Remember voltage is series is additive.

More info
