Default turmoil with 1320 3 cells?

do people do this? does it ruin the wingloading or is it doable? i ask because those are the only batteries i have.

Yeah, it'll hurt how it flies big. On all foamies, weight is the difference between an awesome plane and a crappy one. Get a 3s 600-700mAh pack. Just a quarter ounce of these planes makes a differnce, 1.5 oz. between a 600-700 and 1320 is huge. Do you have the rimfire? If you do, you might even consider getting a 2s 730 pack for it, or else you'll have more power than you know what to do with.

im getting the rimfire, buying it from a friend. i really jsut didnt want to buy new batteries, since i already have these. i have a tribute with the same wingspan and i used these on it and it wasn,t to heavy.

well, that means that it will be about the same as my tribute and thats all i wanted. i really only like the foamy for straight hovering and torking practice. i don't care if the wings bend a bit when i pull up from a downline. but good advice, eventually, i will buy some smaller packs.. especially by winter, for indoor flying.

I just use Etec 3 cell 700's and they work great, very cheap too. I used them on my reflection and had great performance. [link=http://www.bphobbies.com/view.asp?id=A0320069&pid=U663750]Look here[/link]

i just finished two flights with the turmoil on 1320 3 cells. i now agree with you guys who said it will suck with them. hovers are unpredictable and need to be kicked around constantly. harriers are sinking and hard to hold at an even spot. i think this thing will be much better once lighter. sorry for being hard headed.. it's just that i am running out of money and hate to hear that i need more stuff. the only thing that worked great was knife edge. this plane will knife edge all around town.
