On a 370 the Pro 40" 3DFoamy models will fly well.

so the 1350 mah battery wont be to heavy on that shockflyer? I see they recommend a 400 or something ridiculous like that.

400-700, you have to keep those little planes really light. On my pro and super planes I run 1200-1500mah packs, but they are larger
