Default 3 cell or 2 cell

Would it be possible to use a 3 cell 2100 lipo where a 2 cell 2100 lipo is suggested? I know it would require some changes in the setup somewhere like prop down or higher rated speed control.
The reason why is I want to use the batt. pack in another plane as well where 3 cell required.
Thanks for replies

Default RE: 3 cell or 2 cell

It will weigh a little more and obviously deliver more voltage, 7.4volts vs. 11.1 volts. So as long as you have a motor capable of handling that voltage, like a 12v motor, and an ESC that can as well, I don't think you should run into any problems. Just watch your COG as the 3 cell pack with be heavier.
