Default 7.4 volt upgrade for Iflyer Mini-heli

Well, if you flew the motors off your mini-heli like I have, then I think this might interest you. Like i said, I cooked the motors in my I-Flyer and never really liked the idea of flying for 2 minutes and then letting the motors cool down. The duration and power was never that great, so I changed the motors to the GWS N-20 size (get the "EDP10-B" version) and use a 2-cell 340 Lipo connected to a JST connector . I did change the LED to one of the groovy multi-color jobs found at Dollar stores too. I tested the PCB and it handles the voltage increase with no issues. The results: enough power to lift small objects, it climbs like crazy and I fly for around 10 minutes. Plus, I can alter my C of G so I can move around the house with some pretty impressive foreward speed. The motors are warm after a long sorte but just keep going. And I was going to buy an $400 XRB...this cost me $45+$15 for the new motors. Oh, but I can't go sideways, darn it!
Cheers,
Foamio
