I’ve just got hold of 12 x 18650 3.7v 5000mah Li-ion batteries.
I currently run 2 x 5000mah 11.1v Li-po’s in series so, 22.2v 10000mah. I get a reasonable distance out of one charge with an SK3 230kv motor.
Speed really isn’t a big thing for me and I’ve had my setup (at one point) running off just one 11.1v Li-po, which was fine for top end (for me). What is important though is the distance I get out of one charge.
Would the following configuration with the Li-ion cells be OK for me?
I’m thinking 14.8v is enough, and the fact that there’s 3 in parallel should mean I get a good distance?
