Is that for 4 cells? or 6 cells/LIPO?

I was told for USVTA 17.5 with 4 cells are about 3.5 to 3.8. For LIPO/6 cells..4 and above.

Just checking....

Its the gearing recommendation from Novak for a starting point per their website. These motors have no problem all the way to 4.5 from my experience.
