You may find this calculator (http://scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/_top_speed.html) handy.

That's a really bad idea. Never do that if you can avoid it.

Electric motors and ESCs are usually much more efficient at 100% or 0% throttle, than anything in between.

The best alternative...

I do. In fact, that's the main reason I'm not buying an 8ight 2.0 yet, because they take away all the fun of building it.

I'm pretty sure I couldn't use the exact 90 degree horn position, because it didn't allow for even servo horn movement in both directions (same problem as you described).

Speed Freak, you can think of potential energy a battery can store as the product of its mah rating by the number of cells.

So, your 4300 mAh 5S can hold only 8.6% more energy than the 3300 mAh 6S...

Hey, how come I never heard of this? YouTube videos make it seem somewhat realistic (much better than the VRC Demo I've tried).

Looks interesting, I wouldn't mind trying it out...

I don't get how they expect to sell that thing when it's based on the older 1.0 chassis. But I'd still rather prefer to use my own electronics/choice of kit (although theirs isn't too bad it seems)....

In very general terms, total battery power capacity is its capacity (mAh) times voltage (# of cells).

In that sense, a 2S 4500mAh is equivalent to a 3S 3000mAh.

However, that's only true if you...

Well, as others have said, the length increase is minimal, so I think it's still up to the driver and how he handles it. But the other improvements are nice.

Anyway, I just wanted to put a 2.0...

Right, I guess the price is another benefit of going for 1.0.

But technologically, isn't the 2.0 completely superior to 1.0?

Cuz I sold my 1.0 to get a 2.0 for an electric conversion... :P

Wait, why are you even considering Losi 8ight 1.0 roller instead of 2.0?

The only reason to get 1.0 is if you want to put the kit yourself... right?

Am I missing something?

Would anyone care to venture a guess, knowing Losi's history, how likely are they to release an 8ight 2.0 in Kit form?

Or am I waiting for something that'll never happen... :rolleyes:
