    Hi Jeff:
    Nice and smooth. Weather looks pretty grim, though -- almost as bad as Portland, Oregon.

    I suspect you're going to get questions about the configuration of the heavy lifter, though. Care to share? :)

    Have a good holiday.
    Andy.

    Hi Andy,

    The weather was a bit wet yesterday, but alas I'm off to Vegas for a bit of Vitamin D.

    For the heavy lifter I get around 10 minutes with the Scarlet, plus she flies like a dream with the new FC, esc/motor, and props.
    I'll let Tabb give the details on the bits and pieces.

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    Interesting, Glad I didn't spend my $$ yet!:) How much longer before its release? what's the power source rating?

    Hi Howard, Jeff's is setup for 4S packs, we will have a 6s version as well. Trying to make versions that allow people to use legacy batteries etc if they want to. I am running dual 4S 9ah packs on mine right now and getting nice long flight times with everything staying cool.

    Thanks!

    That's really great, 9-10 mins running dual 8000mAh 4s packs fully rigged with a scarlet. Possibly 15-18mins with 5DIII/16-35mm and dual 5000mAh 4s packs.

    Now the question is, are the 4s and 6s builds two separate rigs or will we have both options from a single build?
