I am upgrading my Pursuit. What would be best. 4s lipo in parallel or just a single 4s lipo. I would like to run 4s lipos. Lipos in parallel would balance the boat. What would anyone recommend.
My setup is Leopard 4074 2150kv, octura 442 prop, Turnigy 180amp w/c esc

i use both ways and can't really tell a difference as the batteries are mounted in the center of the boat.

I also run my Pursuit with the 4074 on 4S 5S and 6S. I config my pack
on 3S5000 and 2S5000, get 2 of each then u can connect it in series mix and match the pack to get 4S 5S and 6S. Having 2 seperate packs help with your CG setup. Dont use Deans..use the bigger bullet connectors. My system pulls 120 amps with 6S with the El Cheapo plane HK200 ESC add a watercool jacket. Great with 5S but gets hot on 6S.

No, not enough voltage. I use to run this boat on 2x 2s lipos in series with leopard power, I started with making battery trays which ran down either side of the factory battery( which the 180a esc sat on) tray what I found with this was the boat while fast, was also unstable. I then made a few changes & ran the batteries down the centre line of the boat....much more stable & more consistent over a run.

Rule of thumb here is to run heavier items down the centre line, I think from memory I had my CG point at around 250mm from the transom.

I do miss that boat....It always made me smile everytime I ran it

Anyone know which program card actually works with the Turnigy Marine 120A esc. I bought the Turnigy TG-Prog from this website, with the 2.0 software version with face plate stating 12 program settings(timing is setting No 9), but it will only access the first 4 basic settings???
