Hi
That aircraft is setup for dual packs only in the stock setup
The following is a list of accessories required to make the NexSTAR
EP Select operational. Order numbers are in parentheses.
(2) 8-Cell 9.6V 3600 mAh NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride)
battery packs (GPMP0362)

Hobbico Dual Peak NiMH Charger (HCAP0255)
The NexSTAR EP Select can also be fl own with a 5-cell
Lithium-Polymer (LiPo) set up. If you decide to go with LiPo
batteries, you will need the following items:

*2S 3200mAh 7.4V 20C Discharge w/Balance (GPMP0622)

*3S 3200mAh 11.1V 20C Discharge w/Balance (GPMP0623)

(*Use them together for a 5S set-up
Hope this helps
Take care
Yours Hank

I called product support and they mentioned that you can also use 1 5s battery instead of 2 packs, they mentioned something about residing the esc to just run one wire to fly but I didn't u derstand what they meant when I actually saw the esc photo

The ESC is set up like a normal one with a positive and negative battery lead, but it's got two Deans connectors in series rather than just one plug. To convert it to a single-plug setup, just cut out one of the male plugs on the ESC lead and splice the wire together.

Oh, and this is my first WattFlyer post
