Hi folks!! My pal got the grayson parkjet yesterday. But the guy whom he got it from didn't mention any lipo setup.
after looking up different sites, I am thinking about using this one

For that 2200kv 50gram motor, depending on your application a 3s 1500-2200mah lipo would probably be best. Which plane will you be using this in?

I've used the Grayson combo in pusher jets weighing between 12 and 20 ounces, and have used everything from a 3S 1300 to 3S 2200. It really depends on the plane you're putting it in. Obviously, the bigger the battery the longer the duration.
