Curious, where did you see that 5S was doable?
As long as you get the hinges in and well soaked in CA or Epoxy to really hold in the slots - they pull out too easily.

If you go back in the thread - you will see what you are hinging to ... a very thin ply spar with only EPP helping it. I actually removed one section to photo for you guys to show my point.

I see that the models are actually available in 40, 48 and 55" versions ... and all have same construction.

As to 5S - I use 5S in my 55" Edge ... but I could use 5S in a 48" .. its down to capacity to get weight suitable and the KV of motor to match the pack voltage.
