Default Doubling ... Tripling up LiPo packs ?

OK.. before anyone gets wrong idea ... my main point here is to get people to post their experiences so anyone looking to do this can gain some advice / info to help.

Lets take my LiPo inventory ......... I have literally a box full of 3S packs, mostly in the 2200 size... 25C

I am looking at maybe putting together a model that will take a 6S capable motor and that means 6S LiPo ... so why not double up some of my 3S jobbies to get the required.

Care of course has to be in the main wiring going to ESC as now we are talking over 22V etc. that with maybe 20 - 30A is a lot of power ...
The LiPo's series connection has to be made with care as well ... and of similar good grade wire.

So I'm now asking for examples of models ... type, size, weight along with some battery, motor, ESC details etc.

This will go a long way to help those venturing into this arena ...

It can also assist those who are considering altering a moderate sized or larger IC engine model to E-Power.
