A 6s 4-5000mAh is big for a 3D foamy so choice is limited. The only one that comes to mind is the new eFlite P2 Prometheus: http://www.e-fliterc.com/Products/De...=EFL10950#home

Not a cheap option though.

Lots more choice in balsa planes.

Not a big enough plane to take the batteries that you were talking about though... It's intended for 3000mAh batteries.

FMS say 6s 3300mAh..

It would be way too heavy for 3D with a 6s 4000mAh onboard, in fact even with the recommended 3300 battery it's an F3A pattern aerobatic ship not 3D.. To be fair FMS sell it as an F3A model and make no claims for 3D capability.

The Olympus is a great flyer and can take 4000mah battrries with ease. The link below doesn't show real 3D but good aerobatic capabilities.

The 55" EPP / Ply Edge / MXS / Slick from Hobby King are 4S to 6S machines.

They actually recc'd paired 3S 2200 Lipos to create a 6S pack. With a 4250 500Kv motor and 14x7 / 15x5 prop ...

They are the Skywings models ... cheap, fly superb ... just make sure you hinge well.

Here's mine on 5S ...
