Can I use 6S packs in series, instead of 12S packs on Alta X?
6S LiPo packs with sufficient current delivery can be used to fly Alta X, but Freefly does not recommend this solution for a few reasons:
- It is easy to make mistakes when combining cells in parallel and series, and mistakes can be dangerous (fire, damage to Alta X etc).
- The streamlined workflow we developed using 2 batteries is compromised and the poor drone tech will frown at the task of charging and balancing 4 batteries per flight instead of instead of 2.
- It can be difficult to mount batteries to the Alta X which are not the right size / shape, whereas the Alta X was designed to easily mount / dismount 12s hard case batteries.
Be safe out there!
