Same duty on a 3 cell pack I got 35km range on sat.
Extra cells mean more range as less volt sag.
Sam, .. not meaning to be "picky" but, you are using confusing and incorrect terminology.
A "Cell" in battery terminology is a single electro-chemical unit.
What you are calling a cell is in fact a pack of 8 cells. ( the "8" refers to the number of cells in the pack.)
Each of your 8s packs has 8 "cells" inside .
Sorry, but its best to be clear on this especially if you are explaining to new members.
PS, ..just a reminder that these motors also run quite happily (and a little faster), on a 10s set up.
