It would be cool, the main prob is to find out all this batteries for a good price, at the moment looking for this RC packs: http://www.ebay.it/itm/11-1V-3S-2200mAh-20C-LiPoly-Battery-for-Trex-450-helicopter-free-shipping-/140719672317?pt=RC_Modellbau&hash=item20c38bcbfd#ht_2004wt_1189
I could dissassemble them and wire up a 12s 8.8Ah pack for about 100€, it isn't really too much, but at I'm a student and at the moment I really can't buy them (I shoud also buy a 12s lipo charger, so almost 120€ more).
Maybe I'd look for a sponsor
