This performance is shared by the Hyperion Samson II 70e. And, like
all Hyperion models, the Samson II features the very best of materials, finish,
and attention to detail. Easy “ARF” building, superb performance

of a brushless motor is so flexible that it can be driven from 5S to 8S lipo
packs. Our many test flights have demonstrated that 5S is recommended for sports

not recommended unless you already own lipos for this configuration. The lower
weight of 5S or 6S suits the Samson II better.
