    Thanks for the quick reply. I thought it should be possible. Unfortunately nothing now happens when I plug in the batteries Not even a beep. Is there a fuse or something that might be blown?

    You may have to get external LVC detectors for each pack and shut off the "LiPo" mode in the esc for it to work right, or it's going to think it's hitting LVC when it shouldn't. The ESC works off math of total voltage, but only works with 4S or 6S voltage. Using 5S is like having overcharged 4S or low charge 6S. I have a feeling it will hit LVC thinking your running 6S when your packs aren't low yet.
