I have not done it.
But may be “ 1202.5 11000-12000KV Motors or 1103/1104 might do it”

A good 18650 will weight anywhere from 42-48grams ...as they are 2000-3000mAh. while a standard 350mAH 1S Lipo for Whoop weighs merely 8 grams.

1S Nano Quad using 18650 are totally a different setup up 11xx or 12xx BL motor, and stronger / bigger CF frame to support 2.5-3" prop.

You should be looking for Rekon Long Range FPV setup

or similar with 3D printed frame ( not as durable)

They are reported to have pretty long endurance of 20+ minutes of flight ..

Thanks very much for your valuable inputs @sim_tcr and @ujjwaana. In my ongoing search I did come across the Rekon 3 and it really interests me as well, however very few parts available for me to be able to build one, and sourcing the Rekon 3 from abroad is like a distant dream Grin Hence was trying to check if any of you veterans have managed to build one with locally available parts or by modding locally available drones. My only reason to steer towards the 18650s is the lower price point, and I dont fly much acro or race style as well.
Thank you once again for your inputs, much appreciated  Hats Off
