  • Bad Raven: Is the issue Turnigy or Turnigy Nano-Tech? I have found that mid-blue Turnigy tend to be low on their stated "C" discharge rating.

  • ched999uk: RaceDayQuads have some cheap but good batts out now. Josh B tested and stats say very good especially at price. HobbyRC have 1300mAh 4S just under £20. Not had luck with Turnigy lipos either!!

  • Reman: Just realised that I hadn't gone through my stored Li-Po's for about a month. I try to visually check them every Saturday, And prod the plugs with a multimeter about once a month. Todays seen 12 more bulging packs go out to the incinerator..... All but one was a bloody Turnigy! Part of me wan't to burn the rest now and just get a load more Tattu packs, But I've spent good money on these packs and wan't to at least get a little more use out of them. :(

  • Bad Raven: Pre MR's I used to buy a lot from J.Perkins. Their website showed all items and stock or due date, go to dealer and buy with confidence. Then they went all "lifestyle" and all the site had were pictures or people. I wasn't after people. I never bought again. Yes, you'd think they'd learn...........

  • ched999uk: Reman sounds like amazon search. I find it ok unitil you want to search by price then amazon falls apart.... You would think both companies would get it right...
    July 15, 2018, 16:54:55
  • Reman: It's strange. The original setup they had about 5 or 6 years back wasn't too bad (Except for them occasionally getting accounts hacked), But they changed it to the last one that was clunky and slow, Now they've replaced that with a flashier one that's also clunky and slow ?!?!?! Most companies learn from what they do wrong. I don't buy from HK half as much as I used to, Mainly because it takes forever to trawl through 100 pages of totally unrelated stuff while looking for something you were thinking about getting when you saw it there the previous week !!!

  • hoverfly: I don't think there is a search button on H/King. They updated the site and forgot to  relabel the search button with  Random bo##ocks..
    July 15, 2018, 09:47:35
  • Bad Raven: Agree - The Search is abysmal!!
    July 15, 2018, 08:40:52
  • Reman: I see HobbyKing's revamped their site again...... Shame they haven't made the search function work any better, Or worked out why the whole site goes slower than a pensioner in a Nissan Micra. :)

  • Reman: How thick is Google? You buy something online, Then for the next week you get targeted adds for the item you've just got?!?! That's the one item you're NOT going to be buying again at that point so it's wasted effort of there part. :)

New lipo testing
« on: November 27, 2017, 15:38:58 »
Got some sent some new lipo samples to test last week, gave them a fly at the oxford meetup.
Primeraly interested in the 850mah 4s to use with my Air-Ro (Zero G tried the 650mah on his sparrow)

Gave them another spin today, a bit cold, still effecting the lipos, but perform as well as any other lipo I use in these quads and much lighter (80 odd grams on the 850mah, that is over 20grams lighter than the tattu and 10grams lighter than the nanotech)

Thanks for letting me have a go with these at the weekend.  Having had some time to contemplate their performance I think they’re a really interesting product.  All the smaller packs were really suffering in the cold, but I think they performed pretty well. Definitely comparable to my tattus.

Another 650mah battery would be great tbh. At this stage it's only Tattu that has that specific size.

 :cool:, you know much about FPV batteries.

Since posting that, every Jack and his russel has started popping out 650mAh XT30 batteries.

Cheredanine, I take it that you were sent the AirJoules batteries? If so, they surely have something going for them on the weight side, which is critical on the mini / micro builds. Performance wise, they do suffer a bit quicker from the cold than the Tattu's does. I'm sure that as soon as the weather get's a bit warmer that they will be on par. For now though I think they are lacking a little bit on the lower end for punch and power supply.

Looking at getting some Turnigy Graphene's to try out. I'm sure they will be on the heavy side, but will be interested to see how the smaller mAh range performs, especially in the cold.

Hi mate,
Yes I was sent the air joules to try.
I use 850mah normally on my air ro. I would say the 850mah air joules is as good as the tattu but about 20g lighter. With regards to T Graphene, I use them on the air ro too, pretty sure they under spec the mah, the 700 mah (or may be 750) graphene weighs about the same as most 850mah and performs similarly, I have also recharged it with a level of mah that suggests it is in fact 850

Oh yes, agree with you there. Going the 500mAh route on the TG's might be an option for like for like comparison on the 650mAh range.

 :o There goes the bank card again...

I really need to get someone else to pay for these tests  :wack0
