Expect to see 85-90amps with that battery.
That Zippy is a very good value for money. Only minus is 1C charge rate and the balance wires which are hard and you have to take care bending them around or they will snap off the battery.
I fly this setup in the same size Mig-15.
Anlucas...you are right about snapping balance wires...has happened twice...what I do now as soon as I get a new Zippy is that I put a "zip tie" around the top of the battery to tie down the balance wires so I never pull on them directly. Has worked great. I ran out of zip ties and just put electrical tape on one battery.
I charge my Zippy's (all my batteries at 1C regardless at home) at almost 2C at the field and they do fine. I set my charger at max which is 5 amps and it charges in about 30 minutes.
