Ouch. I wasn't trying to offend anyone. My apologies if that's how it was taken. I was under the impression you were quoting other sources and wouldn't be offended.

Now as far as the rest of the post that followed, if it's a genuine question I'll respond. If it was just a reactionary statement I'll disregard it.

We have all been there....no need to apologize. It happens and I think I have even done it to you myself... It's easy to take things the wrong way in text....

I just don't like the weight. 1600mah 3s 40c battery for both sky lipo=148g and cnhl=165g. I hope they last longer and pack a bit more punch for 18g more weight. I have been interested in them though.

CNHL are offering free shipping and time has been in line with other US vendors. Their WH is in California.

So about 5 days? I seen the free shipping so I'll definitely get a couple batteries since one of my two got destroyed today in my crash.

so ... 33... show me the big difference between in and out runners other than price? i still say a watts a watt , as long as u aren't making heat. i will give u that an inrunner in a alum housing MAY be able to be able to dissipate more heat, but a outrunner on a standoff ( ala don's ) has proven to match power to weight.

the one factor that u get and pay for in a inrunner is a factory balanced motor, typically.

Whatever you do ... it all still obeys Physics Laws ... you don't get anything for nothing. You may gain a little by increasing efficiency of motor by a few % points - but that's it.

In my view - the biggest gains are got by :

a) Better battery to provide the power needed
b) Clean efficient ducting.

correct, and most of the efficiency differences can be attributed to minor heating differences. one thing an inrunner does better is get the windings heat to the case of the motor for better heat sinking , IF the motor is in the airflow or in a alum housing. an outrunner is easier to cool using a standoff, no alum housing needed, so again, not a big difference overall.

the biggest efficiently gain is in dropping the kv to the magic point where minimum heating occurs , not from having an in or outrunner. , imo

I'm confused your talking about hk but I think your replying about the cnhl shipping time? Hobbyking has cnhl?

yes I meant Hong Kong wharehouse...I ordered from the HK wharehouse because at the time only the HK wharehouse had the 1300mah batts i needed. I figured I order all from there
