AAAAAAAGH!! Need more batteries. Just got back from the soccer complex. Flew all 5 packs all the Edge 540 and CY got was a tiny little crack on the nose. That was from practicing nose in "landings" LOL. Got run off from the lower field by the soccer moms had to go up on the hill. Thats OK cause the wind was my friend today. Didn't try to really practice anything just flew and had fun. With the wind at about 5-10 mph it was just right. I even got it to hover for a few seconds till it fell off. Too cool. Got more packs coming from TH.

Order some gens ace packs. Great packs especially at less than 4 bucks a pop.

The connector specs on the site are incorrect.

The Gens 2S 450's come with JST connectors.

I have 18 of them.

Had 22 but gave 4 to a flying buddy for his Extra Slick v1.

Love these batteries.

Where do they ship from? Got a few on order from TH. I had too fun today for it to end so quickly. I want it now. More fun! And my planes came home with only a small crack on the nose of the CY. I hit a tree a light post and oh yeah, the ground. But I'm getting the hang of it. Did inverted, rolls, harriers, I think thats what its called. Come in real slow and just sort of float down level. And yes I still have the smile on my face.

Just went to the hobbypartz web site. Looks like they dont do the paypal thing.

AAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

Wish I'd known that!



I looked at them, and instead ordered a bunch of nano-techs from HK USA.

They're ok, but I get only about 3-minute flights on my XSlick with the 9" prop.

The Gens probably would do better.........????

My orders ususally take 5 or 6 days from time I place order to receipt. I'm just across the Mississippi river from St. Louis, MO.

I get 6 minutes (with lights) on a 1700kv motor with GWS 8x4DD.

I think you should get at least 5 minutes if you are on stock TH setup.

to london... at least i couldnt find any shipping option for less... thats a SHAME because gens ace would be THE cheapest from there for me apart from shipping but even if i order a single 2s450, i get a 35$ shipping... i wouldnt mind around 15-20 shipping, so i can order a bunch of batts and be happy but 35 for a single batt...
