Here is the video from flight number 4 on the Slick. I'm still trying to get the feel for it but it came out alright. Make sure if you're going to watch it put it in 720HD because even then the quality isn't that great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAtZH...ature=youtu.be
Awesome flying as always man! I think you and this plane will get along juuuuust fine!

Seems like some people (including Ben Fisher) are liking the Glacier Batteries sold by EPBuddy....

Can't really comment on them as I haven't really heard anybody say "yea or nay"...

I've also come to really like the Haiyin batteries. They are a little heavier than the glacier and gens ace packs but they seem to be of a little better quality.http://www.haiyinstore.com/featured2...=204+&PID=225+

Thanks guys. I asked because I wondered if there was a trend of bad batteries lately that I may not know about. The "latest and greatest" batteries seem to come and go over the years....

i tried the genesis a while back. banana hobby had a free give away and i managed to get a 6s5000 pack. it was VERY heavy and when i flew with wamsy he said he noticed i was flying different due to the weight. in my blog there is a video with it. power was good, but nothing remarkable

I have been using the Zippy Compact 4s 35c 4500 mah and they have been working fine so far. I have about a dozen cycles on them with no issues. As soon as they are back in stock I'm going to pick up a few more.

+1 on the Glacier Lipo... top notch service from Dale at EP buddy. He replaced a pack that came with one cell that the IR came a little higher then normal. I didn't even asked him to... I was just asking if it would be ok a little high. Which he said to send it back and he would get me a new tested one. It was the only one out of over a dozen that I have ordered that came with a iffy cell. Try get Hobbypartz to do that. Other then that batteries perform great and weight is comparable to GensAce which I like too.

Nice flying Hone1er
