Fingers crossed the weathers good tomorrow.
Ah, you'd rather hit some pole or yourself than hit LVC, right?

I believe I have read a while ago that one can fly over 10 minutes with the Champ with 160's, so it must draw less current. And the difference is most noticable with high currents. One comment on Hobby King on the Turnigy 160 says it can only deliver full capacity at 10C. At 15 or 20 C discharge the capacity is 150 mah at most. So if you stay below that figure, you may not notice much difference. But in a Solo Pro, it's like day and night.

I need 10 to 15 % less throttle for hover with Intellect. And when I fly alternating between Turnigy and Intellect, I find that after a Turnigy I need to ease up on the throttle, or before I know it I find my bird above the trees. When I take a Turnigy after an Intellect, I almost crash into the ground on FFF because I need to adjust to having to mash the throttle stick further up to maintain altitude. And flight times for Turnigy 160 hardly ever exceed 5 minutes, while with the Intellect 130 I easily get over 6 minutes. If you loaded the battery so I couldn't see which one you put into my heli, and then handed me the TX, I would within 10 seconds know which battery I had in the heli.

But 15 dollar for one battery is a rip off.

I think what he means is that your Dawgie looks kinda scrawny. A bit like a startled Elf - but I'm sure she's gorgeous just the same...

Stal, the champ will float in dead stick, it doesn't need power at all. With my nanotech 160's at full throttle the entire flight I can get 12 minutes flight time with with just enough power to bring it in for a landing within 30 seconds. I get 9 minutes on the p51 with full throttle out of the same batteries. On the p51 though, 9 minutes of fast flight is about its limit. I never get the pulsing sound from the p51 as these batteries are full power right up to the end and boom they are done.

Anyways, you can get them dirt cheap from hk when they are in stock.

Well he just had a bath in that picture and he was standing up, which gives an odd look...

Anyway... you guys do realize that, if you see an increase in performance with a new battery, it means the old one was inadequate. If you take two batteries with adequate performance, you won't notice any difference, even if one of them is higher quality.
