Hey tracknoob thanks for your reply! And as for the comments well I got no problem with that. It's kinda ruthless to just jump on a thread and ask for the good stuff and I am guilty, knew it going in, but I can't wait to fly this thing and 888 pages would take some serious time to read! Sounds like the 240 Hyperions were a lucky guess though. I'll try to contribute a little flight report after Saturday.

Cool! I will order one to try it out as I lost a MiniAviaton 210 in the snow today . Did you get the 180s or 240s? How do you like?

I'm in Tokyo now and I'm actually heading to Akihabara (electronics area of Tokyo) tomorrow to visit a few hobby shops. If you guys want me to see if I can find something I'm happy to bring it back and ship it to you. Just shoot me a PM.

Got 4 240s, tight fit, removed shrink wrap and they fit with enough wiggle room, plus much lighter. You can kinda tell it's a little more heavy if you really think about it(really think about, more self fulfilling than anything), but it's the same lovely beast you know!

Hmm I wonder if the 180s are too "wimpy" but the 240s may be heavier than I Iike. I will just order one to test out. 12.50 isn't bad anyways.

Wow, I check my usual 3 online place for Hyperions and you're right, they are all backorder!!!! I guess Hyperion didn't thought they would be so popular!!! It took them soooooo long to make them (just some connectors after all), and now, they are B/O....

Sorry!

I would take you up on that, if they have some I would take a pair of whichever they have in stock?

My Hyperion 180's give me 5min moderately aggressive flights. Unlimited vertical thru the whole flight, putting about 100mah back in. So, I could go longer, but 5min is enough for me. Depends on how long you want to fly I guess. Definitely not wimpy.

I'm just working on converting a T28 Trojan and a Sukhoi 26XP to a 2S brushless setup. So I wanted a 2S connector that would work on all three planes.

My plan was to use 2 240(or 180) mah Hyperion 1S flat packs, cut the leads and wire them in series on a 2S male JST-XH connector to make a 2S battery. I've made a connector for charging on my AC6 that has a male 2 pin JST male connector for the charge lead, a male JST-XH connector for the balance lead and a female JST-XH connector for the battery.

I'm going to replace the stock connector on the Beast 3D and replace it with a 2S JST-XH Female connector and do the same on the T28 and XP that have been converted to 2S Brushless.

I'm looking for pros and cons. Any comments would be appreciated.
Turboparker(Joel) - Any thoughts
I've converted most of my UM fleet to run on micro bullet connectors. It works out well because then I can run singles cells, or 2 cells in parallel or series depending on how I want them. I started doing this when I converted my sukhois to 2s and wanted to have the batteries ran in series but not stacked together so that I could still get them to mount flush with the bottom of the suk. I've continued with the micro bullets for all of my other UM's except for my helis and my son's night vapor, those I leave with the stock eflite/blade connectors.

That was painless!

I just ordered from...

http://www.aircraft-world.com/shopexd.asp?id=6887

Took about 5 minutes, shipping was 2.50, the site says it could take between 5 to 14 days to get them

PS,

I am new to flying fixed wing, and I have spent a lot of time on heli boards, but this is by far the most active thread I have followed, with great info! Thanks guys...

Awesome! Sorry to have even commented -- best to follow policy others mentioned, if not wanting to give full reply, just remain silent.

Yeah, the Hyp 240s are popular. I went with a pair of MiniAviation 210s for my V1 Beast, and they impressed me so much over the stock item that I ordered some more for V2, so now I have enough on hand to enjoy much longer outings with the Beast.

Would love to see your flight report, always interesting to get new impressions. I took my 3D Beast out this morning and just had a terrific time with it. I have been hand launching a lot and plopping in grass, but today, I finally did all ROG takeoff and landings, and while not all were pretty, the plane came home with zero damage, and that last landing I stuck it, perfect touchdown, roll out and taxi and it felt soooo good.

Wait until you get a chance to taxi out and take off with this thing -- it is eerie how it maintains directional stability both on the ground and in the air.

EDIT TO ADD: Just took four off the charger, after having 5 full minutes of 3DBeast with V1 motor and 5043 prop, doing sport flying on each, consisting of loops, rolls, inverted, some flying slow, harriers, and circuits around the field -- I put 388 total Mah back in, so that was a bit less than 100 mah average per battery.

quick flight report for the curious....

Well, I am quite impressed. It handles like a low-wing (eg. T-28). Rudder/coordinated turns optional. Very easy to fly, take off and land. The 240 hyperion had to be placed right over the CG mark (shoved back about 1cm behind top of opening). throws are extreme only when fully defected. If you are a beginner that has flown any aileron plane, go for it. No suprises, plenty of power, tracks well, solid proportional feel on the sticks.

snjbird,

The pain may kick in as soon as the Novocain wears off.

Below is an email I received from A-W after I ordered 2) Hyp UMX cells...


"Dear Roger,
>
> The Japanese Post informed us without prior warning that we could no longer ship batteries via Japan Post services. We had hoped for a reversal, but have just been told the decision is final. Instead, we were able to secure a large-volume contract with FedEx in order to continue shipping batteries.
>
> For your order, we can ship via FedEx for the total amount of $13.80. Subtracting the amount you paid for shipping already, that would require an additional payment of $11.30. If you agree, would you please complete the Paypal payment request for additional cost we have just sent to you.
>
> Best Regards,
>
> Brian
> International Sales Manager, Air Craft
> http://aircraft-world.com"






All-E will probably be receiving their shipment tomorrow.

FYI

http://www.rcdude.com/servlet/the-Ba...-CX/Categories


seems to have a decent inventory or atleast has been able to fill all of my orders to date. I just order 4 ea. 180 mAh and 6 ea.240 mAh cells today along with some props and they shipped today.

Randy really makes a point of shipping all orders received prior to 3PM the same day.
