Keep us posted. I hope these GensAce will also arrive in Europe.
But of course no problem to order them at HobbyPartz.

I got in a 5300mAh 6S 25C, 3300mAh 6s 25C and a 2200mAh 3S 25C
All batteries arrived at 3.84/3.85V per cell.
I'm using an iCharger 3010B and I've got my cell voltages calibrated to a Fluke DMM.
After initial charge up, The Internal resistances of the packs were:
5300mAh 6S: 1millohom per cell avg
3300mAh 6S: 2milliohm per cell avg
2200mAh 3S: 3millohm per cell avg

That's better than the nanotechs were fresh after the first charge.
I'll report the IR values after a couple break-in hovers on the helicopters.

Wow, those are some low IR's. These seem like they will take a charge at 8-10C with that low of an IR with no damage. I'll need a nuclear charger though to charge a 6s 5300mah at 10C though, but I'm sure my recently upgrade PL8(now 1344 watts) will do some justice. Now I just need to pick up a 550 to use the 5300 pack in

Seems like all but the larger batteries are gone. I've been flying the bigger ones on my 500 and 550 this weekend. All good so far.

I just received my 2 Gens Ace 6S 3300mah 25C lipos.

Needless to say, I'm impressed. Both packs min and max cell voltage are within 0.002 V of each other. Each cell was at 3.82 V give or take 0.001 V.

Each pack weighed in at 545g. 1 con.

I really like their construction with an aluminum plate on each side for protection. Can't wait to try them on my Protos.

Did you miss post #5 or does the link in it not work for you?


If you visit the thread on Gens Ace and the graphs make no sense what soever to you then perhaps use this link
