I ordered Lipos finally? What to expect?

Hey guys,
I just placed an order an Etec 1200 2s/2p battery pack and charger. What type of performance can I expect from my stock GWS mustang?

Expect an ear to ear grin. Also, be prepaired to rebalance your plane. Those cells are very light.

Expect a sore neck from combining the long flight time with the lighter AUW. It's more than anyone should go through. Send them to me and I'll take care of them for you

Seriously... you'll love 'em

Since your flights are going to be 3x longer, expect the motor to last for 1/3 the flights

What part of Texas are you in?

I'm with dreamer. The plane will perform a little to spritely for your mustang (it does in mine). I would hate for you to crash your plane, maybe you should send them to me instead.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the encouragement. It's scary that I might want to order some more - I have a 16 cell beast that might get pretty expensive.

Tres,
I'm in Austin - where's Forney? Is that your Harely? Shoot me a PM I've got a few bikes myself.
