Interesting to look around the Twisted site and see the new Lipo's they have in stock. Gives us some clue's as to what is coming up next
So i need to set timer to 4 minutes. okay. why do i need to watch the times, will it get hot or just suck out to much battery and puff it ?

From all the info that is out there the crack yak lite might do outdoors but not likely. I'm sure some one will fly it outdoors, probably me if I'm feeling crazy. It'll be interesting see what comes after the yak lite.

Think most flyers keep the times down to keep from puffing their packs and making a plane into a nice melted pile of foam. At 4 minutes I put about 80 to 85 back into the pack at the charger, sometimes more. Which can be a bad thng. Still getting used to lipos and the new tech.

Here ya go, 160g ready to fly, more info in the Lite CY thread. At this weight it will be flyable outside, but shine indoors.

How did you get yours so quick Azarr? are you part of the team now? they aren't even on the site yet are they?

Nice job. Can't decide if I like the Green Orange one or the Purple Blue one best.
