Compatible 3S lipo for X350

Just received a compatible 3S Turnigy Nanotech from the Hobbyking USA warehouse, for $6.63:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=20417

this battery does come a different connector, included is the JST BEC connector, whereas the stock battery is equipped with a Deans Style T-Type connector, so you would need to either change connector or use an adapter.

It's almost an exact match overall dimensions, the Nanotech is rated for 25C Constant discharge and 40C Burst discharge so better than the stock pack, and approx. 1/3rd the cost.

Great find but I need the adapter. I searched HK and I found this:

Is this the adapter I need? Thanks

No, that won't work, you need a JST female and a T-Type female, if you know how to solder, it's easily made.Or, just change the connector to a Female Deans T-Type

I checked again HK but there is no such an adapter listed. Do you have by any chance an online address for such an adapter? Thanks

These are 180 sized motors?

If so, anyone try the Xtreme 180 SE motors?

Xtreme 180 motors have been so-so in other aplications. The favorite 180 motor was from Aero-Nutz, but they have had a bug up their backsides lately and don't want to supply their dealers at reasonable prices and availability. SO, we who fly Lama 4's and CX-2's are talking more and more about going brushless. In the case of Xtreme 380 motors on the beloved HBFP, the 4-in-1's were on the hairy edge with a stock motor in them let alone an aftemarket one. In some cases, the Xtreme 380 blew the 4-in-1's due to a little too much current draw. There can also be a problem when replacing the brushes on Xtreme motors. They don't always want to seat well.

No,Hobby King hasn't used the T Type connector for a long time now, there are 3 different types of connectors that HK supply with all of their lipos nowadays, and it's d epending on the capacity, very small lipos are equipped with the JST BEC type connector, medium size lipos are shpped with the yellow XT60 type connector, whereas very large lipos come with the big red connector with 4mm bullets. and the male T-Type is already on the speed control's leads as it should be, because the male exposed contacts are in danger of being shorted if was attached to the battery side.

I use these on my 400 coax. They have various adapter cables too:
T-connectors $1.99 http://www.helipal.com/connector-t.html
One complaint on the real Dean's connectors is they're very difficult to pull apart. The edges are smooth and there's not much for your fingers to bite into.

I always found the 180's more powerful than the Aero's

My cx3 with the Xtreme 180's I had I would be was almost as powerful as a BL version; it had some jam; god I miss her

The wind (damn coax) took her away and way up over some 120 ft pines to never been seen again.

Just after I finished blinking it out; BUT it was a coax, and rudder control in wind was horrible - EVEN programmed with dx6i.

Extreme motors are "hot" rewinds; they like high rpms without a lot of drag. They need modified blades and a friction-free drive train to work well. Otherwise, something is going to burn. I'd like to be able to appreciate the interesting engineering that went into this heli, but it's selling at a price point where there are some pretty good single rotor helis available. You would have to be a real coax fan to appreciate it.
