Parkzone T28

480 size 960KV motor.
Stock Battery 11.1V 1800 mAh 15C
currently using Hyperion 11.1V 2100 mAh 25C/Nano-tech 11.1V 2200 mAh 25C/Sky Lipo 11.1V 2200 mAh 25C

I'd love to try the Genesis 11.1V 2200 mAh 55C

I can't think of a more popular plane in need of more "pop". It's probably one of the most popular reliable planes in RC but all stock it's horrifically under powered.
I just ordered 3 Gen Eco's and have a set of nano techs. I already posted here in the battery forum that the nano techs made a noticable difference vs both the stock battery and my Hyperion and Sky Lipo 25C 3S.

I'd love to see what difference a truly high end 3S battery would make. If it's a noticable improvement I'd certainly buy more.

It uses a 3s1p1300 but anything from a 3s1p1000mah to a 1600mah will work.

I would like to try the 6S 2800 mah lipo 40C or 55C. I want to compare them to my Gens Ace 6S 2500mah 25C and my Sky 6S 3000mah 30C. Here's my MSH Protos 500 Heli. All stock. MSH 880KV, 14T pinion.
Manufacturer recommends 6S 2600 to 2800 mah 30C or above.

My ParkZone Jug modified to a razorback. Running a G-25 870kv motor with the 4 blade prop. Needs that extra umph than the stock 3S 11.1V 2200mAh 25C can give with the 4 blade on her. Would love to try one

Here's my Hobby King A10

All stock 75mm fans. Changed out the 20 amp esc's w/ 30 amp's

Running 3S 2200mah 30C batteries, and she definitely would benefit from a GENS ACE 3s 2200mah "55C" battery. Plus I could use the new GENS ACE in my new A10 1040mm "Black Lightning" kit I just got from BANANA HOBBY!
