I went overboard and now have 28- 450's for my two Twisted EPP's. Majority Gen Ace, and about 8- Nanos.

I don't want to spend much time charging...

I just got 6 more 450mha Gen Ace packs today. Two of them; cell #1 had less than 2v. Have you had any problems with them?

I have been practicing flying in as small of any area as possible all week, in front of the house. My hovers are way more locked in now! I'm ready!!!

You know I thougbt that happened to my last batch it turned out a balance lead came loose from my parallel charging cable. So mine ended up being ok but its not unheard of to get a bad battery since they are only 3 dollars

I ordered some 1600s from HK for my Buster earlier this year, the key is to use PayPal and not a CC... and then it may still take some time if they are not shipping from a US warehouse.

I made the mistake of doing CC on my first order (of two... lol) and, it took forever, the second order (w/paypal) went much smoother...

28 packs that must take some keeping track off. I only have 8 Gens Ace 450 2s and hardly ever run out. I did manage to fly one pack twice though if I remember right I put about 490mah back into it, seems it's still ok though.

I think I'd be sorting out getting those sent back.

This happened to me once and I had to get on their live chat. They had it fixed in about 3 minutes and they shipped out that day. It just got lost in the transfer to the warehouse.

I maidened mine last night at our indoor meet, this is one sweet aeroplane
Well done Twisted Hobbys!
I'm using the 1800 Kv motor from ParkAero and 8 x 4.3 prop. The Yak seems to have better rudder and elevator authority than the Edge, hardly any rudder input for KE, definitely preferring this over the Edge
