Yep and these are just the big ones. I have quite a few more 3s1000 and 2s450 not pictured. All are Gens and Glacier. I switched to Glacier recently as HP can't keep steady stock. I like the pre-soldered deans and balance port cap on the glaciers. Great performance and shelf life from both.

I agree. I got so frustrated with HP inventory issues and then discovered that EP Buddy sold batteries. I haven't looked back since.

Good, but haven't done any flying yet. The house is still a mess, and going from 2,800 sq feet to 1,400 takes quite a bit of organizing (and throwing away stuff ).

BTW, conrats on the King 50. (... i know, I know.. it's a bit late to say that ).

Hey for all you guys running ZTW ESCs they now have the B series at quantum hobby

http://www.quantumhobby.com/category-s/686.htm


You can set the BEC to 6v on these so no need for an external BEC anymore. I would like to know if the throttle response is better on the B series though as that is one area i felt ZTWs lacked.

awesome. Altitudehobbies.com is also about to start carrying the 'lphobby' ZTW's, which are basically the B series too. Hobby-lobby.com sells the erc speed controls which are OEM'd b series too. Nice to have options for places to get them. I'm very eager to try some of these and see if the hesitation or 'slow start' that the A series ones have (even when you program it off) is present on these.

yep and I hope they are easier to program or at least have a card with all parameters

Flu shot makes me feel like crap for two weeks and then I still get a yearly nasty bug so not worth it to me to get the flu shot.

I never got any either until a couple of years ago....then I had a particularly nasty bout of flu a few years ago....last year I got a flu shot...one day of just a few chills, and was good all year.... Hopefully, that's what will happen this year... I don't feel "bad"...just not up to par....
