First flights of winter break took place today.

I put a Motrofly 4315 on my 58" and it is freakin awesome! 4330 is going on my 72" also.

I have seen the name bandied about, but one thing that I have seen/heard on various forums, is that Banana Hobby has lousy customer service... That said.. I have no personal experience with them, as I have never bought anything from them (maybe because of what I have heard?) YMMV....

I have heard their customer service wasn't very good also. I never bought from them either, but was just seeing if their batteries were any good.

The 4315 is awesome on the 58" edge! I have one on mine and it has tons of power!

What kv and battery are you using on yours? I'm using the 480kv on 6s lipo with a xoar 15x8 prop.

I am also putting a 4330 on my 71" slick! 400kv on 6s with a xoar 19x10 prop.

I am running 714kv on 4s with the 15 by 7 prop.
I also have the 4330-400. Should be perfect.

Cool! Are you going to be using a 19x10 prop on the 4330?

Cool! Try to get video of the 4330 so I can see the power. I have to wait until Christmas to get my motor.

524g for a 6S 3300 65C is good. I just don't know if I can trust them at an $83 experiment. I would guess they would be great for my 4315-480 though.

How many do you have, how long have you used them and how many cycles?

I have been waiting for the EP Buddies 30C 6S to come in

I have some with 200 cycles already and still going strong. I have them for my 51 slick. I got them when they first came out. Also have a set of 4ks too that are 9 months old and have about 50 cycles. Not bad batteries at all.
