Question
Gens Ace (Hobbypartz.com) restocking time

Hello all,

Just curious how often Hobbypartz.com recieves new stock? The Gens Ace packs I want are out of stock currently and I hope its not going to stay that way for the 30+ days like Hobbyking typically has on certain batteries. I figure everyone is stocking up since the flying season has begun...

I suspect a lot of folks would like the definitive answer on this one. I don't know if (A) the manufacturer is not keeping up with demand or (B) the distributors are not ordering enough for the local LHS markets or (C) the big houses such as Hobbypartz don't order enough inventory to supply the market. I figure it is at least one of these reasons if not more. Too bad, Gens Ace is an excellent product but somebody is dropping the ball as far as supply chain management is concerned.

Add to the list that way to many RC flyers wait until nice flying weather arrives before ordering their LiPolys for the season.

Back in December stochk levels were much better except for very small 1 and 2S LiPoys as used in micros which many fly indoors or in their yards and local parks,school yards etc...

According to one thread I browsed recently, the 6S 3300 (which happens to be the size I'm looking for) went out of stock in November 2011.

Yeah I am waiting specifically on 6S 3300s as well. A lot of heli pilots are, those are a nice size pack. I called HobbyPartz and they informed me 2-6 weeks, they are waiting on the boat from China right now.

I found the supply of 5000 maH 30C 6S Gens Ace packs were not to be found in my local market in December. I was fortunate enough to get an order in to Hobby Partz before the start of Chinese New Year. It was a good thing. January inventories were lousy everywhere, The only house that was selling was one in Asia and they were playing "bait and switch" games with Gens Ace lipos. You ordered Gens Ace and got something else.

I have been waiting for the 3s1p2200s 25c for a year now.
I would like to find a lipo with the same weight as the tp2100 3s prolight that is more than 1500 mah.

Wow didnt realize it was this bad! I saw the 3s 5300 pack I wanted in stock about 3 weeks ago, then it went out of stock again. Should have bought it then. I might email them for an update.

GensAce are getting very popular. I just checked and have 25 packs in many different sizes myself. If you want them and they have them then you have to act fast.

Yesterday, I finally gave up waiting on the Gens Ace and ordered some Sky Lipos that were in-stock. Today I received an email that they are also out of stock though the website still shows them as available. So, apparently, hobbypartz is even more out of stock than the website makes it appear.

Anyone know what the charge rates are for the sky lipos? I bought some from hobbypartz and it is not on the packaging and they have not responded to the 2 e-mails I sent.

3C. It's been stated by Hobby Partz in one of the promo videos for their Sky Lipo brand.

Probably in the spring so they will have fresh batteries for the summer.
