Given the WX, it's not likely to be test-flown before Wednesday at the earliest.

It came with a bonus of 6 AA's.

make sure you discharge it to storage level if it's gonna sit around more than a day. Those higher "c" ratings Lipos don't like sitting around too long fully charged.

I'm about to partially discharge it the fun way: by hooking it up to a motor/prop and taking some watt meter readings.

I added a 3300 6s 40c and flew it a few times today. I also have flown the 2200 4s 40c batteries quite a bit. I'm ready to say service, quality of batteries, and value are all quite high. I'm sold.

The past week has not provided a lot of good WX.

But, I was able to get in two afternoons of flying with my new 6S 3300 30C. It was an excellent performer, delivering all the power and flight time I'd hoped for.

Recommended.

I just discovered this supplier from this thread and am impressed! Will try them soon! But isn't it true that there are very few lipo manufactureres with a lot of rebranding going on?

Yep! but some will answer their emails and others won't.

some won't honor their warranty or make you jump through 10 circus hoops, while some will honor.

Haiyin seems to be one of the ones that will . You take the pick.

by all means I don't want to derail this thread, but I also recently tried http://www.haiyinstore.com/. they are fairly good too. The only thing I have against Haiyins is that they are quite porky. the chinahobby ones are a bit less on the porky side. the same 40C 2200mah is roughly 192 vs 207g (haiyins)

Because of chinahobbyonline's Lipo's performance and Jason's awesomeness, I've decided to buy another order from them. I checked HK site, and Haiyin and settled for chinahobby. This time 2x 4s 3700mah 40c for my 1400mm P-40. They took a few $dollars discount off, plus 10% and free shipping...can't beat that.

I just got some 1300 3s 40c batteries. These are some very good batteries. Thrown in the service and price and I think we have a winner.

I'm looking to purchase.
How did you get the 10% discount and free shipping?
I need some 4s for the first time to try on a stryker.
