Its No Lie, Its Fact

It will deliver it as said. Bench tested by a local pilot on said setup.

It sound like its not possible but he swears by it. its possible he ran 2 of them in series, as each pack is capable of 600W + at those numbers

Does not mean you can actually have a full 10min flight with 2100mAh.

our 15C will do that too. Thats were the tests came from, the 2100mAh is just an improved cell capable of 700W+

I will edit the claim to match 11.1V pack max output as it should be.

11.1V and 49A is not anywhere near 1050-1125W. It's a flat lie.

What you mean is if you buy several packs and put them together you could get 1000W+. Of course that's saying nothing because any pack on earth will deliver 1000W plus if you put enough of them in series .

It said 1000W can power 9lb plane. How is that not true? 450W will power a 9lb plane at 50W per lb.

Listing was not sugesting of actually using 2100mAh battery to power a 9lb plane like this in real life. it was only a reference to Power it can deliver. Which was corrected to reflect 11.1V power capability.

Let's see with a single pack it won't go verticle... wasn't mentioned in
the ad.

But let's just say it did. You would go verticle for a very short peroid of time
then watch your plane go into a dive into terra firma cause there ain't no
juice left!!!

I can go to the store by launching myself out of a cannon but I chose not
to....

I believe the ad is suggestive. Very suggestive. How very disappointing.
But I don't really think too many newbies will put out 70 bucks for one battery pack.

"corrected"? The EBAY add still says that this 3S battery delivers 1050 watts of power at 49 amps. If you do the math, I think you will find that 11.1 Volts * 49 Amps = 544 Watts. And of course if you pulled 49 amps from this 2100 mah battery it would be at considerably less than 11.1 volts.

While you could get 1050 watts by using two of these in series at 49 amps, that is a meaningless statement. You could get 10000 watts by using 20 of them in series, so what?

The add is misleading as it implies that a single 3S battery will deliver 1050 watts.

I dont know many newbies that would attempt a 9lb electric conversion period and for sure not with a single 2100mAh pack. If they did we would set them straight. We are not here to "con" people as kogibankole implied, we are here to help. TrueRC support can be reached nearly 24/7 in North America via phone, email or IM, that's our commitment to all of our customers.
