Ritewing yellow jacket 20 c lipos

Hey guys i have ben testing some 3s 4500's 2s 4500's ,3s 5100's and 2s 5100's they are slighty thinner than the 5000's and 4350's we have ben using.I have be abusing these packs the last few weeks with awesome results.I started a few weeks ago on some 2100' and 1300's with good results.
This last weekend I burned through a bunch of packs flyin and the ballanced back perfect and have killer stingin punch for the price.
If you guys are needing some direct replacements for your 1300's, 2100,s 3700' 4350s or 5ks let me know.I am placing an order here and need all the help I can get.I will be getting these oem for us directly.
All these bats are 25% to 40% cheaper to the other bats we have ben using.With great performance and the same taps.
I am tryin to help bring the cost down.LMK PMME

Bad News...

Hi everyone!

Ok, it looks like I may have to get out of the high performance wing hobby forever if my doctor can't get my shaky right hand fixed. It is a major problem for flying at very high speeds and it will certainly lead to a bad crash one day sooooooo...

I may have to sell my beautiful CK built TL40 (one of the last ones he did apparently) in favor of a new hobby or a MUCH slower, smaller wing. Will keep everyone the group posted on my issue and if I do I would love for someone here to have the first crack at my TL40.

Just for reference it is a ck TL40 built professionally by ck himself balanced for 6s or 3s2p battery setup running a Mega 4 turn for the 3s setup currently. I would be including the 2 packs of batts, lead weights and maybe the balancer as well (keeping my LiPo charger just in case I need that one). Heck I may sell my TX as well, sad stuff for sure.

You guys have been great and I want to personally thank ck for building that one for me and Phil in Reno for getting me into the hobby. Thanks again!

That 's interesting that the 4K and 4.6 K are the same dimentions.

had a chance to fly one of the new packs that CK has today I got one of the 2100's 3s 18c packs..

I flew it in my minifs with the double komodo lrk pulling 21 to 23 amps with a 5.5 by 4.5 apc prop

The battery lasted about 17 to 20 minutes of WOT flying and came out warm but not hot after hitting LVC of 9 volts..

The performance was nice and held above 10volts almost till the end I flew it 3 times on the first charge landing and feeling the pack for heat and mesuring the VDC under static load

I was very happy with the pack and will definaly get more..

When i got home and put it on the charger charging at a 1c rate of 2100 mha i was able to put 1910 mha back into the pack..

Not bad for the abuse i was giving it..

CK i think you have some winners here..

on a side note i installed my HOW FAST into the mini (taped it one) best pass and max recorded speed (in a dive for sure) was 83 mph.. WOOT!!!!

TL40 Parkflyer???

So here is a little project I have been working on and I am 95% complete. Chris found an old set of cores hidden away and I took it off his hands for a deal

I intend to use a Microdan 2505 speed motor. But incase it does'nt work out I can throw a het motor in no problem.

My goal...... to balance this baby with one.... thats rite "one" 3s 2100 pack. They say it could'nt be done....Guess what. I did it.

She balances at 7 5/8 with no lead and a het4w, so with that microdan I might even be nose heavy

I really have no idea how she is going to handle, it could fly like garbage but there is only one way to find out.
