I get 23 minutes in my Voyager E with 15t pinion, these batteries are awesome, I don't think I can ever go back!

Hey Misskimo, u noted you get 23 minutes on your Logo 10 with 4s4p? What motor/esc/pinion combo are you using?

I love mine!

15 minutes of BETTER than glow-like performance on my Raptor 50 conversion, 20 minutes of hard 3D on my Logo 20, 30-60 minutes on my small slowflyers at 1/2 the wieght of NiCad/NiMh and all the way up to 74 minutes of flight time using a 2s4p pack on my Hobbico SuperStar EP!

Itll only be LiPos for me from now on - Thunder Power of course

For what it's worth, I can get 26 minutes on the Fury EP with a Hacker C50-15XL or 16 minutes with a Hacker C50-13XL. Both motors will aerobat the thing but of course the 13XL is a good bit more potent. I'll never be without one of Charlies packs again...thanks Charlie

2 3s4p packs for my E3D and I've just ordered a 2s4p to combine with one of the 3s4p packs to use in my Kyosho Spitfire. I probably will not order nmih again. TP packs spoil you.

two TP 2S4P 7.8Ah packs (one at a time) for a Superstar EP ARF (with great mods from Jason). Son & instructor flew the maiden 26 minutes before son got tired and they landed. Checked recharge and they had 17 minutes left in the pack. Instructor noted very little if any fall off of power during the entire flight.
Now the instructor limits each flight to 10-15 minutes with breaks and discussions in between. Get 4-6 flights on 2 packs and still have lots of power left in them at the end of the day.

TP lipos? LOVE THEM!
Glow is on life-support.
P.S. I have no glow powered planes anymore.

Hi, you're talking about the Logo? Just wondering as you got an Eco pictured...

What's the kv/v of the motor you got in your Logo 10?
