Please read the Break-in section.

Yes I read yiur's were only 5 second run ups so perhaps mininum damage but still not a great idea IMO.

Charles, Can you edit the "Break-in" advise/section to include how many cycles, minutes or miles?

I don't know what the deal is with hobbypartz but if you use their Lipo Filter/chart, not all the gens ace batteries appear. My buddy could not see the 3S 2200mAh 25C Gens when he clicked Lipo, then clicked 3S/25C box over on the right. I noticed you gotta just click the Gens Ace box to see it. Wierd.

Does anyone have the 4s 5300mah 30c pack? I'm curious what the IR is and their actual dimensions. I'm having a hard time believing the size of the pack listed on the website given the dimensions in the first post for the 3300's and 2200's aren't the same as what is listed on the hobbypartz website.

From the other packs I measured and weighed, I think the ace Power website as Alex is showing is pretty accurate. I've added my 3rd pack to the first post. 1-2mm or 10g error is probably an error in measurement method or the scale. I bet there is a little bit of inconsistancy from pack to pack as well. If the selling vendor posts info, I'd go by the Ace Power website instead. Some of the weight differences may also be the connector that is added. Don't know if Ace included the connector in their measurement.

Either I'm blind or you added a 5300mah pack to the first post today (6s). Given your dimensions combined with the ones found on their website it looks like their 4s pack will fit my plane. Now I just need to order one and give it a whirl!

Yes, I Added it today. I forgot to add it to post #1 and only noticed it when you made your post I guess I'm the only one measuring them though.

I made my order earlier today. If all goes well I will be using them in the next weekend or two. I will be pushing them near their limit so it'll be interesting to see how they can handle it.
