Well the gens ace I had is as old as my slick, so I think I got my money's worth. Sad to hear they've dropped in quality... I really liked the charge rate.

Looks like those sky lipos are out of stock at the moment, but I'll nab some when they're back!

Yeah. And they charge at 3C so get a few and they will be as good as the gens ace.

ha... yea, my original teacher was perhaps set in his ways... but he used expo himself, he just thought it was good to learn without it. Looking back, I see his point, I guess. Now though, as i want to learn and grow as a pilot, I'm open to all the tools that are out there. I know there is still great skill in making these things dance through the sky with the precision and authority that I have seen in some of the vids, but hey, if my tx can make it a little easier for me to keep it in the air and go where I want, when I want, I'm all for it. lol.... I guess it's like an Encyclopedia or Google... both can get you the answers.... ;-)

I'm not sure how much air time the 32" slick will get when my 44" arrives, but I'll order a couple more batts anyway. It's always nice to have a relaxing flight with a slow profile plane!

I'm waiting on hobbypartz, but I may resort to hobbyking if I can find a battery that's stocked in their US warehouse...

Was that from US warehouse? I ordered from Hong Kong or wherever they are. I didn't read the fine print. 30-45 days to receive??? I know next time make sure to order from US.

If TH is out of orange receivers is there somewhere else to order elsewhere or wait it out?

Headsuprc has recievers that work very well I have 3 of them. They aren't orange rx. But work just as well.

Or you could maybe find one from an RCG member in the classifieds. I've seen quite a few on here.

I ordered some Nano Techs from HK USA and got a decent buddy code. I was waiting for the Gens Aces to come back in stock, but its been 3wks and I saw the reported QA issues with the new ones too. Not quite as cheap as Gens Ace, but not a bad deal. Feel free to use it if you want.

Turnigy nano-tech 460mah 2S 25~40C Lipo Pack (USA Warehouse) $3.18:

Have you seen the sky lipo 500's? $3.20 each and you can charge at 3C.

Yeah, I've been watching those and the 450's, but they haven't been in stock for over 3wks. That's why I ended up getting Nano Techs, tired of waiting. With the buddy code it's the same price as the 500's.

I just posted trying to help others that are in the same situation as me..... I would have got HobbyPartz too, just got tired of being grounded waiting for stock.
