I went overboard and now have 28- 450's for my two Twisted EPP's. Majority Gen Ace, and about 8- Nanos.

I don't want to spend much time charging...

I just got 6 more 450mha Gen Ace packs today. Two of them; cell #1 had less than 2v. Have you had any problems with them?

You know I thougbt that happened to my last batch it turned out a balance lead came loose from my parallel charging cable. So mine ended up being ok but its not unheard of to get a bad battery since they are only 3 dollars

I ordered some 1600s from HK for my Buster earlier this year, the key is to use PayPal and not a CC... and then it may still take some time if they are not shipping from a US warehouse.

I made the mistake of doing CC on my first order (of two... lol) and, it took forever, the second order (w/paypal) went much smoother...

28 packs that must take some keeping track off. I only have 8 Gens Ace 450 2s and hardly ever run out. I did manage to fly one pack twice though if I remember right I put about 490mah back into it, seems it's still ok though.

I think I'd be sorting out getting those sent back.

This happened to me once and I had to get on their live chat. They had it fixed in about 3 minutes and they shipped out that day. It just got lost in the transfer to the warehouse.

I maidened mine last night at our indoor meet, this is one sweet aeroplane
Well done Twisted Hobbys!
I'm using the 1800 Kv motor from ParkAero and 8 x 4.3 prop. The Yak seems to have better rudder and elevator authority than the Edge, hardly any rudder input for KE, definitely preferring this over the Edge
