I have 40 cycles on my 2 sets of 2p 5s4000 packs, always charge them at 2C (power supply limited). Still same as new.

I haven't been keeping track of cycles on my 3s450 packs, probably around 30 each, always charge them at 5C. Sometimes they get drawn down well below 20%, since the foamie power use is pretty wind-sensitive. Not that worried about their longevity anyway, since they only cost $4.35 each.

I try to never bring a pack lower than 3.70 - 3.75 per cell after a flight, which usually puts back around 80%.

Did they have any of the EPP 33" Extras or 34" Edges at WRAM? They've been out of stock on the site for a long time with no ETA. I feel bad that I've let so many people fly mine and they've all wanted to buy one, but they aren't in stock.

Judging by the pictures posted, it looks like there's a few good sized stacks of foamie boxes.

Does anyone know why some of the Gen Ace packs are packaged blue and some are carbon fiber weave? I need some rx packs for my 89" slick and I don't want to get the wrong thing again. Any help?

Are you running HV servos? And are you going to use a redundant or battery share system?
