The quality of Blade products has improved with the nano CPS and 180CFX that I am prepared to take a risk.

I will also be getting a few of these batteries. Their 550mah battery is the best I have ever used for the 180CFX.

-My friend, I'd be very interested in how you make out with the model. I'm looking at potentially picking one up in the spring for backyard flying and I'd value your opinion...

Hyperion makes a 240 3s, and giant power makes a 300mah 3s, that look the right size. The problem most 3s 300 packs are rectangle, and eflites pack is square.
Low cost pack that might fit http://www.chinahobbyline.us/product...01511/476.html

Hi


This looks good , linear servos dont strip

and over long grass that head is bullet proof

3S perfect

and 300 mm just right not to big

the MCPXBL I have been waiting for

The BL is too small and the flight control system does not have that nice 977 feel ,

you have to fight the BL through manures
but it will do them

I will be waiting for you test Zad

Battery options


Thinking about picking this BNF 130s up when they become available at HH, I'm also on standby to see what the battery measurements/weight are on the standard elcheapo eflite battery ( no info on HH site yet) so I know what route to take in getting a half dozen good batteries for it.

I mostly run nano tech and glaciers in all my airplane warbirds and 230s heli and absolutely love them. The only downfall for me is this size nano tech 370mah battery @ hobbyking in which I believe should be close to or around the size of the eflite 300mah battery? is only available to ship from across the pond and are not available to ship quickly in the states! so it will take forever to receive and most importantly hoping that all batteries are good upon arrival. Glacier has a 450mah but not sure if the size/weight would be adequate for this new heli. Guess I'll have to patiently wait hoping to here some reports soon.

This might also be an option for battery cnhl 350mah

guys have been using this brand in the edf jets for a while, and they hold up well. Good prices too, state side, and I believe free shipping with a min order of $40.

Battery Specs


For those who wonder: vtown nick over on Helifreak has posted the following info for the Eflite EFLB3003SJ30 battery: 26grams, 40mm x 17mm x 20mm.

I haven't found any other battery so far that comes close to these specs. However, if you use the cells and plugs from three Venom 25147 batteries (38x20x12) you could make two batteries that come pretty close. On the other hand, there is not much of a price advantage, if would only be about two dollars cheaper per battery and I am not sure that is worth the hassel.

Good luck all and let us know if you find a better battery that will fit.

Hyperion 240 3s, will work then. They will not be much cheaper though.

Great info on the stock eflite battery beqok, I must have overlooked the post somewhere on HF
I'm not worried to much about battery pricing, I just want some better quality batteries than the standard eflites. Jasen40 hyperion batts are of some high quality and that might be the route I may have to take then. Thanks guys

I was thinking about this idea some time ago. Now I think it is doable only with brushed motor (it could be more responsive than brushless) or with 2 motors. one for right one for left turns... but it will be kinda not very effective setup

Speaking of batteries for this heli, I lucked out and purchased 5 brand new 300mah eflite batts from a club member for $25 yesterday at the flying field, not really a big fan of eflite batts but for this deal I could not pass it up. It couldn't have happened at a better time! now just waiting on the new 130s I pre-ordered with 10% coupon and $10 voucher.
