Appr. 600 or 700 mah left in the tank, those cells only give up about 2.7-2.8 AH. They are mislabeled IMHO

yes, I know you were taking the piss as it were. I actually did mean that it might leave a scorch mark on the tarmac, like a turbine. Chris is known for melting things. He's been doing it since the 1980s. His shop is full of unidentifiable melted blobs with wires sticking out.

I guess I am not being fair - the blobs are generally not unidentifiable. The ones that have 2 wires sticking out are brushed motors, the ones with 3 are brushless motors, the ones with 4 are brushed ESCs and with 5 are brushless ESCs. But other than that they all look sort of volcanic in that they are blackish and look like at least part of them has been in a liquid state at some point.
