well...thought i would post this here... Anni sent me a PM regarding this thread and i don't really appreciate 'why' we can't have this discussion in a public forum???
Anni, dude...... you should know by now you can and SHOULD say anything you have to say 'about' me or to me in the forum for all to see. your adverse opinion of my 'posts' lateley is not of much concern to me. i don't mind constructive critisism... but lets let everyone weigh there opinions regarding the matter so we can have some "FUN" with it at the same time......
I like you so im gonna do this privately and try not to offend you.
Dont take this the wrong way but i have noticed that you have been doing ALOT of speculating lately which isnt based on really anything solid or concrete and whereas you used to seem credible you are starting to look alot less credible lately. Take the 20C packs for example and the motor capable of delivering 400W max. You just simply are missing the point entirely and dont seem to realize it. Here we are in an area i think that is simply outside your realm of experience at this point but yet you continue adding input which just doesnt seem to make much sense.
20C packs. Im not the only one that has them. THey are all over the place now. Its NEW battery technology. I fly a lehner on 3 cells with these batteries now and they dont get hot whereas the first TP-2100 gen2's i had i pretty much killed from using them with the lehner. You say you doubt any battery can stand up. This just makes you look uninformed and a bit behind because of the many batteries out there which are rated for 20C now. 20C is 20C. If they are rated for 42 amps constant thats what they will deliver without causing damamge to the pack. Period. The manufacturer would not maintain a market and a customer base if they were selling a lie.
400 watt capable motor. Go have a look at this page:
Go down to the 450TH charts. Look at the bottom of the chart. This motor is capable of 319 watts in bench tests (althought its paper rating is 250 watts).
Go have a look at this:
This motor is rated at 450 watts max.
So what im getting at is that you are making posts which more or less balking at the idea of any motor existing which could be rated for 400 watts on 3 cells when in fact they ALREADY EXIST. It's like me saying that ive tried to build a spaceship to the moon and had so many problems with it that i really doubt anybody else could ever do it.
Anyway.... the point of this message is twofold. I dont want to get into a discussion with you publicly about something like this since i think it would offend you but i thought you would at least be interested in hearing an outside opinion on some of your posts lately. I think its important not to take the attitude that just cause you havent seen it or experienced it than its not possible. That kind of know it all attitude gets annoying.
Hope you dont get the wrong idea about all this and if you want to discuss it im up for that - just dont take any of this personally. Its not meant as a slam on you or i woulda done this publicly.
are you afraid that support of my posts by the 'public' could outweigh the support of your posts?
either way i KNOW of others who feel you are the one who posts about 'nothing' like a 'now it all'. Although i NEVER confirmed or necessarily agreed with any such PM's that came my way. i took them for what they were, simply informational posts regarding peoples' opinions of your posts and threads.
that said..... i'm beginning to buy it more now. no one likes a 'now it all' who accuses another of being a know it all.
now before this gets out of hand, Anni i too have always liked you and not had any trouble with ANY of your posts whether i believed them completely or thought they were complete BS. Nor did i ever try to 'call you out' (privately or publicly) when i did disagree with something you had to say.
much of these forums are often based on theory, opinion, educated guess, and experience. that's all i have ever posted, and we all assign a certain amount of 'reliability' to certain peoples posts--- that's all we can do in a public forum.
i NEVER mislead my opinion--- i made it QUITE clear which batteries i was using and what my situation and background of experience was. ANYONE then has the option to assign as much 'weight' to comments as they so choose. you for instance, have made it clear that you assign little weight to my assessment of the above discussed situations, which i have no problem with.
simply state your opinion and assessment of my post IN the thread so all can see and make their OWN judgements about whoose information you choose to believe or not.
Now i'm sure there are some reputable sources here that WILL refute your blind support of supposed "20C" capable batteries. (hmmm, sell these batteries do you?)
look dude--- there's HUGE money in lipo batteries market, the dealers and distrubutors are in it for PROFIT, they will say anything within reason to SELL batteries. They ALL put their spins on the batteries themselves and i FULLY support that your 'special' 20C batteries are probably MUCH more capable than GenII crapp Thunder Power batteries, HOWEVER, i KNOW manufactures INFLATE the 'C' capability of their batteries on frequent occasion.
so you say 42 amp continous no problem from your 20C batteries... i just don't buy it, if you ran them like that for 10minutes I'M PEROSONALLY CERTAIN they would overheat, i base my opinion on PURE speculation based on the fact that your batteries are coming from 1 of the 3 same sources that everyone elses are. if i'm wrong, so be it, but certainly you owe it to the forum and readers to go ahead and prove me wrong with NUMBERS and do it publicly, so all can make the 'correct' assessment of whose info is more reliable, and whose isn't. i just simply posted my opinion based on my experience of lipos so far, last i checked, i was allowed to do that, and you're allowed to be annoyed by it. right or wrong, it is what it is, i NEVER said it was anything different. great if you can back your opinions up with facts. i commend you on that. i can say that my 3s lehner NEVER pulled more than 21-23 amps PEAK and still the Lehner severely weakened and overheated two TP 2100's and two Tanic 2220's. TP's rated at 10-12C continuous SHOULD have no problem if they are truly capable of what they're rated-- thus i DOUBT the numbers given on these batts. i've not tried yours, (never will actually), but i would not trust them too much more than i trust TP's... simply for the fact that they are indeed LIPO batteries, made by the same cell manufacturers as everyone elses.
who makes the cells you are selling as 20C Anni?
-- sorry for the major thread hijack folks... i just can't help myself.
Good Day: crashed thx to dumb thumbs. Bad Day: crashed mechanical malfunction. Every Day: CRASH :)
