Any experience with the DN 6S batteries for the Trex 600 ? How are they compared with the TP 6S 5000 ? Can I use the TP 1010 charger with them ? What adaptor should I use ?

Not many people have used the DN power. I'm sure they are more comparable to the Align packs than to the TP and Evo packs. It'll probably work OK for sport flying.

You can use the TP charger, but here is a note from readyheli about it:
"NOTE: Using a pair of DN Power Battery to Thunder Power Balancer Adapters may work with the Thunder Power TP-210 Balancer, but has the possibility of damaging the balancer if the plugs are reversed.

A TP 3s (4 pin) and 5s (6 pin) tap needs to be hard wired to the battery. Email us for a diagram of this suggestion. An adapter can be made, but lead 1 and lead 2 (on diagram) on the DN pack needs to be determined."

I'd email them for a diagram before anything gets ruined!

I made a thread on making balancer connectors right here: http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t307306p1/

I have not tested the battery yet as the weather has been too cold to fly But tomorrow will be its first outing

I dont have a 600 but use the DN's on my 450 and I am very pleased. I cant tell a difference between them and my TP's. And I am extremely pleased in the price difference...

I did an A/B test with the DN Power and the Align batteries over the last few weeks. What it comes down to is that the DN battery will hold the rotor RPM better under load, where the Align battery will move the heli quicker while the head is unloaded.

The DN Pack weighs about 90 grams heavier so I figure that is the reason that the heli would climb faster with the Align pack while it was unloaded. As far as flight characteristics, there were no HUGE differences between the two. I would say that overall they are a GREAT value. I wouldnt go as far to compare them to a TP 5000 or an EVO, but they are a great buy for someone who wants a good quality battery for about 150 bucks.

I finally got a few cycles through the DN pack. For the money, they are amazing. Slightly less punch than my FP packs, I would say around 90%. Temperature after flight was nearly identical to what my FP packs are doing - much cooler than my old Align packs were. I will have to see how long they last, but so far they are a VERY good pack for the average sport/3D pilot running stock gear ratio and 12 degrees of pitch or less. I may have to pick up one more. I will update the thread occasionally as the pack gets more cycles on it. Hopefully the pack has a good lifespan!
