HELLO,
I WANT TO CHANGE MY MI-MH BATT ON MY RAPTORS 50 AND 90 TO THE LI-PO OR LI-ION BATTS, BECAUSE I WANT TO FLY MORE TIMES AND WITHOUT RISK OF LOSS POWER FROM THE BATT.
WHAT KIND OF BATT YOU RECOMEND ME, LI-PO OR LI-ION? AND WHAT BRAND?

THANKS,

JUAN

How about STOP SCREAMING I'd say go with a LiPo if you got the charger...Thunder Power is tried and true.

I'm going with li ion for my new packs. Just a bit more difficult to ignite in a crash than the lipo.

There. Now you have your opinions.

Batteries America lipo works great in my Heli and very affordable.I use the Duralite charger to charge them also because I use Duralite but they are proud of them ,pricey but a good product, also if you are on a budget get the cheaper lipos.

Oh what a feeling 3D Flying can be

Li-ion- come in a metal case, good for crashes, but their discharge rates are lower. For the average digital servo setup with a 5.3 to 6.0 volt 7amp regulated system, this is not an issue.

Li-po - come wrapped in plastic, not good for crashes, but their discharge rates are through the roof. If you are using some of the new 7.4 volt servos with 4.0amp stall rating, then you might want to go this route. PS. I do not think that the receive can handle all of the voltage and or current. I'm not even sure how to set one of these up.

IMO there is not that big of a weight difference between similar sized li-ion verses Li-po. In general lipos are lighter than Li-ion.

My personal preference is Li-ion (fromeco) for the rx with a duralite regulator(6.0v with a step down). I like the flight times with the fromeco. I use the 5200ma relion, and it runs all day.
