I just saw these packs on FMA Direct's website and was curious as to any first-hand experiences anyone may have... After numerous ThunderPower packs going bad, I am on a quest for high performance, light-weight packs that are reliable... Although I like what I'm hearing with the AirThunder packs, the 6S packs are significantly heavier than the ThunderPower and Revolution packs... so any feedback on the Revolution packs would be greatly appreciated, given that very few have tried them thus far.

I've been using 2 of the 3-cell, 2100mAh 18C Cellpro Revolution LiPo's on my MX400. Each pack has 92 flights on them and they have been just great. They are powering an Align 430L with an 11 tooth pinion. The 430 is turning a set of 325 pro's at about 2400 rpms. I get about 12 minutes of hovering and mild FF. I use about 80% capacity of the battery for each flight and the batteries come off at about 108 degrees F with an outside temperature of 85 degrees f. For me, anyways, I think they are a good battery for the price. And for whats its worth, I charge them with the FMA Cellpro 4S, 3 AMP Cell Balancing Charger. I really like the charger too. It only takes about 45 minutes to recharge them.

Hope this helps,

Joe

Hi, I'm also going to buy some of these packs, 5s to make up 10s for my 3DMPe,
I had loads of questions which Mike at Aurroa (UK) was most helpful with http://www.aurorra.co.uk/shop/home.php .
He pointed me to this web sit : http://www.trex-tuning.com/kokam-revo-airthunder.php where there is 3 pack comparisson including a Revolution pack. by the way there's also a review on the FMA chargers!

Cobra, Good to hear you like them, It gives me confidence that I'm buying the right packs )

Andy.
