tony,

It depends on how many cells you are considering. I use 10 cell A123 with CC HV-85 and Neu motor. Some people use 7 cell, some 8, some 12 or 14 :0) Anything over 8 or so requires high voltage ESC.

What goes up must come around

catfight,

Thanks for your respond.

where do you get those A123 cells from?

So if I use stock XL600 motor and Stock ESC, I have to use 7 cells right?
I wonder what is the flight time for using 7 cells with stock motor and ESC without any hardcore 3d at all?

thanks again

tony,

I got them off ebay:

Look for DC9360 part number. You do have to remove case and modify wiring, etc. I can't remember where I learned that - try a search on Dewalt packs maybe. Make sure you have a charger that does A123's for the cell count you use.

I only use 10 cell so don't know run times for others.

What goes up must come around

BIG A123 Pack for Scale T600

I am working on a Trex 600 based scale heli that needs more weight in the nose than my regular 4900mah 6S lipo provides. I am thinking A123 would be awesome for this application as its a pain to open up the fuse to change packs. Maybe with such a fast recharge time just have one big fat A123 pack in there and charge it in place!

So.....is is possible to make a big fat 7s3p total 21 cells 6900 mah pack and If so, can I charge it with my TP-1010C charger in one charge?

Inquiring minds want to know!!!

Thanks!

Marc
