Older Lithium Ion cells were rated at a nominal voltage of 3.6V but A123 (a brand name for Lithuim Iron Phosphate or LiFePO) are 3.3V/cell

check the nominal voltage difference

and as they compare to LiPO (Lithium Polymer)

Not safely. I would only run 2S A123 on servos rated for 5 cell NiCD packs (usually referred to as servos rated for 6V). 9252's are not rated for 6V. I will be running Hitec servos on the heli I'm building to run off straight A123.

Is there anyone else out there that thinks the stock Raptor graphics look gross? I swear the designers must have been smoking cow patties, yech! I bought some vinyl from a sign shop and did my own. Yeah, I know it could have been better. I did this free hand in about 1 hour and I'll probably buy more vinyl since it was only about a dollar a foot. I just wanted some thing my 50yo eyes could see. I still thin this loks way better than the batwing decals.

I am surprised when I see a Raptor with the stock stickers on. Especially the older wing graphics. That was the first thing I did was to make those wing stickers go away.

Hah, my buddy said that it looks gay with all that hot pink on it. I said who cares as long as it stays airborn and not turn into a rototiller. I can't fly it if I can't see it anyway. Hell, it still looks a million times better than stock!

Good looking scheme - hot pink isn't that gay, especially if it's on a great helicopter!

What Alpine system have you got in there? Must be hard to hear it over the engine
