Hi,

I have been out of the hobby for a while now (almost 1.5 year) and would like to get back in...

but guess what...my LIPOs are all dead!!!

Can someone recommend a cheap and reliable source to get new lipos for my trex online??

Since I am in Athens/Greece I do not mind ordering from anywhere in the world.

I know the price dynamincs change all the time, and I am sure since I last checked there will be hundrends new sites offering good selection at competitive prices...

From a quick look I had I am guessing 30C is the minimum I should go for...as for the capacity the question remains!

Your help would be much appreciated!

thanks,

DK

cheap and reliable source
Check truerc.net, they have one year waranty on them with no xtra charge unlike some others.

If you plan on 2-3mins flight time maximum, then 30C is the minimum.

Here is a good rule of thumb to go by. (From RED 06)

3min flight to 80% drain = 16c avg and it can peak 32c = use 30c+
4min flight to 80% drain = 12c avg and it can peak 24c = use 25c+
5min flight to 80% drain = 10c avg and it can peak 20c = use 20c+
6min flight to 80% drain = 8c avg and it can peak 16c = use 15-20c+
7min flight to 80% drain = 7c avg and it can peak 14c = use 15c+

10min flight to 80% drain = 5c avg and it can peak 10c = use 10c+

30min flight to 80% drain = 1.6c avg and 3.2c peak = typical LiIon 3c packs can power it.

I only have a t-rex 450 so 6s is a bit much!!

I am not in extreme 3d flying so I guess I should expect 7-10 min flights.

But does that mean I should be fine with 20C even as I progress??

Also by looking around runryder I saw some people suggesting hobbycity.com what do you all think?

lipos...

Seeing as how you are in Greece...I would recommend finding someone on your area that sells The Desire Power(made in China) cells...they are some of the best(and cheap) packs/cells out there...

Outrage packs are made by Desire power...as are many others I'm sure...

I hear the Zippy packs are good as well....but you get what youp ay for most of the time...I'm not sure what the lifespan is like on the cheaper packs...
