I did a test between the two batteries and despite the smaller mAh rating of the E-Flite, the battery flies the heli for longer. I hit LVC with the E-Flite batteries consistently around the 6:00 min mark and 5:20 mark for the larger mAh Flightmax batteries.

I think I notice more pop with the Flightmax which would be odd considering the C rating works out to be 1.38A versus 1.68A of the E-Flite.

Anybody else experimenting?

I have a FLEET of helicopters... seriously.

I'm using Outrage XP15's on my mCX now. Flight times are definitely better than what I had before (Tenergy pack... bought the heli used). I can easily get 6-7 minutes out of it, and I think my LVC hits around 8-9 minutes. I don't remember because I only did it once. The Tenergy cell puffed after about 30 seconds one flight, so I won't be hitting the cutoff's again. The Zippy's are so cheap right now, as soon as HobbyCity has them back in stock, I'll probably buy at least 4 of them. Regardless, I'll still keep my timer at 6 minutes. I get bored of it after a bit anyways. That is... until my Cusker swash mod arrives! Only downside to the Outrage packs is they're a little longer and can come in contact with the servo gears if you're not careful. Easily fixed if you lower the main gear a tad.

I need one of those to fly in my office. Tried to fly my .90 in there but man is my wife pissed now!

Thanks for the info. I will have to take a look at those XP15s. I am flying the MSR at the moment so it would be interesting to have the flight times for that battery too.
