The 6s5000 Turnigy 20C seems to even weigh a few more grams than the 30c, (that's not right is it?)
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...S_20C_Lipo_Pack

Here is the 30C link
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...?idproduct=9518

I have the 20C version and it weighs 785g w/wire&Deans -
how is it that they say the 30C weighs less?
(is it even a different battery, or just a different sticker and price)? -

The 20C is longer than the 30C, so yes, it weighs more.

The 30C is gonna fly much different than the 20C, lots more power. You want the 30C.

Wait a minute - (not a N00b here by any means), and while I appreciate your reply, ALL higher "C" packs should weigh significantly more, (not the same or less) -

I understand very well that a 30c will deliver it's mah quicker than a 20c pack -

Keep in mind the infamous "improper labeling" deal that HK proclaimed when the Turnigys just came out a couple months back on the 6s5000 20C (that they said was really a 25C, but mislabelled) -

Now we have a 20C pack that weighs the same as their 30C pack, and I'm wonder what the heck is going on here -

Go look at the diff in weights between the G3 25C and the 35C packs -

To the best of my knowledge, this is the 1st time a 20C and a 30C is advertised as weighing the same, so I think something is fishy, (fishy enough for me to start this thread) -

I would guess it is different run of cells. As you should be aware of, the further along the technology gets, the more powerful and smaller everything gets. This is not lost on batteries. Each new step introduces a better performance pack than the previous and as such, they get lighter but offer the same or even better performance.

So my guess is that the 20C packs are made from older cells.

The weights on the HobbyCity site are not the true pack weights, I think they are more for shipping cost purposes.

60% of the time, it works every time!

TJinGuy - I don't believe they are a different run of cells since they both came out at the same time - besides, the 20C Turnigys kick butt and I know they are HK latest technology -

Richard - there are two weights listed on the Hk website -
On the page with all the different packs, they list the shipping weight
And when you click on an actual pack, you then get the page with the specs that had the actual pack weight, not the ship weight -

Thanks for the replies, I hope to get more -
(wish someone had a 6s5000 30C they could weigh - the 20c weighs 785g on my scales - Jim -
