I hadn't flown in a year. Got back into the hobby with a 450 Pro this past January. Stock motor, esc, pinion. 3s 2200mAh packs. First flights were timed 5 minutes hovers and forward flight at ~90% throttle.

All 3 packs are toast. Complete toast. Nothing was running hot the first round of flights, throw them on the charger and WTF, completely destroyed. No puffing, but I can barely hold a hover with them now...Not even 3 flights in on each pack...

What gives?

And if I gotta buy new batteries, how about this 6s setup? Seems like it can take a lot more abuse.

So I guess 4 or 6s. Pros? Cons? For 6s, I'm having a hard time finding equipment. What are you guys using?

There's a big thread on HFreak site. A couple of folks have also started a 6S thread here for your answers.

The 6s is just about as efficient as you get so insane power and ur stuff comes down like it hasn't been on... If u use hk packs you can use 2 3s packs but like trex said go to helifreak and look at that thread, it will answer all ur ?.... It's in the 450 pro section I believe

Thank you. So, no thread on RunRyder?

I'm looking through the HeliFreak thread right now. Some good info. Still a little vague on batteries. Wondering about CG too...
