Could you re-word that so that it's understandable?

I think what he's getting at is that is it really worth buying a $600 dollar battery pack just to get 10 more minutes of flight and save some weight..

That is only 10 cases of fuel at the most. $15 dollar a gallon.
How much did your battery pack your using now cost.
If your happy with what you have why switch. What is your run time now?

Weight is a big part of it, that 10 to 16 ounces is like going form a 60 to an 80...how many did that?

It's also getting the CG up higher on the frames so the heli flies better.

The battery may cost $600 but how much does a roundcell pack cost? $100? $150. The difference is really what your paying not $600, more like $450 or $500.

It's also getting to spend some serious quality time in the air with your electric. With roundcells I only get a couple really good minutes and the rest of the flight is sedate. Lithiums are much more like flying nitro, you get a really long time period where the power is high and consistent, not a constant tapering down.

Are they worth it? I'll never go back...but to each his own.
