How do you make a battery that is 11.1 volts and works with a 7.2v motor why whould century the makers of the HB sell a battery that will destroy there own bird I know that I am not the only one so whats the deal yah I like the power but when the motor will only survive through a 20min flight..... :confusedr some times a little longer.... And yes i am using all the heatsink but no luck after two HP 370motors from century and one tell motor no luck...also one speed 300 and one wATTAGE 370 motor.... Oh and the hop up for the piccolo from heli-hobby was done in a day and I think my hummingboard is done to I think it is from this battery.. I am going to go back to my TWO cell LIPO batterys but not happy with century on this one....

Hey man, stop spending money on brushed motors, get yourself a brushless motor, no worries...

I run a Razor just warm after 20 minute flights and strong on the 2 cell etec 1200's. no maintenance, lotsa power, longer flights, saves u money in the long run...... most of all more fun fun fun!

I had the same issue, I used the 3cell li-poly pack on my brushed setup, and smoked the Hummingboad & 370 motor. How Irritating that they would recomend this upgrade to blow out everything. I'll be going brushless soon enough, I'm thinking about the Astro 010 setup w/ phoenix 10.

I've been flying with a 370 brushed motor and hummingboard with 3 cell lithiums and so far the only thing that went bad on me was the tail motor.

I'm waiting for an Astro 10 myself to come in this week.

Spoke to soon

The 370 motor is dead after less than a week of flying. Darn it, I just got the new tail motors from Japan. It take rong time for hericotor parts to arrive.

Be back soon with brushless

In the mean time - back to the wood pile.

Later,
