Same thing with the sticks being split packs. Only difference is the series connection is built onto the top of the pack and can be disconnected and connected last as opposed to the esc being wired for the series connection. Easy hookup to a PL8 for parallel charging.

Plus the other thing I like about this arrangement is pack is never at 50v until its plugged into the model and the model is fired up. Its much safer having two 25v packs vs a 50v pack around.
I will usually keep mine unplugged as two 6s packs as well. Either way should work fine.

Batts for E7

I've tried most of the packs and I've found that the Turnigy Nano Tech 4400's are by far the best deal. Use either the 45c or 65c packs. I have found that these packs do not puff. All the others I've used have puffed. You can get these from Hobby King for around $100.
I do have some relatively new Thunder Power 65c packs that are new so I will be seeing if they work without puffing, however they are over double the cost.

For 12s setups, the Turnigy's are hard to beat.

what kind of cycles do you get with the Turnigy's? And is the power out of them reasonable in comparison to lets say the TP 65C packs?

For $100 a clip per 6S pack, that is very, very reasonable.

I had Turnigy's 25c batteries and was able to put between 90 to 105 cycles on them...not bad for the price. Except when I received them 2 out of 8 packs didn't work and I had to pay to send them back and took over 4 weeks for me to receive replacement packs.

I am trying out the Gens Ace 4000's on my E7. They are only 25c but are super light at 658 grams a piece and cheap too. I got the last set on sale for $108 for both.

Powerlab 6 is now available in a combo package. You can connect the chargers together and control both chargers from one unit. This is what I'm planning to do with my E7 batteries and two PL8s. Two packs at time, max charge rate up to 8c if you have the right power supply and generator.

E7 Batteries

Yikes the new guy, looks like $2k in batteries! Although you might be looking at 1200+ flights. I thought I went all out with 6 new Turnigys for $700.

Thanks guys,

I sold off a bunch of my nitro stuff that I don't use anymore. I have had 2 sticks for awhile now and was just able to get 2 more. Looking forward to keeping the E7 in the air.

Thanks,
Chris

thenewguy,

Have you flown your E7 much with those 5000 packs? I thought those might be to heavy and was looking at 4400's instead.

I have been flying my E7 for several months now with this set up. I think it works just fine. The heli is already so light that the little extra weight from the batteries is no big deal.

I must say I have not flown the E7 with lighter batteries... so I do not have a true comparison for the lighter feeling batteries. If you can, fly both for a true comparison. I fly mild 3D to big open stuff. Even with lots of hard direction changes the heli is freaking fast.

I know a lot of people recommend the lighter batteries, I can tell you the 5000 are just fine in my book. The reason I use them is because I already had the set up before the E7 and figured I would try it this way first. After flying it I decided they work perfectly fine, then bought more batteries.

Thanks,
Chris

Chris,

Thanks for the reply. I just got my E7 and was hoping to use the TP 6S 5000 packs that I have for one of my Logos. Sounds like we do the same type of flying. I think I'll try these first before buying something else.

MarkH,

I think that's a great way to decide what work best for you. Try it first, then maybe see if someone else has a set of the lighter batteries you can try before deciding.

I have been meaning to make a video of me flying my E7. Also a video for set up of the CGY750 and 8FG, but time has just not allowed it lately. I hope here after things slow down for me I can get to it.

Thanks,
Chris

Batteries for E7

I have no doubt that 5000's work great because the E7 is very light. Mine came in at 10.6 lbs. My Whiplash weighs 12.1 lbs. and it flies great with using 710 blades. The E7 with 4500's is ballistic and does get bounced around a little when it's real windy.
