I care for my batteries, charge them well, don't discharge them less than 9.6V under load (using a HR-Poly device to know when the voltages is too low while flying) except I tend to ask them alot of amps. However I'll never ask this pack more than 26 amp as it is the absolute max I monitored using my 450th. As it is rated for 30A continuous .
I also am very weary of over rated cells. I bought a 2000 mah 18-25c pack that died early #!!@&&! WTF, i draw 12A continuous and 26Aa absolute max and a pack that should take 36-50A dies early!!!!!!! This is crazy!!! The pack I am talking about have been used by several of my friends with same result. Medium power when new and aging really early. Of course it is just my firsts flight with them, but the tronics seem to cope very well the amps (no overheating, and the voltage does not drops too much under load.)
