I bought a couple of these just to try since people say they are so good....Well...i get consistent cutout on power climbouts (+10) with 430/35a and 13t (gov off, TC at 90% at the top).

Will see how the 11t performs, but i suspect it will be flawless with the 11t, just an FYI, they are cheap and great for practice flying, but I dont think they will hold up to big current draws.....will get some EVO 20's 1800 next week.

Do you mean you're getting ESC cutouts or just a big drop in power?

I'm running the same setup on one of mine and it's strong and consistent.

ESC cuts out. I will try dropping it to 60% to see if the pack can handle that.

i'm running these packs on my Align 430L 3550KV and Align BL35G 35A esc... they are good I guess? I get 8 mins of 3D before the esc tells me to land...

i set it at 60% medium discharge... however, I was told that Apex will have a new pack coming out end of feb. a 15C one...

jcrack_corn,

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. It should be fine once you set it to 60%.

l337hxr,

It's out. Readyheli.com has them, but I think he's out of stock right now.

Most Apex packs have the Thunder Power balancer plug, but there were a few that had a larger jack. I'm not sure what the new 15c packs have. Regardless you can also get the adapter from readyheli.

I use both the polycharge4 & triton and use the TP balancer when needed.
