TRex Battery
A friend has a new TRex 600 with the stock Align battery. He has hear stories that doing 3D with this pack has caused the battery to overheat and meltdown,catch fire, etc. Has anyone seen this for a fact or is this another urban myth ?

I think it's more along the lines of the align ESC. The battery worked fine on mine. My ESC burned out, so I sent it back for a new one. It was replaced free =)

I thought the Align pack was ok, did a few gentle flights taking it easy to geve the battery a chance to settle in and had no problems

Then I started getting more adventurous and the pack dropped off after a couple of minutes and after 4 or 5 it was very hot, not to a dangerous level but warmer than I had had a LiPo before.

If you are doing 3D or anything more than a hover and a bit of FF then it is not all that suitable - go for a FlightPower or Kokam pack instead - twice the price but I'm not expecting this Align one to last long so cheaper in the long run.
