Yes, I am converting all my electrics to use this battery and so far have a 300C running a 12s1p pack to replace a 10s3p LiPo and a 430 running a 15s2p pack to replace a 12s4p LiPo.

Both give me 6-7 minutes flying time and recharge in 20 minutes if I want to.

My Turbine power packs have been replaced with 2s and 3s for the flight and ECU supplies.

I was thinking, no opening of pack.. sure there is a lot of overhead... but it would be cool to... say kill the DeWalt flashlight and use the battery mount and put this on the heli... then just "snap" it on... and use the DeWalt std. charger

Dude... Why stop there. The drill will to 1900 RPM. Chuck the mainshaft up, put a throttle servo on the trigger and off you go!

There is a apparently a fuse in the pack. I dont know its rating. 20-30 amps maybe, so you may not be able to exploit much power out of it. There is also a fusible link connecting 2 cells which will blow at a very high amperage.

I've always wondered why companies like DeWalt and Makita aren't also in the electric RC biz. They're already manufacturing the main components -- motors, batteries, precision gears, clutches, 'bulletproof' casings, etc.

I'd probably buy a 50-sized Makita heli sight unseen, or at least the drive components from one.

Tempting, very tempting....

I put a 90 into the ground, well, didnt need much help from me, but believe it or not, the entire head is ok (except gear, stripped)

the rest of the heli, done.

I might, just out of curiousity, put the main shaft in my dewalt, and see if it can spin it.

OH NO, a thought...Ever see those bar stool racers? What are we doing, a sub culture of Power Drill Heli's let me be the first to say: http://www.powerdrillhelis.com

hmm, for the Blade CP look, take two one big, one small, back to back, the small one drives the tail.

On a second thought, can I convert my drill to brushless?
if is more efficient wont I get longer run times?
