600 battery options?
Hi guys,

I am the proud new owner of a T-Rex 600 aluminum, I'm in the final stages of building it and I'm starting to think about battery choices. My uncle, also a hobbyist suggested using 2 smaller batteries instead of 1 large one. I'm just a sport pilot, no 3D so i dont need some huge power output and I'm trying to save a bit of money on the batteries, thanks for any suggestions!

buy quality batteries dont cut corners.use F/P or T/P for best results or try one of the new mfg like Falcon.expect to pay $200-$350 ea.

To start out with you can get a DN for $150.00 . . .

But just remember that if you choose to advance to 3d flight then you should looks towards the EVO or TP Extreme series Lipos . .

Nas,

if you buy these DN (cheap) batteries you will not be able to sell them or use for 3d.they puff real bad too wich makes them a fire hazard.buy quality and balance every charge.

Don't waste your money on cheap batteries, period. One of two things will happen; 1. you will want more performance eventually, or 2. they will fail on you causing you to buy the better ones anyways and waste the first purchase.

Spend your money once, buy the good ones in the first place. TP or FP are your only real choices. Cutting corners here will only cost you down the road...

Kong Lipos
I have 2 25c 6s2p 4400mah's now. I just finished breaking them in this past weekend. So far so good.

Next weekend I plan to wring them out a bit more and see what they are all about. I'll post back after 20 or so cycles thru them.

I'm definately in agreement with "Buy right, Buy once". The only advantage to cheap batteries is that they will get you in the air with less beginning cost layout. Other than that, you WILL be replacing them at much sooner intervals than the more popular brands. If you dont mind that you will have to buy batteries at much closer intervals,and wand to get in the air for less money go for the cheapies. If you want batteries that perform AND last longer, go for the big boys (Thunder Power or Flightpower).-=Artti

The Align lipos are "okay" for hovering and for light forward flight. If you push the packs, the temps REALLY get up there on them though. As you probably already know, hot batteries dont last long. As far as price goes, they are in between the off-brand batteries and the name brands.-=Artti

I now own five Flight Power EVO25 5000 6S packs for my Trex 600. All of them stay balanced very well without much help from the balancer. Regularly I check the cell balance before charging after flight. 9 times out of 10 the cells are within .005v or less of each other, all six cells! That's pretty impressive in my book, the cells are equally matched and have similar discharge rates.
