Air Thunder 6S1P 5000 & 3S1P 2200
I have been logging some flights with my new batteries and after having Thunder Power, Align, and DN Power batteries, these new batteries are awesome! They don't get hot, they last longer on flights, and so far are very dependable! The prices are reasonable too.

How many flights do you have on the 6S 5000 pack? How long are your flight times with your rex 600?

I'm getting close to a full 10 min of flight on the Trex 600 and over 12 with a Trex 450 SA but it has some extra weight with the night flying gear on it.

Probably 25 flights on each pack by now and I'm flying where it's 100 degrees in the sun and they still stay cool.

I fly until I notice I'm at like 3/4 throttle to hold a hover, I've had the 6S pack down to 15-16V and the 2200 3s pack down to 16-17v range and that is a long flight to get it there. I don't fly until they don't fly at all, I'm sure that would ruin any pack, but I've done what they've advertized and they've done the job. Wish we could say that for all the people selling us stuff out there! Can I get an Amen Brother!!!!!!!!

Last battery I got cost 261 bucks from the air thunder web site, I notice they have a 50% off crash damaged packs, if you ditch it it's only 130 bucks and shipping probably,. not bad at all and good performance to boot!

Im wondering now that you guys have flown these for a while how they are holding up and what you are doing with them? How are you charging them? Iv been using TP and FP batts for a long time but these look nice and cost less. I have Astro 109s and TP balancer however the AT website states to charge thru the balance tabs. Thanks for the info guys.Fly it like its a rental...

I have both the 6s 5000 and 3s 2200..and have easily 25-30 flights on all of them with no problems...At one time I managed to put back in 4944mils back into a 500 pack..!!!now that bringing down the house...
I told Mandy at Air THunder about it and she just laughed and said "You really are using our batteries!!"

If you buy in quantity you can get the 6s for 240...

I've got the astro 109 charger and use a blinky, I fly the air thunder 5000mah 22v in the trex 600 for up to 7 min flights and put back 3200-3700 doing flips, rolls, tic tocs, etc... I've got the 1650 kv motor and 10t pinion. no problems at all, you add a small amount of weight but to me it's worth it.

One thing I didn't mention though..if you do run the big packs down you really have to have a good charger to get them back up...Most chargers will not recognize the 6s as a 6s when the voltage drops that far down..
I use the Bantam e-station BC-8 and I know the TP 1010 will also work but a lot of them won't. The align BCC is one I Know won't!!! Keep that in consideration if you are going to run the packs hard...

just my $.02 worth but I have one pack that has over 50 flights on it(6s) and it still flys like it did new I have noticed a 20 second drop in flight time but I am still getting over 8 minutes. and as for the batteries them selves I woun't fly anything else in the 6s,4s and 3s config. now if air thunder would make a 5s at 4000ma I could go back to just air thunders but the swift doesn't like the 5s 5000ma packs the wieght is just to much and 6s 5000ma is just to big to fit nicely. or guys I would step up and get some more 6s packs. I am going to test a few 3s 2200 stacked and see what happens on the swift. even if the flight times are short the wieght would be less the a 3700ma 6s and the fact that I can fly intell the headspeed drops makes it wourth it. I will post my resalts when I get them but I think I will be very happy in the end. I was going to try some a123 but why bother if air thunders will work with a little ceativity.

I have posted the spec sheet like 5 times but I never get tires of seeing it it's just awsome and everyone what's to see it so here it is again. GO AIR THUNDERS and I bet you will love them I do and there great.

we all need a support group. "Hi my name is Richard and I'm a heli addict." 0000001
