I have been looking/asking here for advice on LiPo for my 500.I am a learner by the way.
I have gleaned that basically that i can not go wrong with the major brands,TP,FP,OUTRAGE and KONG POWER.
But it was mentioned that for the novice cheaper cells are also a good idea,more packs equals more time in the air.I can now see this point.
This brings me to the Align packs for the 500.Doing searches there are a lot of posts saying that the Align cells are poor,puffing and failure.But these seem to be on the trex450 mostly.Just read a posts one the 250 page and the cells for that are said to be very good.Someone mentioned that Align are possibly using new/different cells.
Are the Align 2500 6s packs worth getting?If i need £120 packs so be it but the Align packs at £80 would make sense.More for my money.But if they puff or fail early in most cases i will stay clear.

Go with the Align packs - they are OK - I have had them in my 500 since last April and they are still good. As with all packs , don't take too much out of them, don't leave them fully charged for long periods and balance charge them...

I whole heartedly recommend the Rhino or Zippy packs from HobbyCity. These are about 1/3 the price and perform very well. I have 4 packs made up from 2X3s packs in series for my T500 and the power is really good. On a 13t pinion I get about 5 to 6 minutes of mixed flying. Not bad at all. The Rhino 2,350 3S packs cost something like $26.00. Not bad having a 6cell pack for about 50 bucks. I plan on buying some 6S 1p soon. Those they have for about 85 bucks. Practically every major manufacturer makes good batteries, I guess it comes down to personal preference. I've never flown the Align packs myself but I assume they are good too.
Excuse me now, goin' flying.

I don't do 3D....no wait. Oh thats right, I can't do 3D!

The Align 6S 2500 pack that I used was great till the day I sold it.(easily 100+ cycles). I had FP packs go weak with around 50 cycles on them. I dont even consider TP or FP anymore. And as mentioned above, the zippy and rhino packs are working great for many people. I know a few guys using them and are very happy. My favorite for the 500 was definately the Outrage 6S 3000.

Here's some good packs that are on sale http://www.amainhobbies.com/product...oducts_id/24726 I have used this brand and they have always performed well for me. No puffing etc and for a 2200 6S 30C battery it's hard to beat the $69.
