I am looking for some 4s batteries who has the best deals?

hitec hs-56mg or the jr mg servos? I assume both will work but are the jr worth twice the money??

beg to differ majorly on the battery.
Outrage 4S 2200s trump the living dog crap out of the Zippys.

way more power.. and alot more cycles.
also note those are only 20C not even the 25C Zippy-H those are not the good zippy.

so you have flown a zippy? I don't know about outrage but I do know it is way better than my tp extreem packs and flight power packs.

Yes Ive been flying zippys for the past year. they are ok average batts and are just as good (short term) as the TPs and FPs but that's not saying much. my Zippys all pretty much started losing power about the 40-50 charge mark.. I still have green and gold Flightpowers Evos with over 100+ charges on them.

the new Outrage/Desire packs are amazing and put out ALOT more power than Zippy FP or TP..
so noticeable in fact that if you fly a new zippy-H pack and then a Outrage pack you have to readjust your T-curve with the Outrages. as they are so much more hyper.

and you really should get the 25C zippys if you heart is really set on them and get the -Hs instead of the one you listed.. those are MUCH lower quality than the -Hs which are MIL-SPEC batts.
Rave on 4S needs all the power it can get.

I get 5 mins with the 13T pinion which is most likely 1 tooth down from Ink. 14T is the super setup for the 3D guys.. I fly more aggressive sport with the 13t.

these are the zippys you want. They absolutely rock, but then again my rave is -8 with 4s and is a rocket.

i am going to run the -10 motor, 14T pinion and 4S TP2600 prolite batteries - I am into aggressive 3D and hope I can get 4:30-4:45 minutes with this battery. I hear from one of the top guys this battery doesn't provide the most punch of all the batteries, but I hear its the most consistent throughout the whole flight.

Yeh if you are set on trying the zippys the one Merlin posted is far better than the above one.

thats the Milspec 25C version.

however.. still even after testing these the Outrages still kick them in the butt.

let your personal budget and flight style decide.

I don't think there is a Hitec HS56MG. The HS65MG is the Hitec people use in this application. The HS65MG is $36 and the JR287MG is $50.

The Hitec is analog, and the JR is digital. The Hitec has more torque, but the JR is faster, .07s/60 as opposed to .11s/60 for the Hitec. Either is pretty fast

Since the JR is a bit faster, and seems to have enough torque, I used the JR. It will cost you $42 more for 3 JR servos on the swash.

Both of these servos have a good reputation, and I don't know if you would notice a difference. I can only say that with the JR285MG, my Rave is very quick on the stick.

I won't comment on Zippy, but I did buy 4 - 4S Outrage 2200MAH packs. All four arrived with the individual cells at 3.83v to 3.84, and that is a good sign as for quality control.

The Rave is an incredible 450, and with the good stuff, you can't go wrong.
