yeah me too, I ordered 2, price is right and they seem to have good reviews on HF. Both packs shipped EMS were $148 plus I had a $10 coupon. I post results on the power and durability.

Zippy
I got 2ea 30C 2650 Mah and 1ea 20C 2650 MAH today. They both perform great. I flew for my normal 6 minutes in ID1 and 2. Put back 1892 MAH.

They fit perfect with no Mod for me. My only complaint is having to cut the wire and add the deans connector. The wire is to short. It bareley reaches the ESC.

I don't have a scale. I can tell you, mine is still tail heavy. But I have the full size servo on the tail.

Yeah, I will let you know. I fly just about everyday. 50 cycles will come pretty quick.

I will have mine today. I was not happy about the bullet connector. Deans are easy to put on but not really sure why they stopped using deans.

I got the batteries. They are a little bit bigger than my Outrage XP25 pack. They have to be mounted low on the tray to fit the canopy, but my CG is perfect. The connectors suck but it only took a few min to change them. I have 1 charged up and reading 4.2v in all cells. I will post flight performance this week.

I have 3 of the new 3S 2650 30C Zippys. They run great. All 3 were balanced within .020 volts and have continued to stay balanced through about 5 cycles each.

so far i have 3 flights on these packs. Good power and flight time (5 min on timer). I would guess as good as my outrage xp25's. for the money you really can't beat them.

I've used Zippy's in the past on my B400. They puffed really soon after I got them. Maybe 25 flights or so. I buy Thunder Power now just to be safe. I'd rather buy it once and spend more than to buy it twice and spend even more. IMHO.

Seems to be more a case of luck of the draw with em, I have 4 zippy + 1 O/rage, the oldest being the outrage at about 1 yr, my first zippy is about the same age, and my newest one maybe 2 months old.

Out of my packs the Outrage lasted longest, only going down hill quite recently, but surpriseingly my worst pack is the second newest zippy only a 2-3 months old, a freind had a Zippy go south after only 10 flights.

I am down to just 1 reasonable pack now(my newest zippy), all the rest are gradually dieing.

Ill still buy more zippy, but Im going to fork out for another outrage next time round and see how that goes.

I was think of giving these zippy batteries a try. I know alot of companys claim ther packs are 2500mah 0r 3000mah and recommend charging at 1c or 2.5 to 3.0 amps but who knows if the packs really put out that much mah to begin with we might be better off charging them at a lower rate. A 2500 pack might only be 2200 or a 3000 pack could be 2800 or less is there any way to check what the capacity of the batteries really are? Or just charge them at what they recommend and hope they last awhile. I have two brand new outrage packs now both are the same 2500 25c packs but one pack i get almost 2-3 minutes longer if that is the case they cannot be the same rating of what they claim to be. I am not claiming one to be defective only there is a noticeable difference.
