Has anyone else had trouble reaching Flight Power? I tried today to call for tech support and the phones are not working or they are out of service? Has another battery company got troubles?

The few times I had interaction with them they were right on my email, I mean within minutes. Maybe you called when they were all busy, just luck of the draw. I would try email and then again with the phone on Monday Morning.

I tried to contact Flight Power again. Still no luck, get message that the phones are disconnected? Hummmmm? This is what has puzzled me as I too had a rapid response prior to this. Concerned after reading about name changes with other companies. Hope for the best.

Not sure if this is true or not so take this as conjecture, but at MHA this weekend I heard they were out of business.....

When I raved about them that was like 2 years ago back when they were NOT crap! Now you all are right... They went down hill and dont even compete with the batts out today. Sorry if you got crap man. All I can say is pay attention to how old my reviews are! Like anything with tech today, things change fast and 6 months ago is OLD... Again sorry for seeing you waste $300

FYI My understanding is FP has shut down US support operations

Finless Bob is connected to Hobbico, Hobbico sells FP products.

Do you think he would talk bad about them????

Flight Power batteies aren't crap, they're just very overpriced for the performance they offer. The new EON-X 30C 3s 2200 LiPo is around £45 in the UK, when I can get a 2250 3S 25C pack for half that price with near identical performance. I'd only consider buying Flight Power in the future if the pack configuration I want isn't available anywhere else.

Doesn't high price + low quality = crappy product??

You must be a politician. Gotta love how you tried to spin that one!! LOL
