Hello everyone. I taco a pack a couple of days ago and need to find a new pack. I am running 10S on my Logo 600. I have done both the single 10S stick and the 2 X 5S stick.

I use 5X2 from Hobby City. The last ones I bought were Turnigy 5000mah .
I don't fly any 3D so these seem to be fine.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

2 x 5s Hyperion G3 VX 4200 here.

If you want you can do a alu U piece that fits inside the frame (a little dremel in the front), that way you wont taco any more packs, unless you are not nose diving into concrete.

About $90 each (5S 5000mah) but add about 30 for shipping (fast 5 day shipment from HC to states.)

Gyrofreak Those Turnigy 5s 5000mah are about $80 each from the Hong Kong warehouse (when they are in stock). So you save $10 a pack when ordering from there instead of the warehouse in Germany.

I'm sure it isn't that big a deal but has anyone flown 3d with the 2x5s 5000 Turnigy packs? How did that work out?

The Zippy Flightmax packs are a little lighter than the Turnigy packs, and seem to have the same quality and are similarly priced. Check the weights, it can be significant.

The less a man makes a clarative statement, the less likely he is to look like a fool in retrospect.

Thing to be VERY aware of with the Zippy, Rhino type packs is their dam heavy, in the Logo in "stock" form, if you are 307-315mm in length total between one pack or two individual packs you must have a total weight not exceeding 1220 grams or you will be nose heavy, this I assure you of so please keep that in mind. The new TP and Hyperions are MUCH lighter, due to different chemistry.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I recently bought a V-Plus 10S 4500mah 30C pack from

http://www.century-rc.com/ecs/produ...03&kind_id=661.

If you register on the site they are $252. So far I have about 20 flights on it and I am impressed. The weight is 1120grams. I have some Outrage packs but they are on the heavy side making the heli nose heavy.

I also use the 5s 5000ma Zippies....28 cycles for each set so far, no complaints.

Hardwired together and turned into 10s sticks, 1273 grams

Previously used 10s TP 3850s @ 1070grams.

25% more flight time for a 7% weight increase.....better in the wind, autos about the same. Me like.

That would be about 20% weight increase rather then 7..
(1070grams -> 1273)

Edit: aha, understand that you mean 7% overall with the whole heli... alright.

I can confirm that the V-Plus XP packs are great. Low IR at about 70+ flights and they provide great power at a great price.

I had some PMs about the Zippies....I hardwired mine which is the hard way but saves some weight and keeps the packs matched.

I also changed the balance leads which resulted in 18 solder joints per set of batteries (12 balance + 6 big wire).

the 3rd bearing on my motor mount prevents the battery from mounting "sideways", which would be the easiest fit for the 5s 5000s...laying the batteries in the tray horizontally provides less than 2mm clearance on the side, so I have to run the leads over the top of the battery.

All said and done, a few bulk purchases on the batteries, connectors and leads, and Hobby City's ridiculously overpriced shipping...this battery is still ridiculously cheap for providing as much or more performance than all the other batteries I have tried...including the 'names'

Excellent info KC! Thanks for sharing. This is what I plan to do as well. Just have to decide between the Turnigy 30c 5s 4000 mah and the 5s 5000 mah.

I'm leaning towards 4000 mah right now. That should provide about 4.5 minutes of flight time at 70% capacity used for $100 a 10s pack.

right on

fwiw I'm using a lighter 4025 motor and a stock canopy with almost no paint on it, so its still tail heavy with the honkin' ugly looking Zippy 5000ma homebrew.

Heres a picture of where it balances. Coincidentally, it aligns on the rear edge of the last 'stub' on the bottom of the frame.
