Thought you guys might enjoy this, its a excel calculator to calculate and compare the true cost of different lipos. I was using it to figure out the next lipo's i am going to buy for my trex 500, logo 400 and logo 600 (I use 6S in the trex and 400, and two 6S packs in series for my logo 600)

I posted a pdf of it in my gallery, anyone know how to post an excel sheet? If you want, pm me and i can email it to you.

Nice.

Do you have firsthand experience with a getting 200 cycles from a Hyperion pack, or is that just mfg.'s claim? This is critical, because the cost/flight only stays roughly equitable if you get those 200 cycles.

i don't have firsthand experience, but trusted third party tests (everydayflier at rcgroups) as well as others have confirmed that even being charged at 5C and discharged pretty rough, you can get 200 cycles, or sometimes more.

and to add to that, honestly, i'm happy with the perfromance of 20C turnigy/flightmax and $/min and $/flight, they can't be beat for price, even though you'll replace them more often. Also, it makes me less nervous about crashing them as i have less money invested in each pack.

I may try the hyperions at some point cause i hear they are great, but its hard to pay 3-4X turnigy price when i'm currently pretty happy with turnigy's

I don't crash a lot, but I can tell you that I've only scraped 1 battery due to a crash, if you fly with a canopy then most of the time you can save you batteries. Also, Hyperion have a crash replacement warranty.
