I'd trust the Voltz brand in any of my larger helis. Although I do use TP batts in my larger helis as of now.

Voltz Batteries has established a solid slot in the industry.
By no means are Voltz secondary and/or "cheaper" made batteries,
They are backed by a solid company and plenty of testing.

The batteries can handle all the High Volt demands that you throw at them, Just make sure you use the correct size and do not under rate the battery for your application!

Though the battery name is still new in the industry in the short period of time they have been on the market, the batteries have proved themselves under the hardest beating and will last.

Now this is my personal input only.
I have no affiliation with Voltz, ReadyHeli, RevCo.

Go with Voltz, you won't lose!

I bought two 2500 mAh rx packs for use in my 88" MX2 airplane.
I received them a few days ago.
They appear to be a very well made pack.

One note: they do NOT include connecters.. I soldered Deans on mine.
The wires are heavier than I've seen on other packs. 12ga.
Because of the oversized wires, soldering on a Dean's was very tricky.

I'd use EC3 connectors on these wherever possible.

If you think soldering up 12ga wire is tricky try 10ga A lot of my packs are coming with big wire now. I'm really considering going to EC5s or Power Poles.

The problem I had soldering them to Deans was that the wire was almost too big for the Dean's poles. The wire on the (+) pole was too big to go on the Inside. Thats where I like to put it for neatness and compactness. Look how far the (+) wire sticks out!!

Add to that, I only had a 40 watt soldering iron available.. It Was very difficult to get a clean solder joint.

They look ugly, I know. I'm almost embarrassed to show these pictures online. (I consider myself a better-than average solderer) As soon as I can get to the hobby shop, I'll buy some EC3 connectors.
I didn't want to go EC3 at first because it would require me to change charging equipment over. everything I own has Deans.

Voltz
I have many Voltz batteries and have never had a problem with any of them. One of the first batteries I bought was a 11.1v 35c 3s 2200ma to try for a 450 pro. I was using the battery, completely impressed with the power, and like everyone does every now and then, ran it down too much. The cells were reading somewhere around 3.1v per. Thought I just toasted the brand new battery. Charged it up, I think I put back about 2250ma, but the battery was fine. And now after 100+ more cycles, It's still fine. I am waiting for the receiver packs to be in stock and I am going to start using those on my 600 and 700.

You can just make an adapter for your charger that plugs into the deans lead. I have several of these for different types of connectors.

+1

I have several different connectors as well. Originally my plan was to make them all Deans, but figured its a waste of time, seeing everything charges and discharges fine.
Why change when it works very well.
