You want regular Turnigy's, either the 30C ones or the 40C ones.

The Zippy ones aren't as good.

The Turnigy nano-tech's are supposed to be good but there are quite a few people who have had problems with them puffing. I can't comment because ive never owned any nano-tech's.
60% of the time, it works every time!

I love the nano-tech, you just gotta be gentle with them at first, I also stay below 2c charge... I think people doing the 5-10c will have them puff

Since I couldn't find a Gen Ace 2600 I've just ordered a Nano 35C for my 500. We'll see how it holds up over time. I've been happy with the older Nano I bought for a 450. When Gen Aces's show up as available I may get a pack or two to compare.

Well if Hobby City links were not disabled here I could point you right to them

Just add a extra w to the front of these links:

ww.hobby king.com/hobbycity/store/__10383__Turnigy_2200mAh_3S_35C_Lipo_Pack.html

ww.hobby king.com/hobbycity/store/__10101__Turnigy_3000mAh_6S_35C_Lipo_Pack.html

Always check the measurements to make sure they will fit your application .

I've had more regular Turnigy lipos puff than Nano-techs. My Nano-Techs that I use for my Trex 500s have been rock solid performers.
