My 6HV
Took my fleet of heli's out for some exercise yesterday. Coronal and Eric Brandenberg showed up. Between the two of them adjusting and test flying my heli...my 6HV fly's off the hook! Eric was pulling some hard and fast hurricane’s, I swear the blades (or something) was going to break! Man...wish I could fly like that!

Now I need to buy some better batteries for this monster! 4-1/2 minutes just isn't fair when you're having fun! Now I have to wait for the weekend to go flying...rest of this week is rainy and windy

Come on weekend!!!

Now that my 6HV is flying, I've been trying to find some Gen Ace packs, but everyone is out! So while reading a thread about electric heli's, the topic of Gravity packs came to light and comparison to the Gen Ace packs was made. It also said the Gravity packs might have been made in the same factory as the Gen Ace batteries. So I ordered a set to try out while holding out for the Gen Ace pack to return to stock.

Yesterday I picked up two new Gravity 6 cell 3300mAh LiPo packs that were sent to me from Canada… One of the packs I was using on my 6HV decided to die. Cell number 4 went to 0.5Vdc, and couldn't be revived. So I disassembled the pack and created two smaller packs (a 2 cell and a 3 cell).
Last night I finally managed to get out and try the new Gravity packs that I bought! The first several flights were only 3:30 minutes long, the "break-in" period. While I was charging the new packs, I flew my Protos 500. I went through 3 packs on the Protos and 6 packs on my Compass 6HV.
Two of the flights on my 6HV, I was using 3300mAh, 50C Punch LiPo's. Compared to the Gravity packs...there was a noticeable difference! The Gravity's have a lot more power for only a 30C pack. The Punch packs are old (~1-1/2 years with little flight time), not sure how many flights are on them as I bought them used. Using the Punch LiPo's in my Protos, they're a perfect match...for me. Granite, I'm new to electrics and have a lot to learn, but I'm having fun doing it!
I would like to get a hold of 2 Gen Ace packs to try out and pit against the Gravity's. So stay tuned...
Tonight I plan on doing some more flying on the Gravity packs at ~5 minutes, or up to 20%.

Nice Ray,
your new packs looked good, just like Gens Ace do. I think you should be very happy with them.

5th flight, I set the timer to 5 minutes and 20 seconds. After the flight, I used ~74% of the pack. I think I'll leave it there! The other packs are very close to the same (+/- a couple of percent).

So life is good! Just need more time to fly!

I went out flying with Coronal and Eric Brandenburg last night. I let Eric have a wack at my new Gravity packs in my 6HV... Watching Eric push my heli close to its limits [or what I perceived as its limits], the Gravity pack held the rpm all the way through the flight (5 minutes worth). I watched my 6HV go through some amazing maneuver at close to 100 mph. Eric was impressed with my heli and how comfortable it felt to him and with the performance of the Gravity packs.

The rpm was consistent throughout the flight. The head speed didn't droop like some packs do. Even with a couple of full pitch bailouts, the head speed dropped as expected, but quickly returned and remained solid. All in all, the Gravity packs are working great...now I will see how long they last!
