I personally can get 150+ cycles out of packs costing 1/3 the price. You can't buy knowledge.
If you're not measuring voltage under load and you're not measuring IR then you don't know what you're getting and you don't know how your packs are performing relative to other packs.

hey
With all this testing, monitoring...(I know more then you do stuff) do any of you guys get any stick time

Things i have never done
meaure pitch
measure IR
ballance blades
measure motor temp
tach head speed.

Are you intending to say that all new LiPo batteries, regardless of manufacturer, are using the same latest chemistry that can support these new high charge rates?
Yes.

I don't care how my packs compare to other packs, they perform, end of. There is so much more to power than the name or the claimed C rating on the label.

60% of the time, it works every time!

What I care about is how much time I spend flying vs. how much time I spend waiting for batteries to charge vs. flight quality. With 5 minute flights per charge and 1C charge rate I need 12 chargers and 13 batteries to not wait, but with a 12C charge rate I need 1 charger and 2 batteries. 1 charger and 2 batteries is a lot cheaper and takes up less space in my bag. If these batteries have enough power for a decent flight, and can be cycled enough times to make them worth the cost then they're perfect for me, and the only improvement would be more capacity for increased flight times between swapping batteries. If all modern batteries meet these qualifications, then all modern batteries are good enough, but I don't believe all manufacturers have reached that goal yet.

hahahha
whats funny is i have 12 flight packs 24 5000mah 6s batteries

since i only fly 700-800 class heli...I have 2 chargers... 24 for batteries and no wait times...get more batteries perferably the pusle 6s 5000mah 65c thats how we roll LOLOLOL

I agree! Put your money where your mouth is! I am sick and tired of the cheerleaders pumping up products without any verifiable proof.

There has been no recent change is LiPo chemistry as Richardmid1 mentioned. What has gotten better is quality control. A LiPo's performance is largely based on how carefully it was manufactured (shaping and forming charging). If a manufacturer takes a short cut in order to reduce the manufacturing time, the quality of the product coming out the door will suffer.

It's a shame you prefer to go through life ignorant of real data. There is nothing wrong with having knowledge. IR measurement is the best way to determine the performance and health of a battery.

Having 2 flight packs and a mega charger, power supply and geny is all very well but no good to someone like me who likes to grab 4-5 flights on my way to and from work. That's why I prefer the 'many cheaper packs' way and parallel charge so I don't need to worry what charge c rating the packs are capable of. Cheap or not the packs will last longer this way.

60% of the time, it works every time!

@rexxigpilot
its not suppose to be a job..its suppose to be fun...what does your checking all that stuff do for you...my heli flies just like yours and i have no wait times!

Im not cheerleader, just a guy that found something he likes and shared his thoughts...ill keep them to myself from now on...

While your your checking PH, sodium Ion fluctuations, temperature, and battery chemistry....Ill be Piro flipping infront of my house with all my batteries...see you at ircha...if you dont want to wait to fly stop by Props tent Boyaaaa Ill share...but no checking if the puff we throw them away and buy new LOL
