Not easy to answer. I don't think they are worth the extra for my flying and in my limited experience. I have a 12S4000 Spyder 30C which seems to perform as well as a 12S4400 Thunder Power 70C I also have. My Thunder Power pack is 2 seasons newer than the Spyder as well. I can only tell the difference in extreme power situations. I know the Thudner Power pack will have more reserve power and tolerate the high amps better, but it's not apparent when flying in my case. Nothing wrong with Thor either.Rob

If you have the power system and flying style to demand higher discharge rates then a 65c can be a benefit, followed by shorter flight times.

It seem like the 45c is a great compromise, I have even seen a few pros using 45c.

I prefer 45c packs because they seem to be a little lighter in the air.

I've been flying 3d for 8 years, I have competed in the UK and done reasonably well and I use 20C packs in my 600sx and in my Trex 700E V2.

If you want to improve your flying skills, buy lots of cheap packs and learn how to look after them.

The wire guage and connections can't handle more than 35C anyway.

I'm my opinion, the high priced 65c top of line packs aare way over priced. I'm a sport flier and my 40c packs perform very well which I've had for several years and the IR of the packs are low.Minicopter Triabolo 700, Minicopter Diabolo 700, Minicopter Diabolo 600, Minicopter Diabolo 550, Goblin 770, HD 750, HD Cell 500

Also keep in mind that "C" ratings are arbitrary, there is no standard.

Some packs are labeled 35C but perform and stay cool like another brands 65C.

So really just use quality mainstream packs and you should be in great shape.

There's only a few cell manufacturers, the quality of the packs come from aging and matching. Aging packs gets their chemistry stabilized which takes time. The more stable the chemistry, the better they will perform, take abuse, and last. The process is expensive, these pack manufacturers have to sit on stock and constantly monitor the cells in a climate controlled environment. Only then are they voltage and resistance matched and made into packs.

Keep in mind that most LiPo batteries are quality control sorted. Meaning they are the same packs and the ones with a lower IR are rated with a higher C than a pack with a higher IR. So, you have to ask yourself this question. Do you want to pay good money for a pack that is known to have manufacturing defects?

I used to only buy HK batts like, zippy, and turnigy(A-spec, nano, etc...) with high c ratings, they work fine. I still use them.
But when I would do hard pull outs, my helis would bogg, and my packs would puff so I figured I needed a bigger motor and possibly some higher quality packs. So I got a couple Pulse 65c....HOLY CRAP! WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Needless to say I didn't need a bigger motor, just better packs. No bogging! And no puffed packs!

Learning 3d I bought most of my packs used from reputable guys, and did fine.
I learned to sort out what packs to buy, and from who(reputable sellers), and when to buy new.

I still buy good used packs all the time.

Most Packs never get past a 30C rating. there are some pretty handy "C" rating calculators on web. Databases of various lipos are online too. you do need to be able the ir of the packs first though.

You can buy expensive packs thinking you are saving money in the long run then go and damage them in a crash or by incorrect use!

Answer me this, who learns 3D quicker, the guy with 3 expensive packs or the guy with 6 cheaper packs?

with todays charger technology and high charge rates, i have two sets of "expensive" 70c packs for each heli i fly and i can charge faster than i can fly them dead. I can pull on them as hard as i want with a Kosmik 200 and they just keep working flight after flight.
