A123's preceded Lipos, they historically could not release current quickly, but I have not built a pack to try them. I routinely use Lithium ion batteries for my starter batteries and to power the RX/servos. I make my own packs using heavy gage wire and balance connectors. They are inexpensive and built better than what is commercially available. IMR has a great selection, there are different chemistries to select from depending on the properties desired.Tom

A123 cells can fly a heli just fine and have in the past. Each cell is 3.3v and 2300mah. So if ya have a 6 cell lipo heli then you need 7 A123 cells in series and double them up in parallel for flight time so 7s2p or 14 cells. They are larger then a lipo pack but safer.

Id say equal or prob less flight time then a lipo pack, but you can drain them down to 0% and then turn around and slam the current back into them at very high charge current rates for 1000s of cycles. They are more robust then any lipo
