Default Confused... Align 4200 vs 4400 ...

Anyone know why the Align 4200 is consistently more expensive than the 4400?

Which one is better might be the actual question (??)

It uses actual Thunderpower cells. From the flight reports I've read the 4400's are running cooler. They have a higher capacity and discharge rating. The downside is no one knows who makes the cells (if that really matters).

Default Where to buy 4400's? -

LHS "Aero Micro" - owner said he won't stock the 44's - said no one would fly them because they are too heavy when compared to the 4200's Perhaps he does not want to carry a $179 pack.

WHERE are folks buying the 4400's? - are they $179?

The 42's are the tp cells, but I personally am running the 44's. Then seem to take the amp load better, and provide more consistant power throughout the flight. You tend to notice the head speed consistantly drop throughout the flight with the 42's

King- where did you buy your 44's - how much did you pay? I'm trying to figure out of the STICKER on the BOX means anything (179 for 44's)?

From what I've read the $179 price is only good for 1 pack at the time you purchased the heli. There was no coupon or anything in my box. MyLHS just sold me 1 for $179.

After the first batch of kits, they started putting a sticker on the outside of the box advertising the prices of a battery if you wished to purchase one at the same time you were purchasing a kit.

Does anyone know if the 4400 and 4200 use the same balance plug? I am assuming they do.

Yes, they both use the same balance plugs (I have both batteries).
