it's heavy but it will fly, the crazy 3D flyers may notice a difference but there are a lot of us using big bulky 3k=3300's i have not seen one yet that was not heavy.

I have been looking over the current offerings of batteries, this XL doc is a work in Progress...

I have been looking for batteries for a 700E 12S, 550 6S, 600 12S, 500 6S. As I find them I add them.

It opens with Microsoft Excel danny. Open Office might open it too.

Here's the battery I've been using on my 500 http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idproduct=9489

Danny if you don't have Office installed you can probably download/install this viewer to open that file.

Well I"m not into 3D flying just yet I still have a very long ways to go and my skills right now are nothing to really talk about lol. I have not has as much flying time as a normal person that flies. Between work and the heat this past summer its really been slow here. But I really just like to see it fly around just knowing that I"m the one that's making the heli do that gives me a big thrill.

I've been using Turnigy Nano-Tech 3300's. According to HK, they are only 489 grams with plug, wire and case, which is pretty light for a 6S 3300. These batteries kick butt. Great power and they give me an easy 8-9 minutes of sport flying. I put about 2500mah back into them afterwords. I've gone 11 minutes on one, but I don't make that a habit because it drained it abit more than 80%. After 8-9 minutes, I need a break anyway. lol

They are 25C continuous and 50C burst rated

82.5A continuous
165 burst

Should be more than enough.

You know I don't even know what pinion I've got on this thing. I bought it used. It flies great and I haven't touched it, but I know it does have the older 500L motor.

I have my timer set to 6 minutes for my 2,500mah batteries and these things easily go 3-4 minutes beyond the alarm. I forgot one day and looked down and it showed 6 minutes past the alarm. Put a little more than 80% back in, so didn't want to do that again. These batteries have plenty of umph. I can definitely tell the difference between these and my other batteries as soon as it spools up. Alot more headspeed with these! They come down barely warm and as square as a brick. No puffing thus far, but I only have 10-12 cycles on them.

I have a TP2750Mah and a TP3300Mah battery that I gave mega bucks for and these 2 batteries have less then 25 cycles on them and right now they both have puffed. I have never ran these batteries past the 80% mark. Mainly because they were so expensive and I did not want to danage them. So right now who knows how long they will last. I have recently order 3 more batteries for my 500. 2 are Flightmax 3000Mah and one is a G-force 3300Mah. So I'll see how these batteries work out for the 500.

If you go heavy on the battery you might get it nose heavy. All pilots would feel the impact because if you balance it out in normal hover it will screw you on the inverted.
Make sure you balance it with weight. Also doing that will increase overall weight and you may not see the jump on flight time compared to a 3000 mAh pack.
I run 2950 mAh packs on mine that balance the heli great out of the box. My flight time is about 5:30 minutes and still leaves about 30-35% in the battery.
If I would hover only and just fly around a little bit I might get the flight time up further. Also I do not like to fly below 30% (gives me some buffer to bring back the heli when it got too far away).
My current packs have more than 100 cycles. So I am still quite happy with them. I would not go for more than 3000 mAh on a 6S setup.
