Little weight? EVO 2500 is about 210g
TP 2100 pro-lite are about 142g and TP 2200 extreme are about 172g with deans installed on them. IMO the 2500 pack are way heavy. My bird is already a little nose heavy.

I have one that I am using on my v2. It is stock and I do not really feel the weight. I also have a 2170, tp 2200, and the Align battery. I think it is a good match with the xl. That motor heats up my other batteries pretty good, but the 2500 stay a lot cooler. As for the weight, it kind of depends on what you are flying. If you have a heavier motor plus an additional bec or other extras, I think at some point the weight is going to catch up. I have not weighed my helicopter, but it should be the stock v2 weight plus about 50g.

Keep in mind the FP 2500 pro-lites weigh the same as the 2170 EVOs. There are a few members flying the lite 2500's with very good results.

Thanks Andre for the link! I don't even own the T-tex 450 yet ( i said yet ) , but was comparing battery weights with Mah's and the 2500 seemed like a good alternative. Since i'll be just starting out to , i think the little heavier battery may help in keeping the heli a little more stable. It sounds like Bob ( finless) is having good luck with the 2500 batts , and say's he can hardly tell the difference in the weight.......that's good news! 5+ minutes i guess in the heli world is good , and i guess i'll have to get used to that. I'm used to flying for around 10-20 minutes with the smaller glow and larger gas powered planes. My room mates 33% yak with a 3W 80 can get a 12-15 minute flight of some pretty hard 3D , and doesn't even burn 1/2 a tank. BUT......i think the guys with the larger .90 size heli's are getting some pretty long flight's as well.

EVO 25 3s1p 2170 compared to EVO 25 3s1p 2500 with my V2 and each other.

I do not have a EVO Lite 2500 to add to the photos right this minute. Will get one.

sheesh!!! is that thing even able to fit in the rex 450? that thing looks bigger than i thought it would. I wonder if Finless was using the HFX frame set up or something to get his to fit? For only 330 mah more....that thing looks twice the size.

No it fits fine under the v2 canopy. It only weighs 35g more than the 2170.

I just picked up an evo-lite 2500mah pack yesterday. Here's some comparison pics between it and an evo-25 2170mah.

You gotta remember most people are running metal tails which actually makes heavier batteries balance out much better. I have a TP prolite and it's waayyyyy to light, I ended up adding wheel weights to mine just to make it the same weight of my EVOs.
